Wow ...

Downloaded program but it would only detect drive. Error trying to format.

Now windows 7 gives me a pop up saying to format and it now has the correct size (7.45) run windows format and all good now...

So the hp program wouldnt do the format but did allow windows to see drive correctly....

For that i thank YOU...... is there a thank u button?
