Hello,

Try this 1

FS stands for the "File System"(FAT32 or NTFS)

If your want to format your drive from the command prompt specifying the file

system then enter the follow command in the command prompt

Here I assume your drive letter as G

format /FS:FAT32 G: ---> Press Enter.

Good Luck

Hello,
Try this 1
Insert your pen drive and follow the instructions
1) Click on Start --> Run --> Type diskmgmt.msc and press Enter. "Disk Management" will be opened.
2) Right-click on your "Pen drive" Partition and Select "Format" --> Make sure that "File System" is FAT32 --> Check the check box "Quick Format" --> Click on OK.
If the problem still exists then check if you are able to create a partition. Right-click on your pen drive partition --> Select Partition and follow the instructions. Then again follow the step 2
Good Luck
