I tried re-formatting a few times and still didn't work. So then I tried the other package you had posted, and followed the "dd ......" steps.. same thing, wouldn't recognize it. I tried the magic sequence (I think it was guide, info, aspect, info, 1) and it doesn't reboot. I'm stumped.
typically, those symptoms are from:
1) stick not created correctly
2) stick too large (or to new) to be recognized (odd, but I have seen it happen)
3) the version on the stick is older than the version on the box
4) there are other files on the stick aside from the specified files
Now, starting in 2.9.4 I am releasing what is called an upgrade (instead of a reinstall). This was done so if you had set timers, I would copy the settings over. This should not be causing your problem, but we might try grabing the 292 version from the windows archive and trying that.
Also, make sure there are no other files on the stick and that the .bin file is named exactly correct.
Note if the usb starts flashing after you plug the unit back into the power. If it does, then I will assume that the usb device and driver are functioning.
