    Use OSX to reformat FAT32?
    I have a dinky USB thumb-drive MP3 player which needs to be reformatted to FAT32 using Windows... but I don't have a PC. Is there any way to do this under OSX?

    Cheers, Lee

    Yep, with Disk Utility. I don't remember exactly how it's called (PC-format or MS-DOS format) but it will definitely format a disk (or USB-stick) with FAT32.
