Why I cannot format my FLASH card using Windows format utilities?

To activate the viewer, please click on its icon in the system taskbar near clock. Then, insert your card into the socket, right-click onto appeared drive letter and choose 'Format | Format FTL' menu item. After the format will be completed, your card will be available as removable disk for read and write files.
