Usb flash memory stick formating

As i was transferring a movie to my 1GB usb an error came up saying that the usb device is write protected. I googled it and most blogs say that the most effective solution is to format it via Ms-Dos in safe-mode. I've started the format 5 hours ago and it's still at 10%. Any hint about why it's taking too long?
