I've just built a new server, on which I plan to install OpenSuSE Linux. To avoid installing items that would only ever be used once, I've built the machine with no optical drives, and planned to install SuSE off a memory stick as detailed here: http://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Create_a_Live_USB_stick_using_Windows
I bought a 32GB Kingston pen drive for the purpose (and general use afterwards), however while both my ageing Windows XP box at work, and my almost new Windows 7 PC at home, can see the memory stick fine in My Computer, SuSE Image Writer shows nothing in the drop-down box where the memory stick should show up - I've tried it on both computers, and on Win 7 both running it as my normal user and as Administrator.
The page has options for what to do if errors occur, but nothing about what to do if no stick shows up at all.
Anyone got any idea what might be wrong?
