Used the HP USB Flashdrive tool and it formated my Staple Relay 8 gig USB flashdrive when the windows xp or win 7 formating tool wouldn't. Thanks for the posting. I didn't get to save my info on the disc but I was able to make my 8 gig drive useable again. One thing for nubs if it says drive to big use the dropdown box and select FAT 32 then try and fromat the drive again. Here's the direct link to the tools download.
