HELP! Tried encrypting USB Key and now says "Device not ready"

Hi All,

I am using a SAN DISK Cruzer Titanium USB drive with U3 software. Instead of using the default software on the drive, I am trying to use TrueCrypt - the freeware encryption which seems to be popular online.

I installed truecrypt locally, then created a standard volume on the usb key (which seemed to take up the whole 2.0 gigs because there was no option to make a smaller sized encrypted volume)

When i try to mount the encrypted volume, i get the error "The Device is Not Ready". I am typing in the correct password.

I just want to start over - I'd like to format it completely, but there isn't an option with TrueCrypt nor can I right click on the drive and click format in windows - I get this error message: "There is no disk in drive H, insert a disk and try again"

Any help is appreciated!
