    For user friendliness it might be good to include the restore boot image.
    I thought I damaged 2 USB sticks before I thought that something was going on and spent some time to look into fixing my issue.

    My thoughts were that the program shouldn't induce heart attack that the creator damaged my drive. (when it didn't, it just did something that windows can't normally handle).

    So could this be fixed if the creator had the restore boot sector option and a Notice (to new users) that you can restore your USB sticks full capacity by ?....

    If it helps I had to try several things outside of the forum before finding the diskpart solution. I didn't think it was the creators that had originally caused the problem.

    Windows doesn't know how to work with partitions on a USB stick.
    You can't just format it. It will only format the visible partition.
    The larger partition not accessible. Even in DiskManager. It is visible, but DiskManager is unable to do anything such as remove the partition.
    One must use DiskPart (which is not noob/commoner friendly)

    Is there another way that the USB-Creator could make a USB stick without partions in the first place? Could mounting eliminate the need to partition?

    Using DiskpartYou might overwrite any hard disk on the computer.
    If at some point you are not sure about the disk number, stop proceeding.

    • Make sure that the USB stick or SD card that you want to reset is unplugged.
    • Click on the Start button, and choose All Programs ▸ Accessories ▸ Command Prompt, to open the Command Prompt,More help on how to start the Command Prompt
    • Execute the diskpart command, to start Diskpart.
    • Execute the list disk command to obtain information about each disk in the computer.For example:

      Diskpart> list disk Disk ### Status Size Free Dyn Gpt -------- ---------- ------- ------- --- --- Disk 0 Online 80 GB 0 B

    • Plug the USB stick or SD card that you want to reset. Run the list disk command again.A new disk, which corresponds to that device, appears in the list.For example:

      Diskpart> list disk Disk ### Status Size Free Dyn Gpt -------- ---------- ------- ------- --- --- Disk 0 Online 80 GB 0 B Disk 1 Online 4 GB 0 B

      Make sure that its size corresponds to the size of the device that you want to reset. Note down the disk number assigned by Diskpart to the device.

    • To select the device, execute the following command: select disk=number. Replace number by the disk number of the device that you want to reset.
    • Execute the clean command to delete the partition table from the device.
    • Execute the convert mbr command to create a new partition table on the device.
    • Execute the create partition primary command to create a new primary partition on the device.

    Why does the the USB-SD Creator need to make a partition on the USB stick or SD card when run from windows.
    It doesn't appear that Windows is capable of working with partitions on these types of devices.

    To make the tool user friendly could the windows USB-SD Creator tool be programmed with the abillity to reclaim the USB stick or SD card for use in windows (i.e. unpartition for dummies)

    I have noticed that every video I play results in the Free Memory shrinking. Play a movie/tvshow from the library or from USB HD and just skip to 10 min in then end, go check free memory in the System Info and the amount drops.

    Eventually my PC crashes

    Full hardware specs (GPU is most important): Acer ES1-511-C35L with Mesa DRI Intel Bay Trail GPU and N3530 CPU, 4GB ram, 3TB usb3 HD on usb3 port
    The LibreELEC version you are running ('latest' is not a version number): Community build devel-20170410

    • In most cases a full debuglog: VJEV
    • Tell us the complete steps how to face the issue, so we can try to reproduce: mentioned above. Play a video i.e. 1080P Hevc 8bit skip to 10min, stop, check memory and repeat
    • Informations about the Kodi video and audio settings (maybe a screenshots from both): Monitor HDMI1 (4K Vizio TV in 1080P 60Hz and blank other screen with limited colours) Audio is ALSA:HDA Intel PCH,VIZ E55-E1 on HDMI with 2.0 channels optimized output.
    • If possible a mediainfo from that file/container: Various formats from x264 to x265

    Ok thanks HiassofT

    Will there be changes in 9.0? It's too bad that there wasn't a simple addon to setup program and configure a remote without having to make all the files and read dozens of web pages and a noob who is non-linux in nature could figure out. The tutorial above did the trick, but it's far from user friendly.

    I am still struggling to get my games to work. Some do some don't.
    I have 2 Wii games... able to get them to run, but can't figure out the wii remote things. with lots of digging was able to get them to sometimes connect automatically, just not work in the games.

    It's a work in progress. I am learning lots.

    I am using the community build with retroplayer integrated.

    Just run the update from the LibreElec addon?
    How do you want me to test?

    I have all my remotes currently working. Do you need me to test without the line?

    I ran the commands as asked as I currently have it setup.
    Here is what the results were --> LcGV

    I too am seeing the same symtoms as kobrawerde.
    Fast forward jumps like 5 minutes.
    Accessing SMB for videos results in loss of networks access.

    I moved my HD to the usb on the computer directly and now FF works correctly and videos don't stop causing loss of network access.

    I wouldn't know how to submit a log or what data you would need.

    The version is Community build (with EMU's) LibreELEC-Generic.x86_64-8.0-devel-20170410 (upgraded to from previous 20170409)

    Drag & drop to the update folder is hard? :P

    I believe there are ways to add custom update channels, but I'd need to research how to do that and probably change my hosting. Don't see much gain from doing so :)

    No problem, Just thinking of noobs like me. Allows to see that there is a new version without searching the forum.
    Your doing a great job.

    Still haven't figured out how to get wii remotes to work in the Wii emu

    Thanks this did work.
    I needed to add

    ir-keytable -a /storage/.config/rc_maps.cfg

    to the file to make it work after rebooting.
    I added in red things that might help others who are noob like me.

    Trying to setup my Infrared remote control on LE community deve-20170401 Generic.x86_64 (Acer Aspire ES1-511 laptop HTPC)
    I was able to see my codes (below).
    irrecord doesn't seem to create the Lircd.conf

    I don't know what to do. I have searched and tried many guides. Please help.
