Hello James, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if you may be able to use the tutorial below to run the Clean command on your USB flash drive. This will hopefully wipe the USB clean and leave it as unallocated space to then hopefully be able to format it afterwards.

Disk - Clean and Clean All with Diskpart Command

Hope this helps,
Shawn
