I like many other have this question and can't believe no one has found a way around this.
I have a usb drive that is a UDF format and can not format it was given to me by my company and said i may do with it what i want after i installed the software on my pc.
I have read all the forums possible and cannot find a answer.
I have tried everything I could find on the net... Only going to paste a few stuff so you guys can have one more go at this.
