I have a USB 3 flash drive that Windows loves to hate. Most of the time I can't even view it. Sometimes I can get it to work by scanning for hardware changes but most of the time nothing. Sometimes I can get the driver and it works fine but when I shutdown &*%* Windows won't keep the driver file! This is such a PITA because I'm not even sure where I get the driver from officially or how to get it to detect the drive and search for the driver. It works sometimes and then Windows just loses the driver on reboot. This is so frustrating - I'm trying to get my OS to boot off the flash drive but most 1:1 software doesn't even recognize the drive as a HDD, when it's detected and the driver is loaded.
How can I solve this?
