FAT32 formatting

flash newbie

Recommended Posts

I posted this question in a different area of this forum, but not too sure the people who know the answer will see it...


I purchased a 4GB Flash Voyager for backing up my QuickBooks 2006 files. Everything seemed to go according to plan, but the files won't open. Now I'm wondering if the file system is the problem. Since I'm using WinXP Pro, shouldn't the file system be NTFS to work properly?


Is there newer software out there for this flash drive that would allow formatting to NTFS? If so, where would I find it?


Appreciate any help you can offer.

FAT32 should be fine for a flash Drive, but if you want to try the format please use this syntax:

Please try to format the drive from a command prompt with this syntax:

Format (X:) /FS:FAT32 /U (X=the drive letter assigned to the Flash Voyager)

If you still have problems we can get it or them replaced, please use the On Line RMA Request Form and we will be happy to replace them or it.

/FS = File System



You might need to change the properties of the Drive to Non removable to change the File System, just change it back after.
