How to format a USB flash drive larger than 32GB to FAT32 by using a free program called FAT32 Format on Windows 10.

By default, you won’t have an option to format a USB flash drive larger than 32GB to FAT 32, you will only have NTFS or exFAT as options in Windows 10.

But, some devices like Vizio TV’s, some other brands of televisions, some cars etc… require that your USB flash drive is formatted to FAT32.

So what do you do when you have a 128GB or 256GB flash drive that you were going to use for videos with a TV, or for mp3s with a car?

Well, you could use PowerShell in Windows 10, but there is a MUCH easier way!

Just use the FREE program FAT32 Format. (Make a donation to the developer if you can afford it)

In the program, simply select the proper drive.


When you format a drive, you ERASE EVERYTHING on that drive! So first, backup any files on the drive. And double check that you have selected the proper drive. If you select the WRONG drive, you WILL delete EVERYTHING on that drive – so, triple check it!

You can change the Allocation Size. Most people can just leave the setting alone. If you want to delve deeper into Allocation Size, give Google a search.

Change the name of the drive if you want, or leave it how it is.

Make sure ‘Quick Format’ is checked.

Click Start.

The process will only take a few seconds. Close the program when you are done.

Drag & Drop the video, music, or other files onto your newly formatted FAT32 drive.

And that’s it. Take the drive to your TV, car, or other device, and everything should work just fine.
