Well, I don't think we actually need to show our presumed professionality. :lol:

However there is NOT one reason in the world why the built in Windows utilities cannot Partition and format a 128 Gb hard disk, USB or not.

There is a known limit to 32 Gb size partitions for FAT32 under Windows 2K/XP:

Beside the little prog pointed to by ktp, there are at least:

And the newish, experimental, Partition Logic one:

You will need to give us more details on what you are trying to do, as your current request misses any meaningful detail needed to help you properly.

try new version of RMPrepUSb v2.0.730 - fixed fat32 format bug on large usb drives.

P.S. If you find a problem - please describe what the problem is - I only found the problem in RMPrepUSB when formatting a USb 100GB HDD as FAT32 - if you had told me about the problem earlier I could have fixed it earlier.
