512Mb??

Do you mean a pen drive - if yes - don't even try to format it.It's required that you use ONLY the manufacturers format utility anyway - anything else might render the drive unuseable.

Yes it is a pen drive. Thanks for the advice I didn't know if I would be able to save files on it as my HD's are NTFS and the USB is FAT.

"my HD's are NTFS and the USB is FAT"

That won't make any difference. It will still work.

Thanks for clearing it all up.
