USB Flash Drive formated wrong
Hi and thanks for looking at my problem!
I have a generic 8Gb flash drive that I was trying to make bootable using the HP utility cp006049.exe (which can be found at HP.com) and some other utilities.
During my attempts the drive has now become formatted to 4Gb with an unused 4Gb dead zone.
I have tried the Microsoft USB recovery utility, Disk Manager in windows XP, FDisk in Win98 and formating the drive through both operating system's explorer window and I have yet to be able to reclaim the missing 4Gb. Partition Magic 8 did not seem to recognize flash drives. The drive works I am just using it at half capacity.
