Twin Mos flash disk is locked, cannot be unlocked.

I could not re-format my USB2 TwinMos flash disk with any PC using Windows XP environment. The disk is write-protected although I shifted the tiny switch back and forth. Can you help me solve my problem?

Thank you.

Hello my no is 08033771188 my username is chidex45 i forgot my password


To resolve these problems, you can simply change or reset forgotten Windows password with a Windows password reset disk. A password reset disk is a flash drive configured with your current password, specially formatted to reset the password on Windows machine when you ever forget it. It acts as a key to unlock the account. But the problem is that we often forgot to create a password reset disk and cannot log on computer with any user account.Of course, a common solution is to use a third party software, just take Windows Password Unlocker for example. It can help you remove lost Windows password including Windows administrator, user and domain password on Windows 7/Vista/XP/2000/2003(R2)/2008(R2), etc. You can easily reset Windows password with a bootable CD/DVD or USB flash drive in hand.

When i inserted 4GB pendrive in the pc when i open the pendrive it doesn't open and shows write protection and it can't be formatted at this situation.


1.Look for a switch or button on the side of the micro SD card or adapter. It might have a lock/unlock symbol on it. 2.Move the switch to the "Unlocked" position to remove write protection. This position may also be labeled "R/W" for read/write. If you have no switch, continue to Step 3. 3.Download and install Sony EzRecover (see Resources for link) and attempt to use it to format the card (this will erase all content). If this doesn't work, try Step 4. 4.Delete and repartition the micro SD card using Windows XP. Select "Control Panel" > "Administrative Tools" > "Disk Management." Select the micro SD drive and click "Delete." Right-click on empty drive and select "New Partition."

Boot system from external hard-disk with USB2


You can check the bios and make sure that it is set to boot from USB. Turn computer off. Turn back on and immediately press F2. This will get you into the BIOS. Look around and find boot properties. Set the boot first to USB. If you do not see the USB option, then your motherboard doesn't support the boot from USB option.

Scan disk Cruzer freezes my PC when inserted into the USB2 drive. I have tried it from a dead boot to inserting it after the boot is accomplished. I had this happen on my 2 desktops. What's up?


1. Download this tool:
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4040651/LLFTOOL.EXE

2. Format

(WARNING: After running this low level format tool,
the whole USB flash disk surface will be fully erased.
Therefore, data restoration will be impossible after using this utility!)
