Simply matter of loading the format tool from the sandisk website , just hunt around a bit you'll find it.

or you can simply do a right click format of the drive

fat16 or fat32 only , not NTFS

which may not remove the UDF reader CDROM Emulation files on first go. you might have to do it twice ... or keep windows from attempting to reload the sandisk software.

the format tool from their site will work best on first run.

then you can do right click format on it after that with no problem.

also make absolutely sure you have your USB ports turned on in the bios and that they have an IRQ , normaly IRQ 11 will be givin to the USB ports. sometimes we think they are enabled but check to make sure.

use the primary USB ports if possible , because sometimes the secondary ports get turned off by accident and we are left wondering why our flash drives are not working.

or if you are not trying to be a hardware monkey like me with a sick zionistic fedish obesssion who wants total control of all hardware , you can simply right click on any file thats on the drive and delete it , provided it's a user file.

and remember if it's not hebrew , it's a lie :-> shalom

Just plug it in to your computer.  After it loads and see's it as a mass storage device.  Right click on My Computer and click Explore.  Click the lettered drive on the left frame for Mass Storage or USB Drive and all the files will show up on the right frame.  Delete the ones you want.  Highlight all with mouse and click delete to remove them all.  Optionally you can Right Click on the drive letter and format.  I prefer to just use the delete key.

SOURCE: Erase Data?

If you goto My computer and click on the Appropriate Letter for your flash Drive you can then Right click on it and go to "FORMAT" and then from there click Ok or Next. This will erase all data on the flash drive. You can also physically open the drive in my computer and select everything by pressing CTRL and A at the same time and then pressing the DELETE key on your keyboard, either one works fine and will delete the data off of a flash drive. Hope my answer gets you closer to a solution. Please Help rate me if I helped you out or not I am new but a very good tech.

SOURCE: eraseing a sandisk 2 gb flash drive

To Erase everything on the drive you can format it. To do this, plug it in, then go to 'my computer' Right click on the drive, and select 'format'. BE AWARE, THIS WILL COMPLETELY ERASE EVERYTHING ON THE DISK! So make sure that there is nothing that you want to keep on there.

8gb flash drive holds less than 2gb

Try reformatting the flash drive. Copy all your important files somewhere, since reformatting the device would erase all saved data. Go to "My Computer", right click on the usb device, click "Format...", click "Start" on the window that pops-up, click "ok" and wait for the formatting to finish. This should erase all data on the device, including hidden files that might be taking the space up.

I can't write files to my kingston 2gb usb flash drive.


If you are getting a message that the disk is full, erase some of your existing files.

If there are no files on your flash drive, I'd suggest formatting your drive. If there are files, note that any existing files will be erased.

If your flash drive is drive "G" for example, enter "format g:" (no quotes).

Hope this helps.
