    Are you using KDE or Gnome?
    Also, is there any reason you are using 10.3 after such a long time?

    long time?
    10.3 is supported..
    and has been for _only_ 21 months..

    and remains stable, dependable and secure..

    Does not matter at all. You cannot format any disk as a normal user. These disks mostly contain a FAT32 file system already.

    You can format the disk using the Yast partitioner if you want it to have an other filesystem

    10.3 old? I manage some systems still running 9.0 Professional.

    Sorry, I must be going mad. For some reason I read 10.1, which I believe is no longer supported. Sorry for the offense!

    I also seem to remember doing exactly what has been described above in dolphin once, but that may have been on kubuntu, in which i belive it is possible to format attactchable media. Again, this could just be my stupid brain playing tricks on me!

    If you dont want to use the command line, i would definately reccomend using the YaST Partitioner, which is very featureful and quite easy to use.
