    I have a sandisk I was using for my mac, however, it doesn't load up on the windows side. How do I format the USB within windows to run on windows? Thanks

    Open "My Computer" and find the drive, probably E:\, right click on it and hit format. Make sure you use FAT32 and not NTFS. :D

    If it does not show up in "My Computer" then you need to go to "Control Panel" -> "Administrative Tools" -> "Computer Management" -> "Disk Management" and find the drive, right click on it and hit format.

    In OS X I'd just open Disk Utility and the rest is self explanatory. :p

    Stupid Windows! :D
