Well, stupidly put it in my xbox and formatted it for use as a storage unit and it's deleted the executable that was on the pen drive. I'm now stuck with a 4gb pen drive until I can unlock the other half.

Hopefully someone has a similar pen drive with the software and can please hook me up.

thanks

Can you remember what the exe was called. Istar ?
#6
can't remember for the life of me :( ... i recall it had like a vertical bar (green and blue) where green was public and blue was private and you could slide up and down to give you different proportions.

try the disksafe.exe still no good try the format tool and see what it says
#12
still no joy. euasus partition manager doesn't even detect the usb. It's an 8gb stick with a 2gb private partition... disk manager only sees it as 6gb.

Try pressing flip removable bit first and then reinsert pen after it tells you and then check in disk managemant to see if you can see 2 partitons etc (for got to add this so hope you aint done the below bit already) then try using active/ non active etc


after extracting find folder with lexar boot it..and run it then choose the drive letter of your usb pen you do this at your own risk though. and click on flip removeable bit tick do not load system files and tick non active then try format @ top right and follow what it tells you.
