Seems the easiest way to get help on this would be to contact the manufacturer.
Without more knowledge of the product (make,model,compatibility) it makes it hard to come to definitive answers.
Sorry I couldn't help more. Someone on here probably has had experience with them.

I once had that problem as well with my USB-Stick. I managed to get it working again under Linux. Try to format your storage there and even if it's not working you may can then format it under Mac.

Did work for me that time.
