Are you using KDE or Gnome?
Also, is there any reason you are using 10.3 after such a 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.
What heresy 10.3 old rotfl! 10.3 and 9.3 professional still happily runs here.
Sorry, I must be going mad. For some reason I read 10.1, which I believe is no longer supported. Sorry for the offense!
You can follow the following link to format your drive to any extension you want, Linux or Windows.
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.
Thanks, but from where can i start accessing it?
Why not use the terminal…easy.
Just one line command will do the format.
You can refer to my post above.
You can open yast partitioner from yast.
I myself recommend gparted as a graphical partition tool. If you prefer using the commandline, fdisk is the tool you need. Run (…) to understand the latter one.
$ man fdisk
