data. Make sure that the media you are formatting does not

accessing data (such as during Save, Delete, Load and
Format operations) or is mounting the USB storage device
(shortly after the connection), do NOT unplug the USB
connector, do NOT remove the media from the device, and
do NOT turn the power off to either device. Doing so may
corrupt the data on either or both devices.
