Cant re-partition Maxell Venture USB flash drive
Posted on 2009-12-23
I have a 4GB Maxell Venture USB flash drive that comes with two partitions:
- 1MB containing some encryption software
- 3999MB for data
I want to make it into a single partition device of 4GB.
Sounds simple? I cant find anything that works.
I have tried:
- XP disk management.
This shows it as two separate devices, not a single device with two partitions.
Deleting partitions has no effect.
- Ubuntu Gparted is the same.
- HP USB disk storage format tool v2.1.8
- The only time any computer sees it as a single device is under XP, safely remove hardware,
where it shows as "Safely remove USB mass storage device - drives (E:, F:)
This ought to be easy, but I cant figure it!
