Use gparted, like in this how-to. But don't use FAT32, or you will have a 4 GByte file size limit. Use NTFS instead.

and if I want to use only with the help of Konsole, then what will be the command for formatting the USB ? – KUNJESH KUMAR MISHRA Oct 11 '13 at 5:52
I've used sudo cfdisk <device> and also sudo fdisk <device> with success pretty often. sudo parted (notice: without the 'g') is a bit more user-friendly than both fdisk and cfdisk. – MadMike Oct 11 '13 at 5:58
