Amstrad CPC 464 + ddi3 + USB error: Reading FAT... not found

Post by Dallas71 » Fri Apr 07, 2017 5:40 pm

Hi I hope someone can help me: I have just got a ddi3, but it doesn't like my usb-keys. I have formatted 3 different USB-keys on my mac, in a format called MS-DOS (FAT). I suppose most users here are on Windows. Is the solution to format the drive on a PC, and is there a specific format I should choose then?

@Dallas71

On the later Mac's after you Format the Stick, THEN you will have to run FIRST AID from within Disk Utility.
It then FIXES the Format information on the Stick, Don't ask why ( Must be new programmers at Apple ?? )

Try that

If it ain't Broke then PLEASE DONT fix it.
