Use GPARTED in Linux. Delete the partition table and then format it using whichever filesystem you prefer. Linux gives no craps.

After following the whole process, I have not seen StorageDevicePolicies after "Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control"  so, what should I do to format my 8 GB SanDisk Pen Drive?
