I copied the files on the flash drives onto my work computer. I connected my flash drive to my eCS computer. It saw it as USB drive but showed nothing on the flash drive. I tried to reformat it but it indicates it is an invalid drive letter (?).  :'(

I have an USB DVD drive. I copied the some of the files from the flash drive to it. The eCS computer saw the drive but showed it as empty.   :'(

I copied some files onto a CD. I am glad to say the eCS computer not only saw the contents of the drive but I was able to copy files to the eCS computer.  ;D

To make a flash drive operable under OS/2 and other operating systems, you need to properly partition it, format in FAT32 and add LVM information on the partition.

This is easily doable using DFSee.

The bright part is that you'll have to do this only once, then you'll be able to use this flash drive across all your OS/2 and non-OS/2 computers.

I was able to upload DFSee onto my Acer Aspire One. I copied it to a CD and was copied it from there. I will give it a try. Thanks.  8)
