On a windows system it is possible to set a password to protect
information on the 'secure' area of the drive while leaving the 'public'
section open for use by anyone - though in this case no password has
been set as that function doesn't function in Linux. It hasn't been
possible to write to either of these areas - and yes I have tried to
write a file. The result of trying to write a file is a nice little pop-
up that says the drive is read-only... referring to all of the drive,
not just the secure area.
What I'm wondering now is whether or not I can reformat the drive (vfat
probably) thus turning it into an ordinary insecure JumpDrive or will
this destroy some necessary code?
I have a smaller, 'ordinary' Lexar JumpDrive and have no problem writing
