Re: Prepping a new Thumb Drive

Jim Stutsman

Usually the only prep needed is to plug the new drive into the machine BEFORE attempting to put anything on it. That will create the required folders for you. You can also use the "Format" operation in the Settings menu, but it does not do conventional formatting the way a PC does. It will not wipe everything off the drive first, but will only create any missing folders that it wants. In your case you may have pasted the files into the drive before the EmbF folder was created. So the machine did not "see" them. Put the drive back in your computer and you can simply drag the files into EmbF.
