Can I use this Kingston USB Flask Disk?

I run

usb -v

on a boot and I just get the # prompt and nothing else.

I would like to use a new Kingston 2Gb USB High-Speed Flash Disk.
Should this unit work, or should I use an older model USB flash card? Any recommendations to get started with?


This is fun when I can reply to myself.
Yes of course you can use the Kingston USB 2Gb disk.

  1. Did you test a number of USB disks?
    Yes, and no none worked

  2. Did you check your hardware?
    Ah! there it is. My problem was with a faulty wire in my USB cable.
