    Hi,

    A few months ago someone here posted a format string that makes 4 GB SD cards run much faster. It worked extremely well.

    Format /FS:FAT32 /A:32k DL: (DL stands for drive letter)

    I was wondering if this would also work for a 2 GB USB thumb-drive? My 1 GB thumb-drive is twice as fast the the new 2GB one I purchased the other day, and I was looking for a way to make it runs as fast or faster than my 1 GB unit.

    Thanks,

    Dawn

    That string should work fine for your thumbdrive. All its doing is telling Windows to format the selected drive as FAT32 with 32k clusters.

    Instead of what? (The normal is smaller or larger?)

    No go on the format; it wouldn't work for some reason.

    I enter the command (in a DOS window) and the system says: "insert new disk for drive I, and press enter when ready." I hit enter and the system proceeds to verify the disk. Then the DOS window closes and all the files are still on the drive.

    I tried running the command with the USB flash drive not connected at first, but that didn't work either.

    Any ideas???
