    Great. Glad the fix is working for you. We'll keep the drive as a test device for future fixes/changes to imageUSB.

      I have dozens of each Kingston G1, G2, Slider and G3 (Rubber) drives and the G2's have easily been them most troublesome drives I've ever had. Many of them would never even format correctly for booting. Out of 24 of them, I think I have 2 left in production.

          The error being reported is that imageUSB is failing to read from a specified address (0x65A00000) on the USB drive.

          Have you tried creating the image again? Is the error reproducible (and at the same offset)?

          You can also try to open the UFD with a raw disk viewer (e.g. OSForensics) and navigate to that position to verify the contents can be read.

            Yes I've tried several times. It seems to keep moving to another address. This last attemp reads "Failed to read from UFD at offset 44671434752 (0x66a00000)".

            Right before this error, I hear the Windows sound for disconnecting a removable device. And then it is re-detected as a Unknown Device. I have to remove it and re-insert it, then it's fine again.

            I was able to run WinZip to make a copy of all the data on the drive (System/Hidden incl). With no errors.

              Do you have another flash drive to test with. Could be a hardware fault (or a fake USB drive).
              (if it was a software bug, it is much more likely to always fail at the same offset).

                Unfortunately no, not of the same brand model. Seems to work fine on all my SanDisk drives. It was sent to me preloaded for a project, and I wanted to make a complete backup of it before I modified it.

                  If it disconnects, it might also be a physical problem with the electrical connection of the drive.
                  You could try it on another PC or a different USB port.

                      When writing to a drive, the Failed to open drive error is typically because the destination drive is in use (e.g. another process is holding a file open). imageUSB requests exclusive access to the drive and if another process has any open handles to the drive or it's contents, then it will likely fail with that error.

                      Can you run imageUSB with the debug logging enabled and post/send the log? Start the program with -d command line parameter or create a shortcut to the program end edit the target field with -d. This should provide more details on the exact failure with opening the drive.
