Hello,
I'm implementing USB mass storage device on LPC2148. My device is now detected but the properties show RAW data format and when i try to open or explore the drive i get error "Your device should be formatted" if i click on Yes it again gives error "The device cannot be formatted" . So i want to convert the data on my device to a format readable by Windows XP so which format i should use? From where to start? From where i can get code for it?
are such codes available? How they can be implemented? I don't want to use SD card.
Ya and which system would you suggest FAT or NTFS?
Thank you.

Unless there is something wrong with the device, or your USB drivers, you should be able to format it as FAT32.

Bare in mine that you will lose any data currently on the device, so if its important, back it up elsewhere.

thanks,but still i have not implemented any file system on my device.
my device memory capacity is of 16kb and it's a flash memory.
we have configured the device as USB mass storage device but not implemented in file system. Thus i want to ask is there need of file system or any thing else can be done?
and which file system i should go for 16 kb of memory?

16kb, as in KiloBytes?

No, and there would be no need to even use that device to be honets, what on earth could fit on that these days?

yes ours is the prototype thus it uses 16kb.i just want to ensure that can computer read data in raw format? or is it necessary to implement a file system? and what action should be taken when computer asks for formatting the drive?

Hello Friends,

Converting a raw partitioned space to a file system is necessary for an operating system, Windows in the case of the NTFS file system, to be able to access and manipulate the partitioned space. Partitioning allows for the operating system to read, write, enumerate and properly size hard drives for use within the system. Converting a raw partitioned space to NTFS is a simple procedure that any computer user can accomplish with a few mouse clicks.
Use following procedure:
1. connect USB drive to system.
2. go to device manager and select USB from Disk drives option.
3. Right click it and choose policies tab and set optimize for performance option.
4. close every thing and open command prompt
5. use format command: format "usbdrivename" /FS:FAT32 /Q /X

Thanks And Regards
Steven Arnold
