Staples Relay 4GB secure flash drive all of the sudden won't prompt me to enter password to access the drive's contents. Computer makes ''acknowledgement noise'' when I plug in the flash drive. ''Removable Disk'' appears in my list of available drives, but when I click on it, I get a ''Please insert disk into drive F:'' error. My other, non-secure flash drive works fine in same USB port. Is the Relay secure flash drive corrupt, or is it something easier to fix?

Flash memory probably corrupted, you may need to format to get it useable, you will lose data but you can try a data recovery app which should retrieve most of the data even after formatting.

Accer apire one d255e hardisk security lock


The BIOS (Basic Input Output System) is designed to check the integrity of the computer hardware and launch the operating system. The BIOS also has basic security features that prevent unauthorized access to the computer by locking the hard drive with a password. The password is required in order to launch the operating system. That option can be disable without an changes to the operating system.

Turn your computer on. Press "Esc," "Del," "F2" or "F8" to access the BIOS. Use the arrow keys to go to the "Security" tab. Press "Enter." Highlight "HDD Lock," Boot Password" or "Hard Drive password" using the arrow keys. Press "+" until "Disable" appears. Go to the "Exit" tab, highlight "Save and Exit" and press "Enter." Press "Y" when prompted to reboot your computer without the hard drive password.

INSTALL WINDOWS 7 USING USB PEN DRIVE !!!!!!!!


Requirements:
*USB Flash Drive (Minimum 4GB)
*Windows 7 or Vista installation files.
Follow the below steps to create bootable Windows 7/Vista USB drive using which you can install Windows 7/Vista easily.
1. Plug-in your USB flash drive to USB port and move all the contents from USB drive to a safe location on your system.
2. Open Command Prompt with admin rights. Use any of the below methods to open Command Prompt with admin rights.
*Type cmd in Start menu search box and hit Ctrl+ Shift+ Enter.
Or
*Go to Start menu > All programs > Accessories, right click on Command Prompt and select Run as administrator.
3. You need to know about the USB drive a little bit. Type in the following commands in the command prompt:
First type DISKPART and hit enter
Next type LIST DISK command and note down the Disk number (ex: Disk 1) of your USB flash drive. In the below screenshot my Flash Drive Disk no is Disk 1.
4. Next type all the below commands one by one. Here I assume that your disk drive no is “Disk 1”.If you have Disk 2 as your USB flash drive then use Disk 2.Refer the above step to confirm it.
So below are the commands you need to type and execute one by one:
SELECT DISK 1
CLEAN
CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY
SELECT PARTITION 1
ACTIVE
FORMAT FS=NTFS
(Format process may take few seconds)
ASSIGN
EXIT
Don’t close the command prompt as we need to execute one more command at the next step. Just minimize it.
5. Next insert your Windows7/Vista DVD into the optical drive and check the drive letter of the DVD drive. In this guide I will assume that your DVD drive letter is “D” and USB drive letter is “H” (open my computer to know about it).
6. Maximize the minimized Command Prompt in the 4th step.Type the following command now:
D: CD BOOT and hit enter.Where “D” is your DVD drive letter.
CD BOOT and hit enter to see the below message.
7. Type another command given below to update the USB drive with BOOTMGR compatible code.
BOOTSECT.EXE /NT60 H:
Where “H” is your USB drive letter. Once you enter the above command you will see the below message.
8. Copy your Windows 7/Vista DVD contents to the USB flash drive.
9. Your USB drive is ready to boot and install Windows 7/Vista. Only thing you need to change the boot priority at the BIOS to USB from the HDD or CD ROM drive. I won’t explain it as it’s just the matter the changing the boot priority or enabling the USB boot option in the BIOS.
Note: If you are not able to boot after following this guide means you haven’t set the BIOS priority to USB. If you got any problem in following this guide feel free to ask questions by leaving comment.

How to unlock micro sd


Micro Secure Digital memory cards, or Micro SD cards, provide storage for a variety of different kinds of devices, including mobile phones, PDAs and cameras. They can be protected by passwords so that the information that you have saved on it is secure. Sometimes, the password can be forgotten or lost. Recovering your password is easily done with your computer and SD card reader on your computer.

Place the micro SD card into your card reader on your computer. Right-click your "Start" button and then "Explore". Find the micro SD card, it will be listed as a removable drive. Click on the micro SD card and the files will show on the right-hand side. Find the file that says " MMCSTORE" and then select "Copy." Right-click on your desktop and then click "Paste." This will move the MMCSTORE file to the desktop so that you can get access to edit it. Right-click on the MMCSTORE and then click on "Open With." Open the file with Notepad. Read the text to find the password. It will be in plain text. Remove the SD card from the computer and place it into the device for which it is used as storage. Turn on the device. When it prompts you for the password, enter it. Hope this helps.

