    My Sandisk Cruzer Micro suffer a bad format on a Windows machine I was trying to fix. I believe I ended up with a corrupt file system. Luckily I didn't have any data on it to begin with. Is there any way to format it again? I'd rather not have to deal with calling up Sandisk for a return. Disk Utility gives me a "bad file descriptor" error when I try to erase it.

    Hmm, go on another windows machine and go to the format stuff and just reformat it FAT32.

    You might also be able to do it in Disk Utility so long as the format isn't NTFS.

    I already tried that. Disk Management and My Computer just lock up.
