    Hi.

    A friend of mine gave me a usb stick that has been formatted to FAT16(as disk utility says). The stick is 1GB.

    It shows up on my desktop but i can't see anything inside the stick... When i try to eject it,it doesn't let me cause it says that i must quit applications that i've opened....So i guess i need to format it to FAT32. I'm quite sure about that cause i'm totally clueless.

    How should i do that?

    Have you tried reformatting it in Disk Utility?

    Open Applications/utilities/disk utility

    The stick should show up. Highlight it, then chose to format it.
