Hello. Here r my questions

1. I bought a 128Mb Sony MicroVault USB Flash Disk 2.0 and formatted it with an iformat.exe program that came in the CD along with the device only 2 discover that after the format, the size of the disk fell from 124Mb to 30.7Mb. I was rejected at the shop where I bought it and on mailing Sony (in South Africa), there wasn't any reply. I would like 2 know more about what might have really happened with the disk and if its possible 4 the device 2 b restored 2 its original state of 124Mb.

2. I have the following a system with the following info.
OS: win xp
ram size: 112Mb

I installed Media player 10.0 on the system but it seems to take a lot of system resources on running it (the computer usage is 100%). What should I do 2 ensure that I can use the program cos I later rolled back to Media player 9.0

Thanks to U all out there and HAVE A PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR.

I'd connect the USB device, then open Disk Management and see if you can format it there.

Good Morning omuyelijah, thanks for the feedback, yes the R/Manager has recovered an awful lot of flashdrives that were thought to be wasted now. Big relief eh!
It is one of those gems of programs that you never need until you need them!

Your second problem with Media Player 10 is not uncommon, it seems the "bells and whistles" need a lot resources.
No suggestions for that, sorry.
Cheers, qldit.
