    Hey, first of all i'd like to say that i'm new to the forums.

    Second of all, a while back I formatted my flash drive to a "Mac OSX Extended" in Disk Utility, only now I can't use it with anything other than my mac, such as my xbox or PS3. Any help on how to format it so it can use such devices would be appreciated. Thanks!

    MS-DOS (FAT32) is the correct format.

    Via Disk Utility. Doesn't the guide you quoted help in some way?
    Just select the USB flash memory thumb drive in Disk Utility and select "MS-DOS" as format under the ERASE tab.
