Hi guys... I have a 32GB HP pen drive with UDF format. My PC recognize it as cd and do not allow copying, pasting and deleting of any file. I am not concerned about the data in it. I just want to make it re-writable
Can somebody tell me how to format it into FAT32 or any other way to make re-writable?

You must not be doing something right because I just tested a couple of USB flash drives on my Win7 machine & they ALL show up in Easeus Partition Master as Disk 2. Is it possible your pendrive is bad?

First you must delete the existing UDF partition using third-party partition management software, then you'll be able to create a new FAT32 or NTFS partition on the pen drive.

If you run in to problems, just throw the pen drive away and buy a new one.

Disk management softwares don't allow to delete or format cd

As phil22 stated, you need 3rd party software, not Disk Management. You will have to remove all files & partitioning from the drive so that it has nothing but unallocated space, then create a new partition, then format as FAT32 or NTFS.
