    Can anyone clue me in as to how to go about reformatting my thumb drive? I deleted everything in it, but I still only have 15mB of available space out of 128mB. I'm guessing there's still some crap from when I was using on my PC leftover on this thing. A little help?

    Mine has a folder that is labeled .Trash and when you delete things on the thumb drive from a mac or w.e.. it goes in there! So technically. its not deleted, you might want to check that out..

    Just trying to help out... Not sure if that's the problem, but that was the issue with mine..
