DSL killed my flash drive!!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Alright, not technically MY flash drive, but a friend of mine's flash drive.

He decided it would be awesome to put Damn Small Linux on his 1gb flash drive. The problem is, when we eventually deleted the operating system all that was left on the flash drive was 50mb!!! The approx. size of DSL.

My question to you is how to we repartition the flash drive so that we can use the full 1 gig once again?

We tried reformatting using Windows. It deleted DSL from it, but instead of saying there was GB left, it said there was only 50MB capacity...I have never heard of Partition Magic, but we will try it.

edit: Partition magic didn't detect the flash drive. Are there any other options?
