Windows Microsoft Media Creation tool problems.

For some strange reason, the Windows Media Creation Tool won't recognize my 8 gb Lexar flash drive. I have read on other forums but nobody really has any solutions. I have formatted it to NTFS and FAT32 and tried but no dice.

Rufus.

Use that Windows Tool again, download Windows as an ISO (the burn-to-DVD option). Upon completion, copy it to another folder, so if you mess up, you won't have to download it again. This way makes sure that there's nothing wrong with the ISO.

Get Rufus, tell it to format as NTFS, load up the ISO image, and let it rip!

Thank you both, I tried RUFUS and it worked perfectly.
