    I am trying to choose the allocation unit size when formatting a 1gb usb thumb drive, however the only available option is 'Default allocation size' and I was wondering why that is

    Question: why do you need to choose a size other than default?

    That aside, it may be that the flash drive doesn't support other cluster sizes, or that there's something weird about the drivers. Try updating your motherboard chipset drivers.

    I would ask do You try to format it with Windows internat formating method?
    If so throw it away right *now* and use some better software...
