Boot to a live cd and format it from there. Unbuntu live disk would work fine, or a winpe one if you've got access to that.

Had this problem with my curzer disk. I used Dos command Diskpart.
Open a cmd prompt w/admin privilage.
Enter the followinf commands:
.. Diskpart list disk.
.. diskpart select disk n (n is the number for the usb drive from above.
.. diskpart detail disk (to verify you selected the correct drive)
.. Dispart clean ( removes all MBRs)

Dispart /? should display all parameters (switches).
