I had the same Problem. There was some sharing Violation Errors as well. I plugged the USB Pen Drive into another Computer and I was able to Delete it.

I am sure this would help.

OK there is a Utility you can download. Acrually this utility will help you format the USB Pen Drive and Make it Bootable and in t he process all the files in it would be deleted.

Try this.
