    Hey All,
    haven't been around in a while but i wanted to know if UBCD supports USB external hard-drives and thumb drives? I have an older version (v3.0) but would be willing to upgrade in newer version support USB.

    thx

      As far as I know it does. The drive needs to be attached/pluged in and powered on when the CD is booted.

        UBCD is a DOS based boot CD project and I don't know what it supports... this forum is for UBCD4Win and what thomasjk said applies to it. Do not refer to UBCD4Win as UBCD, they are not the same thing.
        Plan A is always more effective when the device you are working on understands that Plan B involves either a large hammer or screwdriver....

          You can also get UBCD4Win to recognize usb drives by clicking Start -> System -> HWPnP -> Force Install USB.

            Or run disk management and attach a drive letter to USB hard disk.

                P.S. do all versions of UBCD4win support USB drives in this way? or is my version too old?

                  v3.0 was a complete overhaul of UBCD4Win and was the first version to include Preshell, Autobuild and the Systemcore. There have been many improvements since then so I suggest upgrading to something that's been released this century. I don't even know if I had a usb drive at the time that we were working on v3.0

                    I'm having some weirdness where I can plug in the USB drive before bootup, and UBCD4Win comes up just fine, recognizes the drive, assigns a drive letter, and I can create new text files on it, change the file, save it, open files that were already on the drive at bootup, etc. What I CAN'T do is Paste (or Drag-Drop or Send To...) files from the internal HD to the USB drive. It just ignores me as if I had never clicked anything. I can open/read/change the files on the internal HD, but whatever I try, I can't put any files onto the USB drive from the HD - which was the original point of getting UBCD4Win running!

                    Any suggestions?

                    Thanks,
                    JT
