Formatting a Flash Drive on Macintosh
Reference Number: AA-00241 Views: 6564 Last Updated: 2014-11-26 09:34

How do I format my Flash Drive in Mac OS X?

  

Your drive must be set up as a single public partition, since neither Windows Explorer nor the Macintosh OS will recognize a password protected partition.

 

To format the drive in Mac OS X:

 
     
  • Go to Finder
  •  
  • Open Applications
  •  
  • Find and open Utilities
  •  
  • Double click on Disk Utilities
  •  
  • In the upper left window highlight the line "__MB ___ USB Flash"
  •  
  • Click on Erase in the tool bar at the top of the window
  •  
  • Specify the format and enter a volume name
  •  
  • Click on Erase in the lower right position on the screen
  •
