Re: The additional FAT32 partition on my USB stick is unusable

Hash: SHA1


I can't help you with the removeable bit, but I wrote a section for the
manual that shows you how to move the FAT32 partition to the first
partition. Nobody reviewed it, I think it went under in the flood of
mailing list emails and I didn't have the time to resubmit.
You can find the text in this email:
