  1. It took me a sleepless night to figure this one out and Google didn't help a bit!
    I'm not sure if anyone will ever find this answer but I felt I needed to contribute in case there was one person who could benefit:

    The answer is to changed the Partition ID to 0x0B FAT32. I'm not sure why it worked but it worked for me.
    This can be done using Partition Wizared Home Edition (Free)

    Good Luck!

  1. Get another one, or plug it into a computer and see if you can change it or something.

    But I just formated my USB drive and changed it to FAT32 and switching off quick format.
