Two partitions on Usb Thumb Drive

Q: Two partitions on Usb Thumb Drive

I have two partitions set up on my usb thumb drive. On the first partition it is a version of Linux (Slax) that I use for emergency boots (the fs is Fat16). On the second, I have a standard Fat32 filesystem. But, when I plug in the drive while in windows, only the first partition shows up. I have made both the partitions bootable. Any help would be appreciated.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

I recently tried writing an ISO to my 32GB thumb drive. (Chrome OS) Trying to play around with it. I wanted to format the thumb drive back to the way it was but I can't seem to. I've tried everything from deleting all the partitions in Disk Management(Won't let me). I've also tried deleting the volume through the elevated command prompt. I'm not sure what to do at this point. Thanks for your help. (Sorry if this is in the wrong section of the forum but it seemed like the best fit). (I also did a quick search of the forum for this problem but couldn't come up with anything.)

A:Thumb Drive With Multiple Partitions

Hello Futilizer, and welcome to Eight Forums.

You might see if running the "clean" command on the USB flash drive will be able to wipe all partitions from the USB to leave it as unallocated space. Afterwards, you should be able to create a new partition on the USB.

Under XP Media Center
I have two internal HDs two CD drives, one ext. HD and Windows has assigned drive letters to all and all have been stable over the years the very weird thing , and I can't figure out why, is that for my USB thumb drive - which I always plug into the same USB port it changes letters after an extended period - say about 8 months, it will go from "G" to "I" and then back. It is bothersome only because I use the "Send To" command for many files. is there a way to stabilize this or is it just another XP annoyance I must put up with.

A:usb thumb drive

When you eject the USB flash drive do you click the Safely Remove Icon before pulling it out? If you don't, it will have a hard time connecting next time you put it in.
If the USB Flash Drive is not recognized when you put it in, go to Start/Run and type devmgmt.msc and press enter. In the Device Manager are there any devices with a Yellow Flag or under Universal Serial Bus Controllers is there an Unknown Device? If so, right click it and Uninstall it, then remove the Flash Drive and restart your computer. Put the Flash drive into a different USB port. If you don't want to restart, put the USB into a different USB port and in the Device Manager, Right click Any device and choose Scan For Hardware Changes. You should get New Hardware Found.

But why did it stop automatically recognize the thumbdrive and why is that warning constantly popping up. There is no virus..I scanned that. All devices appear to be working. Should I return the thumb drive and get a different brand/model? Or is there a simple fix? Also, I checked to update the driver but it said I already had the latest driver. Did something get corrupted? HELP!!!
 

A:PNY 8gb Thumb Drive

The most likely situation is that the thumb drive got a virus which was later removed by your antivirus or someone else's. In that case there will still be a file (probably a hidden and system file) called "Autorun.inf". If you delete that file the drive will be back to normal.

In case you don't know, to show hidden and system files go to tools>Folder options>view, check show hidden files and folders and uncheck hide protected Opperating system files.

Hi Everyone,

I need your opinions on a purchase I'm planning to make soon. I'm in a bit of a fork as to what I'm going to get actually.

A thumb drive would be more portable, so to speak rather than the portable HDD.

An HDD would have way more space, however.

I will mostly use this as a portable drive, bootable with Hiren's Boot CD.

The price difference between the two items, and the two items are as follows:

1. SanDisk? Cruzer? Blade? USB flash drive 16GB - Php 1,150 - Brand New

2. Seagate FreeAgent Go? 250GB - Php 2,000 - Used - Warranty until September 2013.

A:USB Thumb Drive vs Portable HDD

I guess the question I would have is what exactly do you intend to use it for? And just how much storage space do you require?
Thumb drives are very compact and easy to setup and use.

I use both. I really like my 2.5in external drives and I think I only paid like 29.99 on the bay (made in china of course) for the last one with 80g's of space, I use it to keep all my paid for programs on and the keys as well as virus removal programs and such.

I use my thumb drive to share programs and music and such with my Nephew since if he loses it it's cheaper for me to replace and he has tested that theory.

Yes, you need to use imagex to include the editions you want into a single install.wim.

Replace the normal install.wim with that.

The files were self executing set-up files for her printer (exe). When I plugged the thumb drive into her computer it wouldn't read it (Drive requires formating-dialogue box) When I plugged it back into the XP system, I got the same dialog box (Drive is not Formated),

What happened? Is there any way to salvage the one, almost 2, gigabytes of files on my thumb drive?

Hello IceToad, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Using one of the options in the tutorial below should be able to rename the USB drive for you. If one option fails, try another.

I have a Dell D810 laptop and also two 512 mb jump drives. As quick as I plug the jump in the cpu recognizes a flash drive has been inserted and then it gives me a PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA fault and won't do anything else except power off. I have tried these two jumps on various machines and they work fine, so I don't think it is in the jumps. I have Win XP SP2 on this machine. Any Idea??????/
