What is the password for the new kingston USB DT109?


It is true that locking mobile storage devices, such as USB drives, with Imation Lock is an excellent way to protect your data.


However, using Imation Lock with a Kingston USB drive can create problems.

Learn how to unlock your Kingston USB drive so you can use it once again.


Ensure that your Kingston USB drive has been removed from your computer's USB port.

Start the Imation Lock software by double clicking the Imation Lock.


Plug in the Kingston USB into a USB port immediately after the "Please Insert the Device or Run This Utility as Privileged User" message appears.


Access your Kingston USB drive by clicking Start > Computer.

Double click on the device.


Start the Imation Lock software again by double clicking the Imation Lock.

Disable the password protection by clicking the open lock icon.


or


If you have password protected a USB drive or partition on your computer and have since forgotten the password, you will need to completely erase the drive.


Erasing and reformatting the drive will remove any password protection, software and data on the drive preventing you from accessing the drive.


The process is simple using Window's Disk Management utility.


Log into the computer as the administrator.


Open the Windows Start menu, select "Run," type "Compmgmt.msc" and click "OK." In Windows Vista and Windows 7, simply type the command into the "Search" field.


Select "Disk Management."


Locate the password-protected drive.

Right-click it and select "Delete." Confirm the action.


The drive will be erased and become unallocated free space.


Hope this helps.

My pen drive is not formated due to write protection


There is either a switch or a slider on the unit.
Set the switch/slider to "write-protect-off" to enable files to be written to the pen-drive.
