  1. !!NEED HELP!! Please...
    i have a 512mb flash drive
    and when i was formatting it
    something went wrong
    and it got formatted as a floppy disk
    now, my flash drive can only hold 1.4mb
    is there anyway to make the flash drive
    change back to fat32 instead of a
    floppy FAT
    anyone????

    I've never heard of such a thing.

    If you're using Windows XP or 2000, you should be able to use Disk Manager to repartition and format the drive.
