USB Sandisk not recognised

  • Hello guys

    I'm new to the forums so hello.

    I have a sandisk 32gb usb stick that I used to have my openelec setup on that I have formatted to use a s a fresh install of libre elec.

    The drive seems to be recognised as a hdd not a removable device and therefore the usb creator tool isn't picking the device up.

    Is there a manual way to create the usb stick like openelec or is there a way to make the usb tool recognise the device?

    Much appreciated for any help.


  • You can download appropriate image and then try writing image to your stick with program Win32DiskImager or Rufus.

    In Creator on USB types are shown to protect user to accidently wipe hard disk.
