Error on Windows 10

Post by Jeff2 » Wed Apr 20, 2016 1:03 pm

Hi,
when I try to write a image with USBimage Tool on Windows 10 I get this error message (device mode):
---------------------------
Error!
---------------------------
Could not access the USB device (Code: 32)!

Please close all open explorer windows for this device.
Der Prozess kann nicht auf die Datei zugreifen, da sie von einem anderen Prozess verwendet wird.


---------------------------
OK
---------------------------

Volume mode results in a similar message. However, I can format the drive as well as use ImageUSB by PassMark (http://www.osforensics.com/tools/write-usb-images.html) without error.

But I'd like to use USB Image tool - favorites, not too many confirmation dialogs. How could I find the reason for the error?

Thanks

Another Process is locking the device. This can be an open Windows explorer, anti-virus or something else. It's not Windows 10 specific. I'm using it myself.

Hi,
how can I know which process this could be?
I rebooted the machine, still the same error. I use ImageUSB and it works.

Yes, I believe that USB image tool works for you - but it doesn't for me. Other, similar tools do work. So how can I determine, what's the matter with USB image tool? Is there a hidden logging facility?

Thanks!

PS: BTW, I needed to reregister because somehow, forgotten or not, my password didn't work anymore. Unfortunately, sending the password didn't work either. My previous user names were jeff and jeff2. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Are you running your Windows with a user with limited rights? Can you login as admin user?

Hi,

I'm running as admin, having started USBit elevated through UAC.

Thinking further about it - maybe it's important: the device does not contain any readable drive data. I try to write raw data (more or less arbitrary text data) in device mode. This used to work with Windows 7 at least. I believe I haven't tried it since I installed Win10 in august last year.

Edit: Tried it on another win10 PC - works without issue. If I only knew what's blocking the device.

Edit2: After uninstalling "Paragon ExtFS für Windows" USBit is working again. It's strange, however, that the other image writer doesn't have such a problem. Maybe you would want to check whether you could find a problem. Unfortunately I cannot post a link because my message would be rejected as spam. Nevertheless you'll find the free download by searching for "Paragon ExtFS für Windows".

Hello all,
I have extra registred on this page to confirm that I had same problem and could solve it only after process stoping of "Paragon Linux File System for Windows". It looks that this program locked the write access to the SD-card.
