    Know that i know:
    that you can do what this guy said which works or, you can back up your drive, then (i use mcafee shred36, comes with all mcafee products) earse your drive completey, not just delete all files on it. and when you insert the drive again try and open it and windows will prompt you to format it, and done.

    you could have skipped the erase part, and just formatted the disk, and saved a lot of time. The data is gone when you format. (unless you are paranoid about the police or RIAA)

    Also, it's FAT32, not FAT36 like in your title.
