You can also use HP's Flash Drive Utility. It's really easy.

Thanks, worked perfectly on my 8GB usb.

I put in the numbers (0B,00,0,1,1,487,254,63,7847873) but then I did 7847873 * 2 = 31391492 and made the last number that because it was an 8gb usb. Then i just unplugged and replugged my usb to get the formatting prompt. and formatted

Just use XP's "disk management" to repartition the drive.
It's that simple.

I am having the same problem. I have a 16GB USB as well. I reformatted it using an online recovery program and it shrunk the size of the USB from 16GB to less then 2GB.

I followed the exact steps enumerated above. After I enter the numbers into the partition table I exit the program, however my USB is still 2GB. Even after I replug it in and reformat it it is still the same size. Does anyone have a suggestion?

My camera uses FAT files, but format only up to to 2 GB and I have a 8GB card so I thought I try om\n my PC, which formatted it FAT32 which is unreadable on the older camera However the PC does format (FAT32 format that is to just under 8 GB)

So how do i format a compact flash for fat format in vista 32 with the only apatarant option is fat32

By the way partition table editor 32(PTEDIT32.EXE) apparently is unavailable on the net

This worked for my 16gb flash drive that was showing up as 200mb.

I used these numbers:
0B,00,0,1,1,487,254,63,31391492

I got the last number by multiplying (7847873 * 4)


Thanks!

Great thread, really helped me with a 4GB flash drive (not Kingston) that would only format to 200Mb in Windows. For info, it appears that you must run PTEDIT in Compatibility Mode when using Windows 7 (I have 64-bit), but setting the compatibility option to 'Windows XP SP3' works fine.

MOST IMPORTANT - the string from Hitman above is missing a digit! It should read:

0B,00,0,1,1,487,254,63,0,7847873
and then all other lines to zero.

This really works! I can't believe this is the only thread I've found where this nightmare scenario is discussed!

Thanks guys, I had the same problem with a Kingston Datatraveler 4GB, formatting would show 200mb in windows. PT Edit solved my problem!

If you have the icon to log to privacy zone, open it then there is a option to format and give the capacity of 2 zones again.

if you haven't download the secure traveler softwere again from Internet and install in to your pen drive and follow the above instructions.
