How to format usb memory stick
Once the device is recognized by your computer, locate the icon for the drive and select it, right click and scroll down to the format option on the context menu. Be sure you don't format over a drive that has necessary files as formatting will erase all files on the drive. Choose the appropriate format for the system it will be used on.....Windows, Linux, Apple etc.... Often you will have other options, such as Quick Format (most appropriate) or Complete and Utterly Long Format (which - as you might infer - takes for freakin' ever!)
