Win7 usb/dvd download tool, flashdrive wont stay conected

I used the win7 usb/dvd tool to install Win8, but now i want to use the stick for other stuff again. When I put the stick in it just connects and then disconnects every 15 seconds or so. Tried to right click and format, but it fails, guessing because it disconnects. Also tried using diskpart in cmd but had the same results.

Thanks for any help in advance

Welcome to Seven Forums wakyxaky. You might try booting to safe mode to try to format from there. It's worth a try. You might also try this USB format tool, and see if it can complete.
