Now you don't have to worry about that as there is such a third-party formatting utility - HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool, which is right designed to take PC users' stress.
Note: do not format the device if you're unsure what you are doing. Most memory card errors can be fixed without formatting the device. See this article for steps on how to resolve it first.
It is a Windows-based utility freeware which has been designed for the HP Drive Key or DiskOnKey USB 2.0 devices. Installing the freeware does not represent a problem whatsoever, since it is very compact (only 96 kB). It runs smoothly and we have not encountered any issues.
The only difference between the HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool and the regular format tool found in Windows is the fact that this freeware allows you to select USB drives, while the Windows version is does not have this option. By the way, it works to format problematic memory card as well.
Moreover, the Windows format tool does not offer a NTFS volume label for format, while this tool can, and the freeware allows you to create a FAT32 volume which is bigger than 32 GB. Another awesome feature about this format tool is that you can rename all your USB flash drives in any way you want. The program supports all FAT, FAT32, or NTFS partition types.