1 Answer

When i plug it into my computer it comes up as a cd drive with 0 bytes free of 0 bytes im running windows 7 now but when i got it i was running windows xp


Some flash-drives imitate a CD-disk (which, after being written and "closed", always show up as having "zero bytes free space"), in order to automatically run some software from the flash-drive each time that the flash-drive is connected to a computer. For example, that "auto-run" software may be a file encryption/decryption routine, requiring you to enter a password to access your files.
So, if you "lose" the flash-drive, whoever finds it cannot access your files, without having your password.

How to remove write protect on my usb flash drive


If you have a write-protected flash drive that you need to access, it can be difficult to change it to allow you access, especially if it is a security-optimized flash drive. However, there are a few practical steps you can take to change the write-protection on a flash drive.


#1

Check for a write-protection switch. This switch, when engaged, will lock the contents of the flash drive and is a very common security feature. It is generally located on the side of the flash drive, and has an "enabled" or "on" position, and an "off" position. Slide this into the "off" position.

#2

Override password security. If your flash drive has password security, but you have forgotten the code, you can try to override the security feature by going to the Start menu and selecting "Run." A dialogue box will pop up, into which you should type in the path to the file on the USB drive you want to access. Note: This only works on USB drives with very simple security. If the security is complex, this will not work.

#3

Format the flash drive. If nothing else works, you can always format your USB flash drive, which will set all your write protections back to default. From there, you can customize them however you want, but all your data will be lost. To format the flash drive, go to the My Computer, right-click your drive and select "Format." A status bar will pop up. Once the status bar disappears, you can change the write-protection settings on your flash drive without incident.

Hope this might help

Thanks

How can i create a password for an single drive of my system, for example i wanna lock my D drive , How can i lock..?


You can tell windows to disallow access to the drive, but all anyone has to do is 're-allow' access, or even put it on a non-windows computer that understands windows drives, and your lock is gone.

If you really want security, check out the free 'TrueCrypt' program at: http://www.truecrypt.org/

That will allow you to lock the drive, and even have the drive completely hidden until you enter the passphrase.

I want to "lock" the flash drive with a password.


    Encrypt Individual Files and Folders on a Flash Drive
  1. Step 1 Choose "Tools" from the menu bar at the top of the program, such as Microsoft Wordmag-glass_10x10.gif, and pick "Options."
  2. Step 2 Select "Security" from the many tabs displayed in the new popup window. Create a password in the "Password to Open" or "Password to Modify" section and click "OK" at the bottom of the box.
  3. Step 3 Confirm your password when prompted. Drag the password protected files to your flash drive. To open a protected file, enter password when prompted. Remember, passwords are case sensitive.
  4. Encrypt Entire Flash Drive
  5. Step 1 Download and install the freeware program "Cryptainer LE" onto your PC or laptop. Enter a meaningful password from 8 to 100 characters and define the file location and size, which you can change at a later time. Enter your password when prompted.
  6. Step 2 Install Cryptainer Mobile when the Cryptainer LE installation is complete. Select "Tools" on the menu bar at the top of your screen. Select "Install Cryptainer Mobile" and follow the prompts. The Mobile version comes with the LE download.
  7. Step 3 Close the LE version on your desktop. Select a location and meaningful password for the Mobile version. To protect important files and folders, drag and drop them into the vault, the location of the encrypted files.

Can I password protect my Cruzer USB 2.0 Flash Drive, 4 GB for in the case I loose it?


Hi,
The Cuzer has its own encryption software. Plug the Cruzer in a USB 2.0 prt on the computer. If the Cruzer LaunchPad does not execute by default, use the Windows explorer to explore My computer. You will see two icons related to your cruzer, one of them is a CD_ROM. In fact it is the LaunchPad of the U3Smart OS that come swith the Cruzer.
Click on the CD-ROM icon and an a yellow icon (U3) installs on the system tray. Click on it. A pop-up window deploys. Click the Settings button on the right side (2nd menu on the right, under explore drive). You will have to configure U3 LaunchPad Settings. Select Security and enable security.

See image4ef08f4.jpg

You will be prompted for a password.

Warning: If you use the Cruzer on Macs or Linux, you will not be able to open it on these OS's if security is enabled. You will be able to open it on Windows only.

Hope it helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.
