USB becomes unusable after Media Wizard

Recommended Posts

Try the following:

Open an administrative command prompt


List Disk (determine which disk is your USB stick, probably disk 1 if you only have 1 physical hard drive)

Select Disk 1 (use the correct disk number here)

Detail Disk (ensure you have your USB drive selected)

Clean (this destroys all data)

Create partition primary


Format quick fs=ntfs

Assign letter e: (any available driver letter is fine)


Re-run the Media Wizard to create the bootable USB drive.

That seemed to do the trick. I am now off and away using my USB 3 drives now. Just for further information I have been using a Windows 8.1 host to make all of my media. I am not sure if that was having anything to do with the errors or not.
