you can format the pen drive from command prompt
open cmd as administrator
and write the command as follows w/o the quotes:

"format Your-drive" and press enter
E.g.: format G: and press enter where G: is my drive letter for pen drive

If above command fails then use "/Q" and "/X" with space before the drive letter.

Depends on the drive. If your drive is read only then check to see if the drive has a microswitch to enable the write line to the drives electronics.
