    What brand is it?

    Have you looked at the properties of the files on it? Have you tried to manually change them?

    Recently I tried wiping files from a flash drive adapter for a cameras SDHC card and it refused (though I could copy them to my hard drive). I figured it out later. When I first plugged the drive in I got a window that asked what I wanted to do and I selected "view files". The window that popped up to view the files would not let me delete them but if I closed it and then looked at the drive in Windows Explorer where it had a drive letter ("H" I think) then I could delete the files from there. You might try that and see what happens. Is it a 4gig flash drive or Camera card in an adapter or Camera card in the Camera?
