Normally they come formatted in fat32 already. Have seen the problem you have happen on occasion.

Since you have not put any data on it yet go ahead and format it. That should get you going.

Are you attempting to format it through Computer Management? Does it even show in Computer Management?

Here is a little tool that has helped me in instances similar to yours.
