That's the key I think. The system account doesn't have access to any network resources.

maybe change the size of the command prompt but make it look nicer at least


The mode command is useful there.
type mode /? for the help screen.

The display mode is the line to pay attention to.

It sounds like it's defective.

If it is a number of the same type of USB key that doesn't work then it's probably a hardware limitation in the USB electronics - the solution is to get another model of USB key.
