Try using a program called TrueCrypt. I've been using it for about half a year, and it works great. It's also free, and works on Windows, OS X, and Linux. You can password protect your entire drive, or just a partition level of it, or even just a file level of it. You can even set it so that it dismounts the drive and requires a password after X amount of minutes, so that if you walk away and someone else comes up and tries to look into it, they'll be locked out.

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.

How to remove a write protected from a kingston 2gb pendrive


There is technically no write protection on these units and the fix is longer an d more costly than the unit is worth and often does not work anyway. there is scads written about this problem and most are bunkum and never solve it!

Throw it away and don't waste your time trying to fix a $10 unit that is going to cost $30 to fix + your time at whatever is the going hourly rate in your country of origin.

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

I have lost password


The password was set to protect your memory-card.
All you can do is to "shred" the card, and then throw it into the local landfill.

Newly bought 2GB DataTraveler only show 1GB capacity


Did you read the emanual that is on the Kindston's website for the DataTraveller? When you use the password protection program, it logs you IN to another partition you created when you started it the first time. It logs you off of the  normal drive partition and in to the password protected partition.

Both exist on the same pen drive but can not be accessed at the same time. Try logging off using the same program or if there's such a logoff shortcut anywhere on the pendrive, yo should be back to the normal 2GB partition.

HTH,
