What are the storage requirements for the F12 PrintScreen function (flash drive format mainly)?

My flash drive (Sandisk Cruzer Micro 16GB) doesn't seem to be recognised by this function even though the BIOS sees it and I updated the BIOS to 0651 with it.

I'll press F12 to take a screenshot and it'll go to the drive selection menu but my flash drive isn't listed.

EDIT: I just tried another flash drive (Imation Nano Pro 16GB) and it doesn't show up in the list of drives to save a screenshot to either. I think the 0651 BIOS broke something there.

A similar issue appeared in one of the Asrock threads. Since Asrock and ASUS were once the same company (or at least very closely associated), the same fix might work for you. Check the BIOS to see if Legacy USB support is enabled for "UEFI only" and, if so, try disabling it. From what I gather, enabling Legacy USB for UEFI actually only enables USB keyboard/mouse and disables other USB devices.

Note: I do not have an ASUS board so I don't know if this is even close to the problem or what options exist in the BIOS.
