a) What utility did you use to turn it into a boot disk


b) Is Windows reporting that the disk is only 48mb, or are you only able to copy 48mb of files to it?

I mention b) because I had to format a 16g USB stick (a Cruzer also, as it happens) as NTFS so that I could put maybe 8g of files on it. Thing is, there were gazillions of small files on an NTFS hard disk, but on the Fat32 disk, each file, even if only 1 or two bytes, took up, I forget, something like a minimum of 4 or 8k. So they wouldn't fit.

NTFS formatting took care of that.

Then recently tooth-marked my hiney ... it turns out that Mac OSX can read but not write to NTFS. I couldn't edit anything that was sitting on said USB stick. Or rather I could edit but not save.

Unless it's not.
In that case, it's something else.
