Formatting 16 Gb USB flash drive in Windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Will Windows 7 allow me to format a 16 Gb USB Sandisk Cruzer Flash Drive?

    All I seem to get is an error message to say that it can't do it and recommending me to change  read only files read/write.

    I get the impression that W7 doesn't actually 'see' the plugged in drive because the dialogue window indicates that it cannot determine the capacity of the flash drive.

    All very frustrating. Any assistance would be much appreciated...
