    what kind of protection has the locked flash drive... on drive or on your computer. Had you tryed to connect it to another computer? if the flahs drive is still protected on other computer the the data from it is encrypted, so you'll need decryption solutions...

    if you locked it with the software, you need the software to unlock it.
