Nobody and nothing uses the FAT system, since windows 98 only FAT32 or NTFS is used, i can't understand why you need FAT?

    Shot in the dark, but there may be an option for fat, apologies if you tried this,
    go to my computer icon, right click, then click manage, then disk management; see if drive is listed, click on it then choose format.

Help How can I unblock my sandisk cruzer


Hi,
Dear Customer, Plz Flow this instruction i think solve you problem.
Reformat the drive:-
  • Right-click the SanDisk flash drive within "Computer" and select "Format..." Enter a name for the drive, select your desired format (FAT32 is typical for flash drives). Click "Start" to format the drive. This, unfortunately, will erase everything on the drive. Any data contained will be lost along with the password protection. Once reformatted, the drive will be fully accessible.

Sorry but you wont be able to put a file larger than 4gb due to file format limitation since you used fat32. only NTFS supports files larger than 4gb. if you want to use it with large files you need to format again using NTFS. hope that helps!

4GB pen stick cannot write when used space over 2GB


You formatted your pendrive with a FAT32 Filesystem instead of using NTFS.

Do the following. Backup the data currently on the drive, Right click on the drive, choose Format and under Filesystem, choose NTFS ... click ok... you will not be able to use all 4Gb of space on the drive.

Good Luck

I need to format the USB I have to a Fat the only options I have are Fat32 NFST and exFat


normally you would format to fat32 that will be compatable with most systems ..... exfat is used only for linux ... but linux can also use fat32 and NTFS .... microsoft can't read exfat without a special program ... you can use NTFS if you hve a very large USB drive ...but fat32 will be compatable with the most systems ...

SanDisk Cruzer Micro 4GB USB plugged it, light on, but shows an empty file in windows with capacity of 0bytes Also shows a CD drive (the one that U3 runs) which says nothing is in disk drive.


It is likely an issue with the filesystem. The FAT filesystem gets easily corrupted. If that's the case, reformatting it with FAT32 should help. But remember - reformatting erases all the data, so don't do it if you have anything important on the drive!
