1) Right click on the "My Computer" icon on the desktop> select MANAGE.

2)Select Disk management from the list on the left hand part of new window.

3) Find your device listed on the right side.

4) Try creating a partition if none exists and then format with FAT. If a partition already exists you can try deleting it and recreating&formatting it.

Here is a neat trick I learned from my work @ Napster, all you need is WMP 10 (as long as your PC is recognising it, which you said it is). Plug in the storage device then open WMP hit the sync tab like you were going to trans. music to it and on the top right side of that tab you'll see your Mass Storage Device (could be manf. name) then a row of 4 icons the last icon looks kinda like a check mark being erased. Hit that to format device and you should be all set.

Ive been seeing that people have had a lot of issues with this brand. They said they bought a newer one and had no problems....
