You did not likely format the USB drive at the same time you reformatted the OS. Try this. Remove the USB device from your computer. Then, shut your system completely down. Restart you computer. After it boots all the way back to Windows, reattach the USB drive. You system should then detect the USB drive and install (if needed) the drivers for it. Good luck!

diskpart.exe in start menu search
open computer management and choose "disk management" in the left pane
your hard disk is usually named "disk 0" so the usb will be named "disk 1" unless yo have another hard disk
the other hard disk will be disk 1 and your usb will be disk 2
when diskpart cmd opens type "select disk 1" without quotes or whatever the number of the usb drive shown in the disk management
type "clean" without quotes
exit the diskpart CMD
then right click on your usb drive shown in "computer" and click format
choose the extension you want and you are done
