Re: HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool

I am cautious about downloading .exe files
from a google search.

Chris suggested the following:
http://hp-usb-disk-storage-format-tool.software.informer.com/

I downloaded from there, and it gave me
a file named:
27608.exe

When I check properties/version, I get:
4.0.100.1189

AVG found no virus.

I get a cksum of: 2044393 2074384

The version referenced by Rich is:
HP 27213.exe

I am unable to find a web site to
download that version.

Do you think the 27608.exe is the latest?
Can you confirm cksum, and properties/version?

thx
gordon

Re: HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool

update.

I was able to find and download SP27213
from:
http://www.docjelly.com/Blog/content/binary/SP27213.exe

It shows a properties/version of:
4.0.100.1189 (same as SP27608.exe)

cksum is:
339654719 2071896

under properties/digital signatures I see
a time stamp of:
May 13, 2004

looking back at the 27608.exe I see a
time stamp of:
July 9, 2004

The download web site for SP27213 has
no history in WOT, making it suspicious.

The internal time stamps would seem to
indicate the 27608.exe is the latest version.
Any comments appreciated on how to the
latest "real" version.

thx
gordon

Re: HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool

27608 works and installs on my system. The version# should be 2.1.8. Since I don't see support from HP anymore its hard to say this is the latest but the SP# is higher than 27213.

Re: HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool

It should using the keyword "HP DiskOnKey USB Device" to search for results of this Utility on the HP website.

Here is the info of the new version 2.1.8 A (2004-05-17).

Re: HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool

I need help with HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool.

On my Sony Vaio VGN-SZ120P (XP SP3 / with 1 Admin account only).

I launch (with Admin credentials) HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool (tried v.2.0.6 and v.2.1.8).

I can see any external HDD but no USB thumbdrives (the "Device" field is just greyed out if I insert any pendrive).

The same versions of HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool work perfectly on any other laptop (also running XP SP3) and I can see and format both external HDD and USB thumbdrives.

On my Vaio I cannot NTFS format thumbdrives (which I do pretty frequently) using the very convenient HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool...I hope somebody can think of a solution: I would be VERY grateful.

Tnx, Anke

Re: HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool

 

 I had to spent lot of time in finding this utility from the hp site, however, all of the old links provided are invalid.. Following is the new version and link available from hp web site.. .Pl. do not download other files from "un reliable web sites" causing virus/malware spread

Re: HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool

Don't use this attachment, this one looks dirty to me.  You run it, it destroys itself, fits many descriptions of viruses.
