USB Pen Drive two partitions, one showing as cd-rom drive.
Posted on 2006-04-19
I've been given a 128MB pen drive that already had some files on it, I don't really want these files and would like to delete them, but there is a problem!
The pen drive appears to have two partitions, the first one containing the files appears in Windows as a cd-rom drive, and as such can't delete the files.
In Windows XP I can get the following properties: (G: being the CD-rom partition)
CBM1180A Flash Disk USB Device (G:)
CBM1180A Flash Disk UCB Device
-------Generic Volume (H:)
Properties of G: DVD/CD-Rom Drives (Standard CD-Rom Drives)
In Windows 98 I get the following:
---CBM1180A Flash Disk F:
---CBM1180A Flash Disk G:
Is there any way I can delete this CD-Rom partition, and merge into one partition that I can use?
