USB jump drive with two partitions

Q: USB jump drive with two partitions

Thanks in advance.

I have a USB jump drive that has two partitions. One partition has a small program that is used to create a password needed to access what ever data is placed there. I don't need it, the program or the extra partition, they only take up room. When inserted into the USB port is shows up as two different removable drives. Is it possible to get rid of that program and make just one large partition? If so how would one go about doing that?

I purchased a jump drive because i need one for school and it works on the school computer, but it doesn't work on mine. When i put it in my computer it says i'm missing the driver and i don't know how that is. I have windows 98 and it says it works with that so I'd like some help.

Hi,

The majority of the USB jump drives need a driver to allow them to be used on Win 98 FE or SE.

Above Win 98 SE they generally do not need drivers.

Try the manufacturers web siite for driver software.

I have a laptop here with an apparently dead CD drive, that needs a fresh OS load. Has anyone ever successfully loaded XP from a USB jump drive. I don't want to boot XP from the jump drive, but rather want to install it to the systems hard drive, using the usb jump drive.

all advice appreciated.

If there is no method to do this, how hard is it to set it up to run over the network. I have imaged my XP cd to a .iso file. Can probably convert it if need be...

For one of my classes, I have to save my files to a "pen drive." I bought a Lexar 256 MB jump drive that is supposed to be compatable with a Mac Os X which is what the school computers have. I was told that it would be there when I plugged it in, but it wasn't. Then, someone asked if I could format the pen drive with Disk Utility. I don't know if I can or not. I also don't know what Disk Utility is or how to format the jump drive. I can save my songs to the shared folder, but I'd rather not risk someone deleting all of my work...so I need to know how to save my files to the jump drive. Please, HELP!

I don't have a TPM on my notebook so I had to disable it if I wanted to use bitlocker. It is saving a key file to my jump drive in order to use bitlocker on my main notebook HDD.

Does this mean that each and every time I boot my computer I will need to plug in the thumb drive? If so, that kinda stinks. I was hoping to be able to enter a password at boot up.

Thank you.

Ok, I don't know if this is the right section to post this so don't attack me if I'm wrong, I'm new to these forums.

Anyways, lets get down to my problem. I have an 8gb jump drive that is relatively new. It is a PNY jump drive if that makes a difference. One day I noticed that it was almost full. I looked on it and I only had a couple of files. I was confused so I emptied the jumpdrive onto my desktop. I refreshed the window, took out the jump drive and put it back in, I waited a few days and tryed again but it still says that it is nearly full even though there are no files on it.

This is the picture.
My operating system is Windows 7
I have an Acer Aspire notebook

I previously used the jump drive for readyboost but I saw no performance change and I stopped using it. (I cheacked that as well and readyboost was not enabled)

Thanks in advance

EDIT: The jump drive did not have this problem when I first got it, used ready boost, or removed readyboost. The memory went down to a reasonable amount when I removed the readyboost.
 

A:Jump Drive Full?

RIght click on the drive there in My Computer and click "Format" from the context menu. You should be able to reformat the Drive (if given an option, I would choose NTFS over FAT32 for best compatibility). Formatting will remove everything on there, so if there's nothing, it hsould clear all that out. It's worth a shot, anyway.

Hi, Am running a one-month old AMD PC with Windows XP Home, SP2, etc.

Bought a San Disk MiniCruzer 1G, and use it daily to transfer some files. About a week ago, when I plugged it into the front USB port, it caused the PC to reboot. It worked fine the few days after that until this morning, when it caused the PC to reboot three times in a row.

I have tried plugging in my USB digital camera to that port, and it worked fine. I am not sure if I'm dealing with a defective USB port, a defective jump drive ... or some other, as-yet unnamed anomaly.

Anybody have any suggestions?

Stay warm and safe in this cold, icy weather -- and thanks in advance,

I bought a 4gb jump drive from sony a while ago. It worked fine until I was transferring a bunch of data and someone pulled it out in mid-transfer. I plugged it in and it had created about 50 folders named "0000000.000" and there was nothing in them. I assumed that it had screwed up, so I attempted to delete them. They wouldn't delete. I tried reformatting it several times and even then, whenever I try to put anything in a folder or directory, safely remove it, and then plug it back in, all of the "000000.000" folders get created again. It will hold data, but only if it is in the root dir. Reformatting it is the only thing I could think of that would undo something like this. Any suggestions?

What went wrong and how can I prevent this from happening again?

Sometimes a program that is open, even one you don't think was associated with recent USB drive activity, can prevent the release of the hardware. Common culprits are Outlook and any browsers. Best to close every program one by one to see what was holding it up.

Should be able to reformat the drive ( either via the utility disk which should have come with the drive or windows)
That should clear the drive and start fresh
BUT there's a chance ( in case you don't have the utility disk ) that windows will try to format only 7 megs. I would suggest taking the drive to a puter with windows XP SP2 and format it there.

