What about using diskpart?
This is just a warning, nothing earth
shattering. I discovered after unwrapping a new 64 gb flash
drive for use with my nnls talking book player that windows 10
version 1709, all updates installed, only has the XFat, and
ntfs options available when formatting the drive. The digital
player can read neither of these file systems. I’ve submitted
feedback to ms asking for fat32 to be restored but who knows
if it will happen. This is a problem because unless the dp’s
firmware is updated, extremely unlikely, people who use
windows 10 won’t be able to format new flash drives or
reformat old ones without using another program, which I’m
sure exist. They won’t be able to do it out of the box unless
ms restores the functionality. This seems to only apply to
flash drives. External hard drives have only the ntfs option.
I’m posting hear because I’m not subscribed to the baard talk
list any longer. Sorry if it’s off topic, but I wanted to let
everyone know so others can jump on this or provide
workarounds if needed. Right now I have a 32 gb flash drive I
