Kingston memory stick problem
« on: November 25, 2015, 07:20:32 pm »
I have a couple of these Kingston memory sticks (16gb) and they work fine on eCS/os2. I just purchased another one and it works fine on Linux and Windoz but not on eCS/os2. Its formatted fat32 like my other sticks but DFSee says: Large Floppy Format - Fat32, First sector is a regular boot record (large floppy format) Large Floppy Format will not work on os/2 or eCS!
  This stick looks identical to my other sticks,  I guess they've changed how they prepare them now for sale. Is there any way I can make it work on eCS?
  Thanks for any advice.   klipp

From the dfsee menu:

scripts>make fat32 data (usb) stick.
Follow instructions from there.

The newest USB drivers (Hobbes) can handle the extra large floppy format without having to repartition.
