    Hi All,
    Last month i purchased the Freecom FHD-XS 60GB USB Pen Drive and have been using away at it with no problems until now, it was formatted as FAT32 so it can be used on most computers rather than NTFS. I was installing Lotus onto a friends PC when i noticed it was actually installing it on my USB drive instead of the C: drive so i tried to stop the installation. i was left with a folder called LOTUS which would not delete because it said it was corrupted, so what i did was copy all my important files onto my PC and then formatted the USB drive but it has formatted it as NTFS which means i can't use it on older machines now, i've deleted the partition under disk management and created a new primary partition and gave it a drive letter but every time it asks what format the drive should be NTFS is the only choice listed ??? Can anyone offer me any advice or help on this matter to return it to FAT32.

    Many Thanks
