I just received my isostick today and was excited to try it out. I have a SanDisk 64GB Class 10 card, formatted as FAT32 (using Paragon Partition Manager). Copying files to and from it via the "flash drive" interface works fine. I was able to update to the latest firmware with no issues, and have used the "ISO Manager" software to easily modify the iso_filename.txt text file without issue. The problem I'm having is it NEVER mounts an image! I've let it sit for 10+ minutes, I've unplugged/replugged the device, I've tried multiple ISO files from multiple places on the drive (folders, root, etc). Nothing ever mounts, so of course I can't test anything else (booting, etc).
What might I be missing? I've scoured the forums looking for a n00b answer, but just didn't come across one. I suppose I could try reformatting the card and started over... but I've copied around 50GB of ISOs to it so I'd like to avoid spending that time again if possible. Any help is appreciated! Thanks.
::EDIT:: Quick update. I decided to bite the bullet and reformat the SD card. I used fat32format GUI without issue. I used ONLY the ISO Manager to set things up (let it download isosel.bin and create the config directory). I then used ISO Manager to copy a single ISO (XiaopanOS.iso), as well as load it. It created the iso_filename.txt file correctly... and still nothing. The optical drive that shows up with isostick is drive I: and always remains empty. I've waited 10+ minutes, I replugged the device, etc. I'm hopeful I'm missing something simple, but I don't know what. This isn't a complicated procedure. =)
OS: Windows 7 Pro x64 fully up to date.
::EDIT AGAIN:: I've now tried reformatting the device again, using a different block size and a different ISO (EaseUsDiskCopy.iso). I've also tried different systems... they install everything just fine and I can access the flash portion without issue. But the ISO never mounts. I'm fairly convinced I've got a lemon, but I'm looking for advise in case I'm just too dense to see something obvious. Thanks!
P.S. How's the exchange policy through your Amazon store?
