Can someone do me a quick favour? If any of you have UBCD set-up on a USB stick, could you possibly boot the device and type the following in the command prompt:

Code:
drd t: -$
errlev


Assuming the USB drive is set to drive letter "T", it should report "0" or "1" (I need to be sure before releasing the next FreeDOS update).

Thanks

@as702:

Dunno whether anyone has PM you on this. I am away on a project this week, but I will be back on Wednesday and will be able to give you an answer once I am back home.

Predictably, no.

My usb stick is on C: ==> output: 0
Code:
drd c: -$
errlev

For:
Code:
drd t: -$
errlev

it dislpays 100 (no cd drive).

If you start it form a menu with ubcdcmd=some_program_name, it won't launch the program (can't find the usb drive).

When I do the following, it works:
Code:
set cddrv c:
ubcd

I am not sure where you would like for me to type this cmd line at? cmd in windows? boot line? within memdisk? Could you clarify?

Boot a program that uses the freedos image. It won't boot correctly. You will see Q:\.
Type first drd to see which drive letters are currently assigned.
Then type vc and see which drive letter corresponds with your thumb drive.
Then run (replace t: with the drive letter of your thumb drive):
drd t: -$
errlev

I had that same exact problem, but I got it corrected. Mine correctly boots into the specified cmd or program. I will run this command however. Thanks.

Just in case anyone is wondering, I got freedos to work on my usb stick after recieving the same strange problem that icecube described to me. I thought it was strange that my usb stick wouldn't work but my cd that I burned would. So I figured that maybye a file was missing or some other file became corrupted. I then copied the whole cd to a folder in my usb stick and replaced everything with the contents that I copied from the cd. Afterwards, it worked flawlessly. The only catch is that one time it reverted back to the same problem, so I redid all of the steps above and I haven't had a problem since.
