I think I forgot to do that before, a couple more things popped up, but no ghosted ones?

And yes cmd prompt was still open.

Ideas on which one it is?

Well as stated,, Learn how to use USBDeview to uninstall the USB device.
It is the best way that I have found to clean up bogus USB devices.
Take the time to learn how to use it,, it will probably help you fix this problem much easier.
It has been recently updated to 1.56. And is probably the single most awesome tool for USB devices ever created.

Also,, try this

save the following text to the root of the thumb drive as a file called autorun.ini

Code:
[Autorun]
Label=JScience
Pull the stick out and put back in.
Check the name

As a general comment:

Tepid -- you are 100% correct in recommending FAT32 as a "universal" format. I don't know what bridge some of these people lived under but always use Fat32 when going cross-platform.

Now I do not have usb 3.0, but I do know that if using DiskPart, you run their CLEAN ALL command, then you can solve many problems. I can not say that what the situation is here since I do not have the corresponding hardware.
