    Accidently left my 256MB jump drive in the usb port during a clean install and I think it wiped the drive and formated it in NTFS :o

    now double click gives me a please insert disk message
    properties 0 free space 0 used
    won't format

    it does still show up as lexar jumpdrive sport usb


    anyone know if I can fix this ?

    Have you ruled out the possibility that it's simply not reading the drive properly since you reinstalled? I mean there's NOTHING in the OS setup that will format a drive without your consent.
