    Does clicking on the drop-down box (the box with the down arrow beside it) give you anything aside from 16 MB for the capacity, and FAT for the file system?

    If not, you may have gotten a dud drive. If you bought it quite recently, I'd take it back to the store and ask for some help (assuming this is a computer place and not, say, the supermarket) and if nobody can figure it out, return it as defective and get a new one. You can also get in touch directly with Sandisk to see if they may have a solution, or can ship you a warranty replacement:
