I'm assuming when you formatted you went for the FAT32 file system. Is it possible that when doing this you got something wrong like made the 'cluster size' too large? I cannot think how this might've happened whilst formatting but it may be the cause of your problem. "Clusters cannot be 64 kilobytes (KB) or larger..." -click here - also includes issues with the Scandisk tool (but only with Win9x) - worth a read.
