If you recall formatting a > 32GB mem stick, you probably did it with third party software.

Could be; also, I wonder if a previously full-formatted >32GB drive (from the OEM?) could be successfully quick-formatted by XP without destroying the factory formatting?

The site the HowToGeek site linked to, RidgeCrop, is inaccessible when I tried to click on the link. I had a friend who was uncontactable for some years. He used the demon.co.uk domain so the the entire site is gone now.

As best I recall, that used to be a pretty well-known domain. But not really a surprise it's dead, and not much demand for Windows XP fixes nowadays anyhow.
