IIRC, right click on the drive when it's plugged in, click 'Format...', follow the onscreen instructions. Make sure it's formatted in NTFS, set allocation unit size to the maximum, and click start.

Update: Or do 'Restore device defaults'

FAT32 file format's maximum file size limit is 32GB. Make sure you're formatting to NTFS. Try clicking 'Restore to defaults'.
