many times these devices have a permanent partition that cannot be removed or modified where the Mfg. will stash their preloaded apps and docs for the device. Are you looking at the whole device for multiple partitions?

If this is a new device, format that pig. If you believe there was something on this device, you might need a driver (not likely these days) or maybe it is damaged? Hard to say.

Did you format it on the machine you are reading it on now? What is the OS version of the current machine you are reading it on?

Can I assume the answer to the first part was yes?

Can you try reformatting it? Do not use Quick Format.
