If you are running Vista I believe that it will not see FAT formatted
drives. If I am correct they must be NTFS.
Does this help?

Incorrect.

>If I am correct they must be NTFS.


Not correct.

Vista will not install on a FAT16 or FAT32 drive, but will read it
just fine.

That would rule out most usb sticks and even many preformatted (fat32) usb
disks.
Of course, vista will not offer formatting fat32 for a install, instead just
silently use ntfs - but data drives can still be fat(32).