When the jump drive loades the red light at the end of it flashes ususally but now when I plug it in the light just stays on. I know the computers are not recognizing it because I have gone to "my computer" and cannot access my jump drive nor does my jump drive show up and I have also right clicked "my computer" clicked "manage" clicked "disc management" and it does not show up there and i have also clicked "divice manager" manager and there are not problems there. I have done that on both computers. I do not know what to do. I know that there is probally nothing I can do and it is just probally broken but I do not know how it would be broken or why. the case of the jump drive is clear and I cannot see anything unattached inside. I just thought of asking if there is anything else i should check or can do. Thanks.......Jessica
 

A:jump drive not working

The jump drives are almost a "disposable item" these days, you would not be expected to always "see" a failure, given the microscopic nature of the components and circuit board tracks.

As it is not recognised, I think you need to assume its dead. It cannot be reformatted etc, as to do so would mean it has to be recognised.

I think the diagnostics you have undertaken are quite conclusive, time for a new one...

When I am installing Windows (XP or 7), I first set the computer's CMOS to "Boot from CD ROM" first.
Then I put the factory CD or DVD into the drive.
Then I turn the machine on. After POST,
I see the message "Press any key to boot from CD" and it continues.
OK - that's normal

Now - let's do this:
I copy the image of the bootable CD onto a flash drive.
I then set the computer to "Boot from USB Flash drive" first.
I install the flash drive.
I turn the machine on.
I never see the message "Press any key to boot from CD".

When I plug the SanDisk into a USB port, it automatically opens the drive and displays the files -- the behavior I want. That does not happen with either of the other two drives, despite my making sure their AutoPlay properties are set to automatically open and display the files. I'm sure I'm missing some salient point about how to make all jump drives "autoplay" to display what's in them. What is it?

Hello Everyone,

I`m kinda new to these forums, I`m not really sure if this is the correct place to put this, so move it as nessessary.

Recently i purchased a Lexar Secure 2 Jump Drive. I have two computers currently running in my house, an XP and a 98 SE. I put the drive in the XP computer, and it worked just fine, diffrent story for my 98 computer.

I realize that 98 SE will not reconize usb devices like XP does and you need to have the drivers. I downloaded the drivers nessesary and proceded to install it. Windows automaticly reconized it as "JUMPDRIVE SECURE" and prompted me for drivers. I pointed it in the folder that i had downloaded the drivers to, however it completely ignored the drivers and proceded to install the windows 98 generic drivers for the now identified "USB Mass Storage Device". I figured that it was proly a fluke and removed it, and proceded to install the drivers again. The computer still ignored the drivers and gave me the crapy windows generic drivers. I rebooted and tried a third time, same deal. By this time i was getting quite mad so i did the "Have Disk" option and it told me that the drivers for it where bad.

I got on the Lexar Chat Support program and told them my deal. The technition sent me the exact same drivers and gave me step by step instructions. When they didnot work, he told me to call their Support Hotline, I did and got no response. So here i am now!

Please Help!

Thank you All!

I have refurbished a thrown away Gateway Solo 2500 and it has Windows 98 on it. It has a Celeron chip in it. It won't recognize a jumpdrive inserted in a USB port. I've used the control panel to try and get it recognized as an unsupported (other) device. Any suggestions? Should I try to install a newer version of Windows?

A person on our network can not view a jump drive after he plugs it in. When I log in I can but it is because I am an admin. and it is putting it under the Hard Disk Drive section and not the Removable Drives Section. Why is it not putting it under the Removable Drives. It is a Lexmar Secure Jumpdrive.
 

A:Jump Drive Not Able To Be Viewed

It could be that the user has a 'mapped' network drive on the driveletter that this USB-key wants to use (they only see real HDs and CD/DVD). Move that 'mapped' drive up to the next free letter, then retry that jump drive.

 I am probably not in the right forum, but have to start somewhere to get my logbook on my jump drive.  I am getting this error.  This is my first time to try and put a password on my jump as I have sensitive material saved. 
I am not computer savvy.  My jump drive asked me if I wanted a password, so I said yes. Then it asked me out encryption and gave me a recover key.  Now it says this....
"BitLocker Drive Encryption failed to recover from an abruptly terminated conversion.  This could be due to either all conversion logs being corrupted or the media being write-protected."
Please help!  I am freaking out b/c I have weeks worth of work I have GOT to have.  Like today!

This is not really a question but rather a solution to my problem. I am running Win XP on my Desktop PC. Windows would not recognize any of my USB jump drives or my External Passport Drive. Some people have recommended to delete drives and Windows Service Pack 3 to resolve the issue.

If you are running any kind of protection software like ZoneAlarm or any other type of Firewall software; that you do the following:
1. Remove the USB jump drive or other external drives from the USB port;
2. Deactivate or stop all security/firewall software from running;
3. Plug in your USB jump drive again and it will probably work right away;
4. Leave them plugged in and re-activate or restart your security alarm software.

Your security/firewall software should remember the setup and not restrict the drives in the future. I hope this helps.
