Where can I download the "HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool" (should be SP27213)?
I fouind lots of references to it in the forums, but no place to download it.
Can anybody please help?

from a google search.
Chris suggested the following:
I downloaded from there, and it gave me
a file named:
When I check properties/version, I get:
AVG found no virus.
I get a cksum of: 2044393 2074384
The version referenced by Rich is:
I am unable to find a web site to
download that version.
Do you think the 27608.exe is the latest?
Can you confirm cksum, and properties/version?

I was able to find and download SP27213
It shows a properties/version of:
22.214.171.1249 (same as SP27608.exe)
under properties/digital signatures I see
a time stamp of:
May 13, 2004
looking back at the 27608.exe I see a
time stamp of:
July 9, 2004
The download web site for SP27213 has
no history in WOT, making it suspicious.
The internal time stamps would seem to
indicate the 27608.exe is the latest version.
Any comments appreciated on how to the
latest "real" version.

On my Sony Vaio VGN-SZ120P (XP SP3 / with 1 Admin account only).
I launch (with Admin credentials) HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool (tried v.2.0.6 and v.2.1.8).
I can see any external HDD but no USB thumbdrives (the "Device" field is just greyed out if I insert any pendrive).
The same versions of HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool work perfectly on any other laptop (also running XP SP3) and I can see and format both external HDD and USB thumbdrives.
On my Vaio I cannot NTFS format thumbdrives (which I do pretty frequently) using the very convenient HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool...I hope somebody can think of a solution: I would be VERY grateful.

I had to spent lot of time in finding this utility from the hp site, however, all of the old links provided are invalid.. Following is the new version and link available from hp web site.. .Pl. do not download other files from "un reliable web sites" causing virus/malware spread
