I've tried pretty much every combination of everything - from formatting the drive myself and writing bootcode manually, to changing drive letters and running WinToFlash as Administrator.

Nothing works.

I tried each and every one of the solutions. None of them worked for me. So I just tried rebooting into safe mode and voila!

I'm using Windows 7, I solved in this way:

-Right click on "WinToFlash.exe";
-Selected "Run as administrator";

No more claiming about locked drives.

AHA!

make sure the usb port isnt 1.0, the front ports on my PC are. I plugged the thumb drive into an extender I have plugged in the back and it worked!

also ran wintoflash as admin, closed all explorer windows, danced around an oak, and lit fires at dawn.

hope this helps
woot tyvm.

Hi,
For me, turning antivirus BEFORE starting win2flash solved the problem.

For anyone trying to solve this issue. I managed to get past the message by simply unplugging the USB drive and quickly hitting retry after plugging it back in.

Hi! Im trying to reinstall Windows xp in my laptop (my current OS is Vista). I watched some videos regarding tutorials on how to reinstall XP using a USB flash drive. When I watched it, they still uses their cd-rom. The problem is my cd rom is broken nd also my Windows XP Installation CD is broken too. That's why i resorted in using USB flash drive. I have my Windows XP OS file in .iso format. Now WinToFlash can't find my cd-rom. My question is do i need to have a usable cd-rom? because when I try to use WinToFlash, there is this error that appears saying, "WinToFlash cannot locate the drive.. blah blah" Can you help me with this? Thanks in advance!
