I ask this on NBR in the drives section and got responses of why I shouldn't do it.
I'll ask here to a much more responsive audience.

How do I setup a SSD in a usb enclosure to be recognized as a removable device? Not partitioned.
I need it setup to appear as a usb flash drive. It's for music in my truck. The head unit will read usb flash drives, but not anything partitioned.

I understand the alternatives, but I have reasons to use the ssd. Mainly I already own it and need a use for it.
The SSD is connected to my pc via a usb to sata adapter right now. I had to partition it in order to access the drive. Windows saw it as a disk drive. I need Windows to see it as a flash drive. For it to work in my truck it needs to NOT be partitioned.
I am transferring from it right now. 8k of files...3hrs to go.......on usb 3


RMPrepUSB may do it. It says it will format a usb device to appear as a floppy disk...No partition table. 64gb floppy drive?????

Take a look at the dd command in Unix/Linux. The higher end articles may be some help. I don't know...I just skimmed it. For instance talk was made about reading and writing to 1/2 " tape. http://www.codecoffee.com/tipsforlinux/ ... s/036.html

Have fun.

A bloke should be able to do what he wants with his own stuff without questions of why. See my sig in NBR. :D

Good reading.

Jeff

exFAT may be an answer.

The dd command looks very powerful and dangerous...

dd is exactly as stated above. But it does what you ask with no back-talk. :D

I haven't used it much and there is a learning curve (semi-steep) but hey..."it's only a computer"...yes?

The information from dd may lead you onto a less dangerous path. Keywords and such...See you got one already.

Peace friend, Beatnik sent her love while picking my pocket...:D
