How do I put MP3 files on Kubik Evo 4gb?


The easiest way is to plug it into a PC - any Mac, Linux or Windows machine will see it as a USB flash drive. Copy the mp3 files you want to listen to into the Music folder. The trick is when you disconnect - unmount the flash drive (or eject it if using Windows) and then wait for the Evo to switch from USB connect symbol to the charging symbol. If it does not change after 5 minutes, unplug it, flip the side switch to off, then back to on and it should be OK.

How can I password protect folders / files on my sandisk cruzer glide 128gb


Use the software that came installed on the drive. Use it to secure the whole disk. To access it you need to enter a password. Be careful though. The drive may not be accessible on Linux or Mac.

Can not delete pictures on my flash drive on my mac computer


Are you sure they're not deleted? Try this procedure:
1) Connect the flash drive to the Mac's USB port.
2) Open the flash drive folder.
3) Delete any files you want.
4) Empty the wastebasket.
5) If the wastebasket is already empty (i.e. the files you deleted from the flash drive aren't in it), try to find the deleted files in the Finder and delete them manually.
6) Eject the flash drive - don't just pull it out of the USB port.
7) Put it back in, to check the deleted files really are deleted.
8) Sometimes a flash drive will create a hidden folder of deleted files, so it looks as if the files are missing, but they're still taking up space on the drive. If you find this is the case, use the Finder to track down the deleted files and delete them manually.

Hope that helps. Good luck!

Booting from a USB Stick


Here you go:

Download the Ubuntu Live ISO (if you dont have it already) and burn it to CD
Restart your computer (booting from the Ubuntu Live CD)
Insert a 1GB or larger USB flash drive
Open a terminal window and type sudo su
Now type fdisk -l to list available drives/partitions (note which device is your flash drive Example: /dev/sdb). Throughout this tutorial, replace all instances of x with your flash drive letter. For example, if your flash drive is sdb, replace x with b.
Type umount /dev/sdx1
Type fdisk /dev/sdx 
type p to show the existing partition and d to delete it
type p again to show any remaining partitions (if partitions exist, repeat the previous step)
type n to make a new partition
type p for primary partition 
type 1 to make this the first partition
hit enter to use the default 1st cylinder
type +750M to set the partition size
type a to make this partition active
type 1 to select partition 1
type t to change the partition filesystem
type 6 to select the fat16 file system
type n to make another new partition
type p for primary partition 
type 2 to make this the second partition
hit enter to use the default cylinder
hit enter again to use the default last cylinder
type w to write the new partition table
Type umount /dev/sdx1 to unmount the partition
Type mkfs.vfat -F 16 -n usb /dev/sdx1 to format the first partition

"Alternately you can try mkfs.vfat -F 32 -n usb /dev/sdx1 (doesn't always work)"
Type umount /dev/sdx2 to ensure the partition is unmounted
Type mkfs.ext2 -b 4096 -L casper-rw /dev/sdx2 to format the second partition
Remove and Re-insert your flash drive
Back at the terminal, type sudo apt-get install syslinux mtools
Type syslinux -sf /dev/sdx1
Restart your computer, remove the CD and boot back into Windows

Using Windows to prepare and move the files to the USB Stick:
Create a folder named USB on your computer
Download UBconvert.zip using this link - http://www.pendrivelinux.com/downloads/UBconvert.zip
Now, extract the files to the USB folder
Move the Ubuntu  ISO downloaded earlier to the USB folder
Click fixu.bat from the USB folder (follow on screen instructions)
Move all files from the ubuntu directory to your memory stick
Reboot your computer and set your system BIOS to boot from USB-HDD or USB-ZIP. Also set the "Hard Disk Boot Priority" if necessary.

You should now be booting into Ubuntu Linux from your USB drive!

How to share drives between linux and xp installed on a same computer


More info will be needed, but linux can access NTFS with read and write, nowadays.

Which linux flavor are you using?

If you are in linux you should be able to access the XP part of the harddrive. In ubuntu you would goto places, then home folder, on the left there are quick links, one should be File System. Many folders are listed once File System in choosen and you should look for the Host folder. That would be the root of the HD for the NTFS "XP" drive - You will see program files and the windows folder, etc...

This maybe different if you are not using Ubuntu, but I can help with manually mounting the drive if need be. Linux is great! =]]
