Sentry Mode Flash Drive Format

hey everyone! Got my LR AWD M3 last week and absolutely love it.

Can anyone please walk me through on how to configure my sandisk 128gb flash drive for sentry mode? All of the YouTube videos I find are formatting to fat32, which isn’t available on my flash drive? Thanks!
There's nothing inherent with flash drives greater than 32GB that prevent them from being formatted as FAT32. The limitation is with the native Windows formatting tool. Look for a third-party app that will allow you to do so on Windows. Or get hold of someone with a Mac or Linux computer.
