    I have a 16Mb LexarMedia compactflash card which doesn't read at all. When I insert the disk into pcmcia card reader the windows explorer shows an additional drive but it gives a message "disk not formatted". I try to format but it gives me an error message "cannot format drive". I then tried the Acronis Director Suite 10 build 2089 and it doesn't show any additional drive apart from the local harddrive.

    Does anyone have a work around for this so I can fix this media ?

    Does the acronis director suite read these medias ?

    Hello cdickson,

    Thank you for your interest in Acronis Partition and Disk Managing Software.

    Please accept my apologies for the delay with the response.

    I'm afraid that it is not possible to perform any partitioning operations with a Flash disk using Acronis Disk Director Suite 10.0. You are also not able to recover such a media using our software. The support of these devices will probably be implemented in future.

    Thank you.
