WSFUSB shows only devices with MBR and active partition set as stated in the tooltips and readme.txt.
Please attach WinSetupFromUSB.log file found in program's directory, it may reveal something interesting.
Now get Beeblebrox and check if the first partition is set as active (80), you most likely have 00 in boot column. Set it 80 and save changes. Make sure you are working with the correct disk. Unplug the USB stick and replug it. Start WSFUSB, its the stick recognised now?
Alternatively you can format it with other tools, check this post:

I don't know what to make of the log file it looks like it finds the USB and then says just the opposite.
Let me know what you think.
Well now attachments say I'm not allowed to upload this type of file. So look at this.

Unplug it using safely remove hardware icon, plug it back in and then format it with HP USB format tool included in WSFUSB.
If you find the above complicated ot do not understand what to do, do not risk. This way below will take longer, but is much safer- download this:
Use KD_WIN.EXE, select the USB stick itself, NOT the drive letter below it. Use F10 to zero out all sectors. Unplug, replug the stick and try to format it with 2.0.6 version of HP utility.
If stick is not displayed again in it use 2.1.8, but use Beeblebrox afterwards to ensure you have set active partition.
Post again WinSetupFromUSB.log file, to attach it simply add it to a zip archive, or change extension to .txt.

WinSetupFromUSB says "No USB Disks detected or not properly formatted"
I have a Corsair Flash Voyager 64GB.
It was new out of the box and formatted 64GB FAT32 by Corsair.
So, I attempted to format it using the
HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool V2.0.6
but it says:
"Volume is too big."

Did you try using NTFS rather than FAT32? It's preferred for speed as well.
You may also try MulTiPartitionUSBstick folder and the relevant batch files within to install a filter driver, which will show USB stick to windows as USB hard disk, thus allowing partitioning and proper formatting from Disk Management, just like with ordinary hard disks. You need to set the first partition active.
This would work on 32 bit Windows only, XP is tested, no idea about 2003/Vista/7.

It seems to me like the right occasion to test the new kid on the block on a 64 Gb:
The alternative being installing a filter driver and using normal Disk Management.
Or, under Vista, using diskpart.
