USB Stick for back ups - Any particular specs.....??


Recommended Posts

Morning folks.

I was doing a bit of setting up last night and took a couple of USB sticks with me to load on the desk.  One worked i.e. the desk seen the contents, the other did not work i.e. no contents at all seen.

They are both Sandisks one 8GB the other 4GB and both formatted to FAT32.

The one that did work (which I have had no issue with since first use) was the 8GB stick.

Does anyone have any idea why the 4GB stick would not work. It is basically a back up for the other and contained a full copy of the 8GB stick........???

Good morning Mac,

In a word, no. There's nothing from your description that would indicate why ZerOS wouldn't be able to read/write to this drive.

If you format the 4GB drive, can ZerOS then read/write to it? If you wish to try, make a copy of all the files on the 4GB stick somewhere. Then plug the drive into a Windows PC, and in File Explorer right click on it, and choose Format..., then choose Start. Once complete, you can then transfer the files back onto the drive, and see whether the console can detect it.

If ZerOS still cannot read/write to it, please plug the drive into the console, and then tap Z -> System Information -> System Info. At the bottom of this screen is a "USB Devices..." section. Do you see a "Mass Storage" device listed, which will disappear upon unplugging the USB stick?

If you have any questions let me know.

Hi Ed, I reformatted the stick and it is now currently working fine.  A bit weird as I always have to USB drives both mirroring each other (just in case).  I have used this loads of times in the past. Hey ho....  at least it works now. Thanks for your help.

Glad to hear the USB drive is now compatible with the console. If you do come across this again, please let me know.
