You can use the Linux system to format your flash drive without installing the Linux. All you have do is find a Linux based OS like Ubuntu (free download). Then follow these steps.

  1. Insert the Ubuntu cd
  2. Restart the machine
  3. Start using Ubuntu cd
  4. Try Ubuntu without installing (Then you can run the Ubuntu without installing)
  5. Format flash drive
  6. Shutdown.

You can use Ubuntu, kubuntu, edubuntu, fedora, or any other Linux OS.

You can first change the file system and then you will be able to perform the format task. To change the file system you need to select manage form the menu you will get by right clicking on my computer icon, then go to disk management tab and perform the task.
