Default I can't allocate my flash drive to its full capacity!

I have a Verbatim Store N Go 4gb flash drive that I've had for a little while. My problem is that when I went into the windows vista disk manager, only half of my flash drive was allocated. The other half wasn't. I don't even know how the heck it got like this. When I right-click on the allocated space on the flashdrive, it doesn't give me the option to extend, delete, or even create a new volume on it. After that, I tried using a different program called Avonquest Partition Commander and it shrunk my flash drive down to only 15mb!!! I can't even store anything anymore on this flash drive because it is so small! I went back into the windows vista disk manager and it STILL doesn't give me the option to do anything. I also tried formatting it and I get nothing. Does anybody know how to fix a problem like this? Please help!!! I'm screwed!
