Hey guys,

So I've got this USB a couple of days ago and everything was fine.
since today it doesnt work like it should.
It works fine on my mac but my on windows pc its says that the drive needs to be formated before I can use it, but when I want to reformat it It says its only 200mb instead of 16GB. Its just creates another partition on the drive?
anyone got an idea whats wrong? thanks

tl;dr drive works on mac does not work on windows

Well, I think your USB stick had on protected sex , and now suffered a really bad kind of disease called aids

You probably need to repartion the flash drive

I had this issue before, my solution was to zero-write the header, then reformat.

I dont understand why this problem still exists, you'd think it would have been a big enough deal over the last 15 years to adopt and universal standard, but I guess not.

There is a "universal" standard but MS refuses to support it. MS won't support any format that they didn't invent.

Same happens with me but i just replug it in and it works.
