Are you talking about the same jump drive whose file system turned raw?

You can't put a CD File System on a flash drive because of the way the a CD is accessed. Unlike conventional drives, a CD is just one continuous track not much unlike the old vinyl records were.

Because there are no addressable tracks and sectors it wont work. The only way you could make it work would be to write your own driver.

If all you are trying to do is put an autorun file on the drive, that is possible. Just create the autorun.ini file and place it in the root of the flash drive.
