Another Formatting USB Flash Drive Device to Fat32

I have read all the post in http://www.experts-exchange.com/Hardware/Q_20848064.html

And I have used the tool killdisk.exe to erase the FlashDisk,it could be erased but it couldn't be converted to FAT32,only to Fat & NTFS.

Follow the direction of LucF to use command prompt,and response me below.

G:\>format G: /FS:FAT32
Insert new disk for drive G:
and press ENTER when ready...
The type of the file system is FAT.
The new file system is FAT32.
Verifying 31M

Format cannot run because the volume is in use by another
process.  Format may run if this volume is dismounted first.
ALL OPENED HANDLES TO THIS VOLUME WOULD THEN BE INVALID.
Would you like to force a dismount on this volume? (Y/N) Y
Volume dismounted.  All opened handles to this volume are now invalid.
The volume is too small for FAT32.

there is no real difference between FAT and FAT32 regarding partitions smaller than 256MB both format use 4KB cluster.

"The volume is too small for FAT32."

I guess that's the answer, actually.
