Again, you are sure this flash drive is known good? As I mentioned I did the whole thing using your link and a $5.00 Kingston 2 GB drive I got out of a bin at Wal-Mart.

I contacted Super Talent tech support and they told me to RMA it. I have a question Ron. You said you followed my link, when you ran fixu8.bat did you use it to format the drive or did you say no? I said no because I figured I didn't need to since I had already formatted it with the HP software. Maybe that's what screwed it up?

During my experiments I did say YES but only once and bad move on that. Just say No! :lol: They don't mention that.

The other quirk was using the HP tool to format. Originally I chose FAT and it didn't work. Then I chose FAT 32 and it was worse. Go figure? Finally I did it again and chose FAT and things worked. Took me about two attempts using the same method but the little thing works just fine.

Remember it is limited as in you can't make changes but it works quite well. There were links for the more complex methods in this thread.

I'll give you 10:1 that the pen drive is bad. Hope you get things going with a new drive. Let us know.

Ron
