USB Formatting help! I think I broke it....

So I was using my 32GB flash drive as a boot drive for my new PC. So I followed a guide online using diskpart etc to format it correctly. Now, I read another guide online to reset it to default settings. It said to use diskpart again to "clean all" the drive. So I did that and went into the Computer>Select flash drive>format>NTSB>format process, and it says it cannot format the disk, and now when I'm in my Computer and try to select the flash drive, it says "Please insert a disk into Removable Disk (H: )"

So I effectively can't use it. Help?

    did you recreate partition in diskpart after you "clean all"?

    Nope, just created NTFS partition. That worked, thanks a ton!
