Thank you very much indeed for your detailed instruction. I'll have a go =
at magicrescue.

By the way the reason why  I think I initially had formatted the usb =
device as Fat32 is that I used Disk Utility of Mac OS X where the format =
is labelled as "MSDOS(FAT)" (the other windows format is "exFAT").  =
Maybe I could be wrong ....
Thanks again
