Assuming you have Windows XP or later, do the following:
1. Click on "Start"
2. Right-click on "My Computer"
3. Select "Manage"
4. Expand "Storage" if it isn't already and click on "Disk Management"
5. You will see a list of your disk drives. Each drive will have a graphic illustration of each partition or logical drive that it contains. You must first delete the partition or logical drive in order to reformat the drive. Make absolutely sure it is the drive you want to reformat! Once you delete a partition or logical drive, you can't go back!
6. Right click on the partition in the drive you want to format (F: in this case)
7. You will see either "delete logical drive" or "delete partition".
8. Delete all partition(s) and/or the logical drive. If there is more than one partition, you must remove them all. Click on "Yes" if you are asked whether you are sure.
9. When finished, there should be one unallocated partition shown. Right click on it and select "New Partition". Follow the directions and select "Primary Partition", "OK"
10. Select the full size displayed and "OK"
11. Assign the drive letter, presumably "F:" and "OK"
12. Select "NTFS" file system, and "OK".
13. The Windows operating system will begin formatting the drive. Depending on its size, it may take 1/2 hour or more to finish.
14. After formatting is finished, you can right-click again on the partition and set it as an active partition.
15. You're done! Exit out of the Disk Management menus and the drive should show up in Windows Explorer as drive F: (or whatever you selected). If not you may have to reboot.

I hope this helps. Good luck!

How to fix No Bootable Media Error Message


FAT (File Allocation Table) is one of the most widely used file systems used now-a-days with various versions of Windows operating systems and memory cards. Every logical partition contains a FAT that consists of file allocation information and the information of free allocation units that need to be assigned to files. Although the FAT file system is reliable, corruption still occurs due to various reasons. In such situations of FAT corruption, your system becomes unbootable, resulting into inaccessibility of data saved in FAT based hard drive. To access the data after FAT file system damage, an easy way is to restore the data from an updated backup. But, with inaccessibility of data backup or backup falling short to restore the required data, an ideal option left is to use an advanced FAT Data Recoveryapplication that can recover the lost data.

To illustrate the above scenario, consider a practical case the below error message pops up when you attempt to boot your system:

“No Bootable Media”

As the above error message appears at the time of booting the system, you wont be able to access the data saved in the hard drive.

Cause:

The above error message because the FAT file system has been corrupted. Few main causes for file system damage are improper system shutdown, human errors, and virus attack.

Resolution:

To isolate the above error message and to access the data after the above error message appears, you will need to follow the below steps:

Run CHKDSK utility to repair the FAT file system. If the problem persists, format the hard drive.

While the latter resolution resolves the above error message completely, it also deletes the data saved on your hard drive. In such cases, if the backup is not available, then you can only recover your formatted data by using an advanced third-party FAT Data Recovery software.

A FAT Partition Recovery utility thoroughly scans a FAT based hard drive and recovers almost all data, even after formatting. The data recovery utility can be downloaded from the Internet.

Stellar Phoenix Windows Data Recovery is an efficient FAT Partition Recovery tool that recover lost, deleted, and formatted data from both FAT (FAT12, FAT16, FAT32, VFAT) and NTFS (NTFS, and NTFS5 ) based hard drives. The detailed help manual attached with the tool allows even a new user to perform recovery easily without any technical knowledge. It supports Windows 7, Vista, XP, 2003, and 2000.

External hard drive cant format into ntfs but only exfat


The propriety NTFS file format is used by the Windows operating system to format internal as well as external hard drives. You can format an external hard drive with the NTFS format using the built-in program included with the Windows operating system. The procedure is straightforward and does not require any additional software. An NTFS-formatted external hard drive can then be used with any PC running a version of Windows that is later than Windows 3.

Plug the cable attached to the external hard drive into a USB port on the PC. Right-click on the "My Computer" icon on the desktop. Select "Manage" from the drop-down menu. Click on "Device Manager" in the left column of the window that appears. Click on the "+" icon next to "Disk drives" that is in the column to the right of "Device Manager." Right-click on the icon of the external hard drive. Select "Properties" from the pop-up window. Click the "Polices" tab at the top of the window that has replaced the pop-up window. Click the "Optimize for performance" button below "Policies." Click "OK" to close the window. Right-click on the icon of the external hard drive in the center column of the window that is still open. Select "Format" from the pop-up menu. Select "NTFS from the "File system" drop-down menu in the new window that appears. Click the "Start" button at the bottom of the window. Wait as a progress bar appears at the bottom of the window and fills in from left to right. Click the red "X" at the right corner of the window once the progress bar has completely filled in. format usb memory stick to ntfs http://www.online-tech-tips.com/computer-tips/format-usb-ntfs/

Can I unformat a Cruzer 4gb drive?


You can right click your USB device from the My Computer window, and you should be able to re-format it to a NTFS file type...If that does not work you will have to download another Free USB Formatter like

I can`t store in my 16gb transcend any movie over 4gb.it is telling to me that i don`t have any space.thank you for listening.i hope to give me a sollution.regards baslis


you have to format you flash drive using NTFS. but using this option makes your flash drive to wear out much faster..
NTFS is a journaling files system and, as such, reads and writes to files much more often than other file systems like FAT and FAT32. This is because disk transactions are logged separately on the disk as they occur.
To enable NTFS on your drive, right click My Computer and select Manage. Open the Device Manager and find your USB drive under the Disk Drives heading. Right click the drive and select Properties, then go to the Policies tab and select the "Optimize for performance" option and Click OK.
Once you do that, open up My Computer and right click on the flash drive and select Format. There you will see that you now have the option to format to NTFS in the File System dropdown box.

My SmartDisk 80 gb FireLite hard drive says it is full but it is empty. What could be the reason for this and how would I format it? I use a Macbook pro. I dont want to have to buy a new external...


You will receive an error message when copying a file larger than 4GB to the hard drive if the drive is formatted FAT32. The FAT32 file system has a file size limitation of 4GB. You may also receive an error when backing up to the hard drive using backup software. To correct this problem you will need to format the drive to NTFS. If you are using Windows ME or 98SE, you will not be able to use NTFS.
There are some products that do not support the NTFS files system or changing their file system. If you own a FlashTrax/FlashTrax XT/FotoChute/PhotoBank/USB FireLite XPress, you cannot change the format of the drive to NTFS. It must be kept as FAT32 in order to operate properly. If you are using SOHO NAS via ethernet, do not format it to NTFS. If you have any questions, please contact technical support before you format the drive.


Warning: Formatting a hard drive erases all data from the drive. Please backup any data prior to formatting the hard drive.
To format to NTFS, open My Computer.
1.Right-click on the Verbatim hard drive, left-click on Format.
2.Select NTFS as the File System.
3.Place a check in Quick Format.
4.Click Start.
Once the format completes, you will be able to copy files larger than 4GB to the hard drive.
