Mostly I format the USB disk using the GUI of windows. But sometimes this does not work and the USB drive becomes unusable. Then I need to format the USB disk using the command-line interface.
Here is the commands for formatting USB disk using CLI. Other disk can also be formatted with this command.
First, open command prompt in administrator mode. Then follow the commad below.
Diskpart list disk select disk X Clean Create partition primary Format fs=NTFS Quick Assign
Hope this is helpful.
