I have a small flash drive that I reformatted to NTFS to carry programs I use to help others.
This is a simple tutorial
I used to do the reformat.
I am told however, a problem with formatting flash drives to use NTFS is this format also produces much more wear and tear on the flash drive and may make it wear out much faster.
I've been using this drive about seven months now on a weekly basis and have not yet experienced problems.
I don't know about changing over an MP3 player though.
The only easy day was yesterday.
