USB reverting img

Hi,

I recently installed the Moblin OS .img to my USB drive using this guide Using the Moblin Live Image | moblin.orgfor windows.
But now I dont need it anymore, so how can I revert my USB to normal FAT32 or NTFS state. When I try to format in the explorer, only option for size is ~700mb, which is the size of the .img but my USB has the 16GB capacity. And even when I try to format it, i get an error message.

Please help because I depend on my USB
