In FlashWizard Pro V4.5b, does NE1 know what happens if you use the 'part1' option on the stick format instead of the 'disc' option?

The help file reference is somewhat lacking when it explains this option as :-

"Format Usb formats a connected usb stick, either as “disc” or “part1”, choosen by the user."

Any sensible answers? Anything to do with partitions?

Cheers.

Hi Folks,

I read somewhere that some USB sticks have to be formatted as part1. As mine formatted perfectly OK as disc, I assumed that you would try part1 if it would not format as disc.
I can't remember where I read it. I've checked the Klona guide but it's not there.
