KUSBDTE Someone left a Kingston KUSBDTE DataTraveler Elite at my house and they are not going to come back to get it. I don't care about what data is on it but I was wondering if there's a way I can format it so that I can use it for myself. Right now my computer thinks it's a CD drive and that it's write protected. Thanks

Uh Oh. This one is going to be tough. Apperently this is built for security. So formatting it is going to be tough. IS there a switch on it? If there is, then switch it off. Then you should have access to the contents. If not, then I won't be able to help you. Sorry.

There is usually a little switch on the side of the device that enables write protection to stop you from losing all your precious data, slide it back and you should be good to go.
