Most likely, your USB-stick was corrupted due to a virus but this rarely happens. There are no known viruses that act like this and it is possible that the stick got corrupted by 3rd party applications or due to some unknown reasons. I doubt that using other formatting tools will format your drive but you could try results from this search query on Software Informer website.
