    I don't use win32 I use rufus it seems to work fine for me it does take a long while to write the image though. here is a link to rufushttps://rufus.akeo.ie/ I have used this for a long time for windows .

    what I would do is use the LLF first then try the other one the sd card.org does do that sometimes I suspect the SD cards they send out are either cheap fake knockoffs which has been in a lot of the comments I see on this page or they have some sort of defect which does give problems.

    if you download Jessie desktop link: http://www.armbian.com/orange-pi-lite/ you should get a zip file use WinRAR or 7zip to extract files go to directory you extracted to and you should see 3 files 1. ambbian.txt2. Armbian_5.14_Orangepilite_Debian_jessie_3.4.112_desktop.raw3.Armbian_5.14_Orangepilite_Debian_jessie_3.4.112_desktop.raw.ascfile #2 is the raw file not the one that ends in asc at this point follow guide if you need more help just ask good luck.

    I had the same problem and I downloades 2 hd format programs and need to run both on the sd cards a few times but eventaly it works the two programs are.1. http://hddguru.com/software/HDD-LLF-Low-Level-Form...2. https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_4/you will need to play with both of them but I have done it a few times with success.

    thank you so much I will correct the high low text and try unzipping that file much appreciated

    cam someone please help me to find an answer to my problem, on the mouse project I built it I went to the project reference downloaded the code and edited it as stated in reference but every time I went to compile I get an error that states 'Mouse" not found. Does your Sketch include the line #include <mouse.h>"? which I see it does I don't have a lot of programing experience so I am lost I tried for two days to find an answer on the internet with no luck. thanks// Watch video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o09-9n5WrxE//Connection pins provided in the diagram at the beginning of video// library provided and code based on: https://github.com/Seeed-Studio/IMU_10DOF#include "Wire.h"#include "I2Cdev.h"#include "MPU9250.h"#include <Mouse.h>// specific I2C addresses may be passed as a parameter here// AD0 low = 0x68 (default for InvenSense evaluation board)// AD0 high = 0x69MPU9250 accelgyro;I2Cdev I2C_M;int16_t ax, ay, az;int16_t gx, gy, gz;int16_t mx, my, mz;float Axyz[3];int leftbutton = 4;void setup(){ // join I2C bus (I2Cdev library doesn't do this automatically) Wire.begin(); Serial.begin(9600); Serial.println("Initializing I2C devices..."); accelgyro.initialize(); Serial.println("Testing device connections..."); Serial.println(accelgyro.testConnection() ?
