Hi. I have got a 64mb USB drive which has two partitions from a friend. One is named as Auto_Run (drive F) which is about 400k and one is named removable disk (drive G) which is 60mb in size. The drive G is formattable and is writeable (in FAT32 file system). However, the drive F is a CDFS file system and it cannot be formatted and when I tried to format it, it says it is write-protected. The drive F has some files in it
which is not needed. I tried repartition it using administrative tool but there is no drive seen.
I hope some one has similar experience can advise me.

Try right-clicking on the drive. It should have some box that you can check that has to do with the write-protect. See if you can un-check that.
Never be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the ark. Professionals built the Titanic.

Thanks McFly. I tried that but the autorun partition has no white rectangle or there is nothing
deleted (write-protected) unlike the other partition which has a white rectangle for formatting
Thanks Michael. I have tried your u3 smart drive uninstaller. The software could not detect any U3 smart drive. The autorun in the usb drive attempted to load DrvMon.exe everytime windows start up
i.e. write to registry and put DrvMon.exe in the system32 directory when I plugged it in. Until now,
I still prevent it by denying them access using firewall and Spybot S&D. However, when I denied it,
it start giving "bell ringing sound" or "ding ding" repetitively (presumely trying very hard to load after
being denied). The PC then slow down and will hang.
My ipod nano has had a similar thing happen to it, when i try to put songs on it, it just says the disk is write protected, please remove write protection from drive f. Can someone please help me!!!!!!!!!
