I recently purchased the device listed below and when I ried to use I received a message that it was either not formatted or formatted for a Macintosh. How do I format it for use with my Dell PC?


Hi there,

Your usb stick could be formatted in either 2 ways:

1) If you go into "my computer" or "computer" (depending on if you are using XP or Vista/7) and you see your usb stick on that list, you can right click on it and select "format". You can just accept the defaults it gives you and hit ok and it will format it to be used on your computer. If it doesn't show up in "my computer" then there is another thing you can try:

2) If you right click on "my computer" or "computer" there will be a menu that pops up, select "manage" from this list. Once a new windows opens up, on the right hand side you will see "disk management". Select this. You will now see a new list of all the hard drives/usb drives on your system. You can right click on your usb stick and hit "format" in the same way as 1.

DISCLAIMER: Make sure that you select your usb stick from these lists, and not your computers hard drive. If you accidentally format the hard drive you will lose everything on your computer.

Hope this helps and if you need any more help just leave a comment here and I will get back to you.

How do i format the usb stick so i can use it?


With the computer on and you logged in.
  • Plug in the flash drive and open Computer/My Computer
  • The flash drive should appear
  • Right Click it and select format. Leave the defaults and give it a volume name if you want. After it formats it's ready to go.
Comment back if you need more help.

Hello Dear

#1
Insert your ( memory card , flash disk , cellphone , .... ) into your computer.
#2
Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
#3
Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
#4
In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
#5
Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
#6
Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

Cruzer micro 4gb will not format. Also, PC will not reveal contents.


Sometimes when a flash memory stick fails because it was not removed from the USB port properly. If the device is removed by just pulling it out of the USB port, it can cause the flash device to fail, you must click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon on the Task Bar and select the device you wish to remove and only do so when instructed to do so.

When the flash memory device appears to malfunction it maybe possible to restore it by reformatting it. Insert the flash drive into the USB port then Click on Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Disk Management.
Then right click on Disk 1 removable drive and click Format. After the flash drive has been formatted it will indicate that it is Healthy.

You need to format the external drive. Format the drive as primary drive and in FAT32. (FAT32 will allow data to be exchanged between MACs and PCs).
Insert the external hard drive into the USB port then Click on Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Disk Management.
Then right click on Disk 1 removable drive and click Format. After the flash drive has been formatted it will indicate that it is Health

I have a 4gb sandisk micro sdhc i took it out of a motorola g6 phone and removed the media then formatted it with my computer then put it in a nokia 6085 and it says its not formatted then put it back in...


How long did you use it in the g6? If it wasn't for long I would say it sounds like you got either a bad stick or a fake stick. Fake sticks are easily passed as the real thing. They even come in the perfect oem packages. Will your Nokia still recognize it? Why didn't your Nokia offer to format it for you I wonder? Go to the http://support.microsoft.com/kb/923293 and apply the XP hotfix if you are indeed running XP. Hope that helps.
