FD FDISK and USB key (Users)

Hi,

someone know like create a FAT32 partition on a usb key using freedos fdisk.

Hi,

maybe a problem of the driver? My BIOS supports USB HDs and USB sticks. And I hadnt a problem.

(I cannot write more, because my desktop pc is far away from me until next year.)

Bye

So you are using Datalight ROM DOS w/ native DOS USB drivers to try to create a FAT32 partition on a USB flash drive? IIRC, the FreeDOS package of FDISK (as well as my disk #2) also includes SPFDISK (which works on SATA) and XFDISK since FD Fdisk isn't quite up to par (yet?). I haven't really messed with any of 'em much, though, to be honest.

The better working solution is probably (?) just to use GNU/Linux or MS Windows (or whatever w/ USB support) to do it for you instead of relying on imperfect, unofficial DOS USB drivers.
