    Hmm, A. Was there a lot of shit on it? And B. Was it a full format? If so, I wouldn't doubt it. Seems a little long, but oh well.

    A format should take less thatn 5 minutes. Especially the FAT32 file system. You must be manually clearing every sector, which you don't need to be doing.

    O-well, midaswell wait for it to finish now...



    There are two types of tragedies in life. One is not getting what you want, the other is getting it.

    It's probably because you're not using quick format.

    I did Quick Format but it didn't have the option of changing it to FAT32, only exFat and NTFS. Thats why I had to open up the Command Prompt
    Oh hai der.

    If you don't use quick format, expect it to take a ton of time.
