Formatting an FHP USB memory stick on OS/X
I'm having trouble getting my USB stick formatted properly - it stopped working with a USB problem, so this seems the most sensible thing to do.

I'm using OS/X on a Mac. I've formatted it with MBR and FAT.

I've put the files back. The files are fine - sleepyhead is able to read them with no problem.

I've removed the OS/X .* files.

I think the problem could be the user and group. I've set the permissions to 777, but that doesn't fix it.

Do you know what user and group it should be?

Anybody with an FHP machine with a USB stick should be able to find this out easily by typing in:

ls -ln /Volumes/FHPCARE

at the command line prompt.

I'd be most grateful if you could do this, and let me know what the output looks like - I'm just looking for the second and third numbers.

Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night

Hi, I don't have Mac, I have PC with Win7. I'm curious to know why you formatted with MBR (Master boot record) Was this so you could boot from your F&P USB stick? Why would you need to do that? Anyway my second & third numbers are:
2. DET0001.FPH
3. DET0002.FPH
And so on. The path is /FHPCARE/ICON/26417087/
Perhaps this is of some help to you. I hope so.
