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

My flash disk does not format what is the problem? i put the flash in the windows xp system port it becomes recognised by the system i try to open it ,it tells me the disk is not formated do you want to...


Your flash disk has been infected by virus that is why you are unable to open the flash drive. The best thing you can do is to download a good antivirus such as MacaFee or Avira or scan the flash drive for virus.

An alternative thing you can do is to insert your flash drive into a linux operated pc such as Fedora, Ubuntu, Open Susie or Redhat and then delete all the files in the Flash drive and format it

I want to format it


Plug your flash disk to the usb port of your computer. Wait for the system to detect it. Now go to windows explorer by right clicking the windows start button on your computer and choose Explore. Under My Computer, look for the drive letter associated to your flash disk (this could be drive E or F). Right click on the drive and choose Format >> Quick Format.

Hope this helps.

It seems that the card is bad. Try to format the card on a different machine to rule out your Windows formatter.

Million thanks for the one who solves this for me


Hi Sweet_Rascal,

If I understand you right, all you want to do is to successfully complete the format of a 4Gb Jet Flash/Transcend Flash Drive. You were unable to complete it using the Windows built-in format function. Further you can not access, read from or write to the said flash drive.

May I suggest you to use HP Drive Key Boot Utility instead of the Windows built-in format command.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
