I've been using a Laser 256MB Flash drive (FAT) with a 98SE (FAT32) and a XP Pro (NTFS) box. I've been getting all sorts of mixed results, with 98 sometimes able to read/ run some files, other times nothing. I've fiddled with the formatting utility that came with the drive. Sometimes this fixed it for 98 (without erasing files???) But now I've got to desperate times, where nothing recognizes it. I've used "Disk Management" in the XP admin tools, but it won't allow me to format it - I don't think it can even "see" a partition ("Mark Partition as Active" and "Delete Partition..." both greyed out.
If there's any way to recover from this, I'd really appreciate the secret.
