I have a Cruzer 2GB which I have removed U3 from and successfuly made bootable using various utilities (HP’s USB Disk Storage, WinToFlash, etc)\
I got NO problem formatting this thing and booting off of it… This is the debacle thats causing me to become nigh violent:
I go to rapidly load about 1/2 GB data onto this thing in a controlled fashion and 1/2way thru you hear the famous Win XP “Kerrr-PLUNK” which tells you the drive has been disconnected. The LED flashes in succession x3 <pause> flashes x3 <pause> etc.
I then must physically unplug the drive and reconnect it to get it recognized again. I have tried copying my data through a program and even piecemeal. I have adjusted the properties on the Cruzer to use cahce and force me to click “Remove Hardware Safely” etc.
I need this thing to become a legal backup of Windows XP SP2 so I can install onto laptops without CD drives. I have been on this for 3+ days, and fear for the local community if I find no relief. Thanks for your time/input.
