out of memory error


Dear All,


I am getting "out of memory" error when i am trying to format 8GB pen drive in ntfs format .So, i added two swap partition 64MB (as my device has 32MB RAM)to increase mem.but swap space used is max 1000Kb ,and i could not get any solution for my problem.
I can format upto 1 GB.

Can any one please guide me to sort out the problem

With regards,

What 'device' are you talking about?? And as Web31337 asked, what version/distro of Linux? What command are you using to format it?

We can't "guide you" if you provide no details
