View Full Version : Daemon Tools 4.03 stops U3 flash stick from working

Hi,

I got myself a Sandisk Cruzer 2GB U3 stick and wanted to use it on a laptop with 32-bit Win XP and DT 4.03 installed. The machine recognises the stick and creates a drive for the usb memory part, but then takes several minutes to create the cd-drive letter for the u3 part of the stick. Trying to access the cd-u3 part, windows waits for 1-2 minutes and then responds with a "disc can not be read. It is damaged or uses an unreadable format". I tried on 5 machines, the 3 with DT showed this behaviour while the 2 without DT allowed me to use the U3 part.
Any ideas? Regular USB sticks work just fine.

Thanks,
Marcus

Try to change the drive letter to a letter that is far away for the one of the usb-drive. E.g. Windows gives the USB-Stick the letter K, then you change the letter from the DT-Drive to Y. Got it?
It may help.

Hi,

thanks for the hint but DT already use drive letter V (for Virtual) on all of my machines. I tried the opposite and have set it to the lowest possible drive letter, but that did not help as well.

Yours,
Marcus
