  • Etcher version: v1.5.33
  • Operating system and architecture: Windows 7
  • Image flashed: Linux OS image
  • Do you see any meaningful error information in the DevTools?

User report:

I have been using Resin.IO Etcher 1.3.1 without any issues and like it very much. However, I recently installed Balena Etcher v1.5.33 and tried to flash a Linux image to a usb thumb drive and received the message that Etcher could not locate a portable USB drive.

So I proceeded to flash Linux using Resin.IO Etcher v1.3.1 and it worked perfectly.

Only after this does v1.5.33 now see my portable USB drive. Is there some kind of issue with Windows 7?
