  1. Hey, I just bought a 16gb thumb drive, and I can't format it as NTFS. Every time I try to format the thumb drive it usually says "format unable" or something like that. And I usually have to wait over an hour just to see that message, help? Also, I have Vista Premium, and I have the HP tx2500z if that helps.
