I used 'HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool'  to do this

Also you can use Fdisk to partition it..

Thanks for your quick ressponse. I can do the FAt file system with the HP tool but I cannot find the option to create a CD file system in one of the partitions.

Challenge: The i-unit group was not satisfied with the audio quality during remote meetings. They were looking for a portable solution with excellent audio quality for use in their conference room but also at their client’s offices.
