Error in IOCTL call while formatting my PEN DRIVE ?

This is Ashish Sharma from Noida, I have a 4GB Pen drive of Kingston whose number is DT I/4GB.
I got a problem with my USB drive.
The USB drive is detected when i plug it to the USB port but the properties of the removable hard drive shows 0 free space and 0 used space. When anything is tried upon it, like opening the drive or sending data to it, it says, insert a disk. I tried to format the drive through DOS too but it says "Error in IOCTL call". So nothin is workin. I tried low level formattin utilities too but they did not work at all. Any idea of what should i do to make my USB usable..??

the USB drive is most likely faulty, get it replaced if under warranty.
