I'm wanting to re-image the eMMC for my oDroid. I have an eMMC to MicroSD adapter and a MicroSD to SD adapter. The only computer I have available at the moment with an SD slot is a Windows 7 laptop.


If I put a MicroSD card into the SD adaptor and stick it in the SD slot, laptop beeps to indicate it found new hardware and Micro SD shows up in disk management.


If I attached the eMMC to the MicroSD adapter, then put that into the SD adapter, then stick it in the SD slot the laptop beeps to indicate it detected new hardware; but it doesn't show up in disk management.


If I put the eMMC to MicroSD adapter (withoutout the eMMC attached) into the SD adapter, then into the laptop, it doesn't beep to indicate any new hardware detected.


I conclude from this that it's detecting the eMMC, but I'm stumped as to why it isn't showing up in disk management.


Any ideas?

Nope, nothing. Got hold of an SD reader for my Windows 10 PC and it detected it fine though.
