How to reset USB Flash Media formatted as Floppy Tags: Flash Media Floppy Disk USB Flash Storage Last response: December 23, 2010 9:01 PM in Storage Share neilverma December 23, 2010 3:11:52 PM Hello All, I have a usb flash drive which I had previously formatted as a bootable floppy disk drive using an HP utility at the time. I had to do this to helpme with a BIOS update. When the drive is plugged in, windows recognises it as a floppy disk with a max of 1.44 MB. Is there any way of unformatting / restoring my media back to full capacity? I am running Windows 7. Thanks in advance for your help.
