my U3 drive shows up as 2 drives (1CD and 1USB), when I select the .exe on the CD it doesn't work (not even when I remove the driveletter) and when I select the one on the USB it works ok (even with driveletter)
so it works now, thanks again
To be totally honest with you, the U3 features are not really required to store or run programs off a flash stick. In fact, many people in the know, find the feature quite useless, as I do and avoid U3 altogether. It's more hype and not really worth while.
If I've ever bought a good size flash stick and it had U3 installed, I would format the stick before installing anything. Less hassles and peace of mind. You don't need all the other crap that comes with some sticks either, such as Google or Skype, etc.
A flash stick is merely for storing files or programs and all PCs and Notebooks/Laptops, for you ancient people, can boot into Windows, then you can safely run any programs or files stored on the flash drive(s).
I also run other O/S's from a flash stick, such as LINUX and still, don't need U3 or any other nonsense. Just set you BIOS to allow your PC to boot from the stick and everything will be peachy.
