  1. I'm trying to load Rachel on a 64GB USB flash drive. Not working. Clicked on "Write" but nothing happened. Clicked on "Read" first, then "Write" and it proceeded to write, then said "write successful." But the flash drive says "Empty." So where did it write to? What will the file name be of the written file?
