Unless it is a read/write disc, you will not be able to reuse it. If it is read/write, you will see the letters RW on the disc. You could put it in the computer and try and format it. Make sure that you format it and not another (hard) drive or USB on your system, because you won't be able to get the information back from a formatted disc.
The short answer is without the password, all info on the drive will stay encrypted and locked forever. It looks like you may still format it and at least get to reuse the drive. Formatting will erase EVERYTHING on the drive permanently. Here is some more specific information
Right click computer then left click manage. In next screen click on disk management and you will see your USB stick, right click it and delete volume then try to format it there. If still not working i think its life may be over. Cheers from Scott
Copy all your data into the computer as backup and format the disk with old data, this will completely erase the old data and u can now reuse them whenever you want to from the computer or you can write them into cd through your memoex cd-rw or sony cd-rw. thanks
Go to your control panel open up 'administrative tools' Open Computer management, then choose disc management instead of device manager. Make sure that you have the drives pluged in and connected before you do that. All connected drives formatted or not that are in working order should show up under disc management. If they are not showing up they are not compatable. Make sure that they are marked as active and format them if they need to be formatted. Do so by right clicking on the drive in the disc management window.
personnally I would not try this. If this is the only laptop you have. now if its just a machine you tinker with you can try it. but for functunality I would leave the keyboard intact incase you ever want to use the portability of the laptop.
