Default Unknown File System in disk properties

I have two 64GB Corsair Flash Voyagers when I attempted to encrypt one using Microsoft's bitlocker To Go.. For some reason bitlocker kept pausing and would not resume so I canceled after 5% then attempted to remove bitlocker encryption but experienced same issues with decryption with it pausing so I formatted the drive which notified me it would remove encrypted contents as well as the encryption except now I can't get it to format or recognise file system?

I've tried going into properties and uninstalling device from computer.. it reinstalled ok but still can't get it to format is their anyway I can fix this the datas not important as it served as a backup but would like to use the usb again

Have you tried formatting it with diskpart?
If that doesn't help, have you tried formatting it on a non-Windows based computer?

I haven't tried in a non windows based computer but have tried using command line etc. it shows disk but states no media "Disk 5 but No Media" I'm also experincing issues with my other Corsair Voyager as PS3 & Multiple Media Entertainment players unable to see files on USB.. not sure why it's behaving like that but I've formatted it and reloaded files still no result and haven't attempted any type of encryption on that drive or done anything to it.

The 1st USB no longer shows up in my computer but 2nd is still accessible can still transfer files fine but media isn't detected on other devices

You may also want to try the command prompt diskpart > clean.
I was able to select the disk but it states
"Virtual Disk Service error:
There is no media in the device."
