Create bootable USB drive an easy way with Rufus

One of the memory cards for my mobile phone started to “show up”. Intermittent
data transfer errors and phone operation frequent interruptions forced me to
replace the card.

After the replacement, I started investigation on the faulty unit. Roughly,
there are two reasons for the card malfunction: hardware and software
(formatting). If the hardware is impacted, there is not much we can do. If
format is affected, the card can be easily reformatted.

However, Windows built-in formatting utility was not able to perform the
formatting of my poor memory card. At this point I have searched for the
suitable software. And here, Rufus came to the spotlight. Rufus is a small
utility that helps format and create bootable USB flash drives, such as USB
keys, pen drives, memory sticks, etc.

It can be especially useful for cases where:

* You need to create USB installation media from
bootable ISOs (Windows, Linux, etc.)

* You need to work on a system that doesn't
have an OS installed.

* You need to flash a BIOS or other firmware
from DOS.

* You want to run a low-level utility.

Despite its small size, Rufus provides you with everything you need!

Developers’ website:

Two versions of Rufus to download are provided for your convenience: one
with FreeDOS support and one without.

Software is absolutely portable. Once downloaded, the application is
ready to use — no installation or other files are necessary.
