I want to format my flash disk but am told'windows cannot format' , what can i use


On a Windows XP-based computer, you cannot format a Memory Stick removable media device by using the FAT32 file system because there is no option to for FAT32 in the Format Local Disk dialog box. The only available option in the File system list in the Format Local Disk dialog box is FAT


So that you can use NTFS option to your HDD and then format the removable media device

(1) Cannot connect by USB to or from Macintosh MacBook OS10.6.2. Not visible in Disk Utility nor Unix /Volumes. (2) USB stick works if not partitioned to GUID first, i.e., a new FAT-32 stick works but GUID...


1) Obviously you can connect SOME devices over USB, as specified in your statement #2. If the problem is wider than that stated in #2, please be more specific.
2) The behavior you describe is symptomatic of counterfeit USB sticks. Some low-cost counterfeits accept formatting to their advertised capacity, but there is really no memory there. When formatted with formats that require data at the end of the address space, these drives will fail.
3) This is an artifact of moving Macintosh files onto a PC format disk. If you don't want this to happen, ZIP the files before moving them to the USB stick.

Problem with corrupted files


Dont panic... Just insert the memory stick in to a card reader and donot try to open it. but make sure that your memory stick gets detected.Then you can use any of the file recovery softwares to recover the photographs with out formating.I generally use the free app "PC file recovery". In case your memory stick is not detected in the first place, then There is no other option other than formatting. But the recovery software can recover 90% of the photos even after formatting.
If this doesnt work, post back. I will explain in more detail.

Usb harddisk problem on LG 50PT81+ not compatibel XP


LG have created a solution that only allows you to backup to a hard disk in the format that they have created.
The hard disk can not then be read by a computer as they only recognize formats such as NTFS, FAT or FAT32: not LG´s format!!!

If you reformat the disk in FAT32 format then you can copy files to the hard disk and see your photos, or certain types of DIVX files and listen to music via your TV,......BUT...you can not save TV programs from the TV to the same hard disk UNLESS you allow the TV to reformat the hard disk to LG´s format ) in which case you will lose all the files you previously had on the hard disk.

In practice LG have created a backup solution that is of little use to most users particularly bearing in mind that the backup takes almost as long as the original programs and as long again to restore.

Most of LG´s products are very clever and have a tendency to be in advance of the market.

However on this occasion LG almost had a good idea but many users are going to feel tricked like I did,
