File system error when trying to create Secure Erase USB flash drive

I am trying to format a 240 GB SanDisk SSD Plus.

 

I have a 128 GB SanDisk Extreme USB 3.0 flash drive.

 

I am trying to use SanDisk SSD Dashboard to set up bootable Secure Erase software on the USB flash drive, so I can format the SSD.

 

I have formatted the USB flash drive via. Windows 10 (FAT32) and Rufus (FAT32) but SanDisk SSD Dashboard keeps stating:

 

"The file system format on the USB drive is not supported. Please format your USB drive with FAT or FAT32 and retry."

 

Any ideas?
