    It used to work just fine, but when I open the diskwriter and select the flash card, it says that it can open the physical drive. Is anyone else having this problem or know how to open the drive? Thanks for the info

    Pretty much this however in order to get it to ALWAY run in admin mode do the following -

    right click
    click on properties
    open up compatibility tab
    select the check box "Run this program as an administrator"
    click ok

    Also depending on which version of windows you are on, you may need to enable compatibility mode for Windows xp.
