Unhappy Can no longer mount my usb for live boot!

Hey there everyone, first off I'm pretty new to linux, have tried many distro's and am currently running lubuntu 12.10 (pretty sure). I love linux and the possibilities that come with it but right now i just don't have the time to optimize and tweak like i would like to. That being said I have been trying to switch back to windows temporarily but when trying to use UNETBOOTIN my usb can't mount. When i plug it back in for automatic mount i get this message:

Error mounting system-managed device /dev/sdb1: Command-line `mount "/mnt/usb-PNY_USB_2.0_FD_AA2C1A1800000449-0:0-part1"' exited with non-zero exit status 32: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

I really want to mount this usb so i can switch back to windows for a little until i have more free time. PLEASE HELP ME! thanks!

Once you used the flash drive with unetbootin/imagewriter or dd command, flash drive will not be mounted normally.

use gparted if you are on ubuntu or bootice in windows to restore to normal conditions.
Even windows format will detect the size of iso file you used on the drive.
