    Decided that I really needed a bigger USB stick and went for a Sandisk 16GB USB3 stick. Bad choice.

    Turns out Sandisk USB sticks show up as a fixed drive not a removable drive and thus the USB tool would not see it. Rufus though saw it and did the job.
    Same thing happened to me when I tried to use a SanDisk thumb drive. I ended up using diskpart.

    That's interesting.. if it shows as fixed does it mean one can partition it? As in for UEFI having boot on FAT32 and WiM on NTFS? (to overcome the 4GB restriction of FAT32)

    You can format it as Fat or NTFS just like any thumb drive. It just doesn't show up as removable media. The windows 7 DVD download tool ignores them because of this, it looks for removable media.
