Question about Soyo Cigar HD20 (fm-cigar20go) 20 GB Hard Drive
Some devices where shipped out without being properly initialized at the
factory. This causes Windows not to be able to recognize the device
when first plugged in.
1 - Download the EZRecover Software from:
http://www.pctalk.info/dl/cigar_devices ... rV2003.zip
2 - Be sure your CigarUSB device is connected to the PC
3 - Unzip the file, and install the program.
4 - Run the program
5 - You'll notice that it will detect that it is a UsbFlashDisk, and it's disk size (256 mb, 128mb, etc.) That is your first indication that your device isn't broken. If it's not detected, then perhaps you'll be better off returning the device to where you bought it.
6 - Press the Recover button. It'll prompt a warning. Just go ahead. The lights (if visible) on your device will start blinking. That's your second indication your CigarUsb device is working.
7 - Once it finishes, remove your device and restart your PC
8 - Once it reboots, plug it back in. It'll start detecting it correctly and automatically configuring everything (in windows XP at least).
9 - Goto http://www.cigarusb.com/home/support.htm and find your CigarUsb model. Download the correct application tools software for it. (In my case, it's a Cigar2Pro - 256mb.).
10 - Install the software. It may ask you to reboot the PC. If it does, go ahead and do it.
11 - Once you reboot (if you where asked to), run the program: "USB Flash Drive Utility"
12 - It'll ask for a password. Just press OK
13 - You need to repartition your device. Press partition.
14 - Set how much memory you want for the secure partition (with password protection) and the standard one. In my case '0' for secured partition, 256mb for Standard. Press Start.
15 - Finally, you need to format your new partition(s). Press Format. Type in a label. Press Start.
Once it finishes, you can start using your device. You DON'T need to do this in every single computer you encounter. All this is only needed to be done the very FIRST time you use the device.
Hope this helps. Please dont forget to rate or vote for the answer! All the best!
