  • Pesky USB

    Hello fellow designers.

    I know most/all/a lot of you use USB Keys to transfer work, send to an annoying printer, exchange files with a client. This is somewhat off topic because I know I can just go buy another USB key for a couple bucks but this is going to annoy me if I don't figure it out.

    I received a pair if USB Keys from my dealership after purchasing my 2008 Lancer. On said USB Key was a bunch of useless info on my car and some free space that I can do whatever I want on it.

    I tried getting rid of the useless information but I CANT And it's driving me up the wall!

    I tried formating it but it won't let me... Does anyone know of a "Force Format" Kind-of-thing? I'm on a Mac but if you give me a solution on a PC I shall love you all the same.

    Thanks

    Yeah, I've seen a few thumb drives like that, where the info can't be erased. Never found a solution.

              That is just like iPods and many other storage devices, it's like they have partitioned the drive into two. One that you can access, and other that you cannot.
              I don't know of a solution sorry.

                    "I can type" clearly you can't.

                        2GB? Jeebus!

                        My iPod Touch doesn't even use close to that amount. 616MB for apps, 55GB for music, 225MB for other...

                            Yeah... 2GB is a lot? Are you exaggerating just a tad?

                              you can stop rubbing it in any time now Artist....

                              lol

                              and 1 method requires a microwave.
                              Another requires a large, rare earth magnet.
                              The third requires fireworks/bottle rockets.

                                I agree with this sentiment. Graphic design in respect to only doing print work is becoming secondary, and therefore much more competitive. Finding a job that involves some graphic design is a good start...
