How to reset USB Flash Media formatted as Floppy

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.

Best regards
Neil

  1. have you tried using the Disk Manager in Windows?

    if it is larger then 4GB use FAT32 with 32 bit sectors.
  2. Just right-click on the drive in your explorer window (the old "My Computer") and select "Format". You can do a quick format as emerald suggested with FAT32.
