I have a 16 gig mem stick that I want to format in NTSF, when i use my vista system it says unable to complete format when it gets to around 70% done, my XP system only shows fat 32.

got right to the end and then aftera about 30 seconds it said format failed, then it shows the stick as being unformatted so had to reformat as fat 32

Is there a limit to the size a flash drive can be before it causes problems on some systems, like can happen with high density memory cards etc.
Just wondered !
