my ISOSTICK will semi-randomly drop into emergency recovery mode, usually associated with having write enabled, but not always. Restoring firmware a few times from the isostick updater will bring it back.
It's a bit more reliable if it only sees Windows machines, it really hates Macs. It's been like this since day 1, in fact it spent a couple of years sitting in my drawer of "I'll get to it when I have time" because of this.
I've had this with multiple laptops, multiple OSen. It's had the same SanDisk 32GB Class 4 MicroSDHC card in it the whole time.
What information can I gather to help troubleshoot this?
