• Windows USB Creator does not / list all USB flash drives

    • Minor

    It's only related to the Windows Creator and not the Mac version as @xanderflix found out. Several methods have been tested by multipe users:

    • reformatting
    • renaming the volume
    • usb3 to usb2 adapter cable to force usb2 mode
    • the serial number should be readable as mentioned by @guybrush2012





    Not found by the creator:

    Sandisk USB 3.1 Ultra Fit


    I tested these two:

    I'm seeing the same issue. I bought this USB drive: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B077Y149DL and the Flash Creator does not list the device.


    I plugged the device into my unRAID server and rand `blkid` and got the following output:


    /dev/sdh1: LABEL="UNRAID" UUID="8EDA-XXXX" TYPE="vfat"


    So it appears the flash drive has a GUID.
