What operating system are you using? most likely you can go into my computer and right click on the drive while it is attached to the computer and click on format. Fat32 will probably be an option. if that doesnt work try a program like www.winimage.com

When i put music on my pen drive it plays on my pc but not on my car stereo why ?


Chances are the music files are not in a format that your car stereo recognizes. Check the booklet that came with the stereo and look for acceptable file formats. (Something that says .mp3 or . something.). If it still doesn't work, the pen drive itself may need to be formatted for the car stereo to be able to recognize it. (Maybe FAT32 instead of NTSF). The information should be either in the book or on the manufacturers webiste.

Good luck!

How i format my 16gb data traveler


If your computer is XP, Vista or Windows 7, right click on the "My Computer" icon,
then left click on "Manage", on the left side list left click on :"Disk Management".
If your fash drive is pluged in and detected it will appear on the list of drives.
Look for the 16GB drive, then left click to have a list of option to perform on
the drive. Select "Format" and a pop-up window will appear for formatting options.
I recommend "Fat 32", as it is best for normal transport or backup option.

I have a maxtor one touch 4 1 TB and I used it for a PC w windows 7. Now I have an apple computer and want to format it so I can read both pc and mac


FAT 32 format can be accessed by both pc and mac. the drive should be already Fat 32 formatted, but still, the files stored from the mac will not be able to be read by windows and visa versa in most situations.

you will run into trouble if you have to fat 32 format it yourself, as windows will only format up to 32 gigs of it in fat 32- you will have to make multiple 32 gig partitions to use the entire drive, and would be unable to keep more than 32 gigs of info per backup or folder, bacause of all the seperate partitions.

Hard disk


Before formatting the drive, be sure to back up any data from the external hard drive that you want to keep. If you want to make your external hard drive bootable, make sure the "File System" option on the "Format" screen matches your operating system. For Windows XP, the file system should be NTFS, while for Windows 98, it would be Fat 32.
Step1 Attach the external hard drive to your computer with the supplied cables. Most modern external hard drives are attached via one of the USB ports on your computer. Older drives may be attached via either the serial port or the parallel (or printer) port.
Step2Click on "My Computer" to see if your computer recognizes that the drive has been installed. If the drive is not showing, reboot your computer and check again. Step3Right-click on the letter that corresponds to your external hard drivemag-glass_10x10.gif. This will most likely be the letter "E" or higher, as your primary drive will be "C" and your CD or DVD drive will be "D." Step4Click on "Format" from the option screen that is displayed. Step5Choose the options you want from the "Format" screen. In most cases, the first three options should be left as is. You can give the drive a volume name in the text box that is provided, if you desire. Step6Click on the "Start" button to begin the process. When the formatting is complete, the external hard drive will be ready for use.

Phillips 1TB HDD problem, playing movies hrough DVD player (USB)


My question would be are the movies in the right format. Just because they play on your computer does not mean they will play on you DVD.NTFS or FAT 32 would have no bearing on this. They are simply data per sector protocols and are related to magnetic storage devices.You may need the proper codec for you computer so it can make a DVD you player can play.

My PNY 4gb USB pen drive is now showing "This Drive Is Write Protected", after 14 months of trouble free use. I have tried the "Low Level Format" utility on PNY's product support web...


1. restart the computer in safe mode
2. attempt to format ( do not use the flash utilities to do this ) use windows.

I suspect that windows is preventing you from formating the drive.
thats why I'm recommending that you format the drive in safemode


Thank you for choosing FixYa!

I want to format my sandisk micro cruzer 4gb usb drive to fat but only get fat32 option


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

USB stick


If the files you have saved are in the format that the sewing machine will read and the sewing machine has a USB port to plug the memory stick into, it should work.

Your sewing machine manual may have instructions on how to import files.
