    Cheers for that mate. I might try the Media Creation Tool again at some point and see if fully formatting the USB first ensures the MCT works. Ive never had any problems with using it before until the other week when I got the same error as you got

    Because Steve said it worked for him and just out of curiosity today I tried doing a Full Format (not Quick) on a brand new 16gb Sandisk Ultra 3.0 USB flash drive (I wanted to remove Sandisks secure access software from the drive to make it totally blank before starting the Media Creation Tool). It failed again at 51% as its done a couple of times before for me with the exact same screen shot error message as you showed earlier in the post. I haven't got a clue why its not working but it surely has to be a problem with the Media Creation Tool. It looks like I'll be sticking with the Diskpart method. NavyLCDR and also a few other knowledgeable guys on here gave me a lot of help and instructions on using Diskpart so I'm happy to use it rather than Rufus. All the guys saying its the best and most reliable method to create a bootable Windows 10 USB flash drive. The Media Creation Tool method was problem free for me when I used it to clean install the 1703 Creators update but it wont work for me anymore otherwise id probably have stuck with the MCT method. Looking around the internet there seems to be plenty of other people getting the same error message
