I have several flashdrives that have a powerpoint configured to autorun.  I need to re-use them but the files cannot be erased.  My Computer shows 2 drives when it is inserted. One "G" is a removeable drive with (now) FAT32 formatting and it can be written to.  The other "H" shows s a CD drive with CDFS formating and the files are read only.  I have tried to repartition using Disc Management but all I can do is change the name of the partition.  I've bee searching around and looked at some U3 sites but the two things I've tried cannot see it as a U3 drive.  Maybe it's not?  This looks like a real tough deal from what I've seen so I'm putting 500 points on it.
