How do I format a 64GB flash drive to FAT32?

I bought a 64GB Bolt Patriot USB Flash Drive for my car Stereo (Pioneer DEH-P4200UB).  But, it won't play it. I tried formatting it to exFAT with NO success.  Is there any way I can format it to FAT32 and have the car unit recognize it.  I have Vista 32 SP2.  My wife has XP 32 SP3.

In Windows, if you right click on the flash drive, there should be a option to "format" it. Select format and select FAT32 option and go ahead with the format. You can "quick format" the flash drive or you can do a regular format.

Hi Jeremy,

I've done this with NO success.

Hackpin,

I'm moving from denial into acceptance.
