There is more than one way to format a Hard Drive, but here is just one: With a Windows XP CD ROM, boot to the CD (You might have to change the "Boot Order" in your BIOS if you don't get the screen "Press any key to boot to this CD...." on cold boot/reboot with the CD in the CD tray). After booting to the CD, it will start checking your system and installing files and then eventually take you to a Installation/Partition screen, you'll be able to delete and re create partitions and Format your hard drive after re partitioning. Also choose "NTFS normal" and not "NTFS Quick" if you want a thorough formatting of your hard drive to occur.
Just add a post if you need any clarifications.
Good luck, an have fun!

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.

Sd card format software


Start up a computer with Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7. Insert the SD card into an external memory card reader or into the computer's built in card reader. If it the first time a SD card has been inserted into the computer, Windows will recognize the SD card and automatically install drivers to read the memory card.

Go to the computer view by clicking on the windows start menu icon in the bottom right corner of the computer. In Windows 7 and Vista click "Computer". In Windows XP click "My Computer"

Right click on the SD drive under the computer heading. A dialog box with different options for the drive will appear. Click on "Format" to bring up the formatting dialog box.

Select the type of formatting (also known as file system format). In Windows XP or Vista there are several choices including FAT, FAT 32, and NTFS. In Windows 7 there is an added choice called exFAT formatting. This is an improved FAT formatting type with improved meta data capabilities. Choose the formatting type, name if the drive if desired, check or uncheck the "quick format" option, and press the "Start" button. When the SD card format is complete Windows will provide a notification.

Good luck.

Blue screen appear while formating..


Could you not format your computer? Usually, when formatting with XP blue screen appears for a few minutes and then it continues formatting. But if it is not your problem, try formatting your system again with another OS.
