Cannot write image to USB "Error #5 occurred writing to disk at sector 0"
I get this error when tring to write the image to the USB Stick Error
Error #5 occurred writing to disk at sector 0
I have tried with two different sticks but no joy. And i've tried redownlioading the files , restarting the machine but no joy at all.
can anyone help. I'm in Sri Lanka at the moment and I would like to use this as a router rather than belkins or any other cheaper brands.
ok using lockdismount tool found on this site I manage to write the image. But it takes about 15 minutes and not 3-7 seconds to write it.
and then when I plug it to the HH and access 192.168.1.254 i can see the usb1 folder but I cannot see anything other than home folder inside it. and even that is empty. I'm doing something realy sily.
you don't say what OS you are running on your PC.
this should fix the problem:
if you have xp use fdisk to delete the existing partition(s) - obviously, make sure you are selecting the correct disk here!
if you have Vista or 7, use diskpart to clean the disk - ditto ditto
when you look in explorer, the stick should be blank as windows can't mount it but you should be able to write to it with diskimage.
