    Right. You essentially "zeroed" out the drive with the OCZ toolbox. You can format it to the 1024k length in windows so its properly aligned.

    Shh. Don't confuse him



    If running Vista/7 just format it with windows format tool. It automatically does offset. all auto settings will be fine

    XP does not and then you need to use diskpart to format it properly.

    K.I.S.S!!!!

    Sometimes on auto, though it shows aligned (green in CDM or w/e), I get some weird number that isnt 1024. So that is why I personally manually do it.
