When I plug my smartdisk firelite USBFLB40C into the usb port it says it needs to be formated. What is the problem?


If it is new and has not come pre formatted then you need to format it to match the system as it still could be in RAW state, but I would expect usb devices to be preformatted. (not always the case though) A bit of history:- FAT32 recognised by all
