Formatting a USB Thumb Drive for use with MSEZ and CFEZ


To use a USB thumb drive to export data from MSEZ/CFEZ instruments to a CSV file the thumb drive needs to be properly formatted. Thumb drives must be formatted using FAT16, FAT32 is not supported.


To do this:

  1. Attach the drive to a PC
  2. Open Windows Explorer, and locate the thumb drive in the drive list
  3. Right-click on the thumb drive icon and select “Format…”
  4. In the Format dialog select FAT16 (or FAT) and leave all the other fields to defaults. Click on “Start” (or equivalent)
