    Strange. I used it with my EP35-DS3R and it detects the drive. Did you see in the HD boot order setting in the BIOS there is an entry for USB-HDDs? Maybe try setting that as the boot drive. It's a long shot, but it might need that to activate detection of USB HDDs or something.

    I have found no combination of BIOS setting/memory card formatting that will boot the computer from the memory card with the EP35-DS3R. This is using the same card reader and memory cards that worked perfect with a MSI MB. You don't need to boot the computer off a memory card to flash the BIOS though. Q Flash works perfect for me. When I hit [End] during boot the MB checks the USB ports for a memory device and always finds my reader, card and BIOS file.

    rubenstein: Funny you mention using a memory card and card reader. Now that I think about it an SD card in my reader worked to flash the BIOS on my ASUS board as well. I have a 6-in-1 reader that is mounted into the chassis and connects to one of the internal USB headers.

    I'll have to try it as a backup to the small FAT partition I made on my boot drive.

    Just for anyone reading this, If you are trying to Qflash with a USB stick you need to have it plugged in when you reboot to Qflash, not after
