I just bought a Verbatim travel drive at Office Max. I used the drive at home on my PC, created some flipcharts and saved them to my travel drive. When I went to open it again, it asked me for a password - I had owned a different brand travel drive before and never had to do that, but I figured it out, and created a password, and was able to open it again and retrieve my data.
I am a teacher, so I then took my Verbatim to my classroom, inserted it into my MacBook laptop, but it will not let me open it. It comes up with some screen I do not recognize, never asking me for my password, only showing some gray boxes with the titles "desktop" and "VSafe100Vista." It won't let me get my info.

Im not sure what computer you have, but whenever I use an external hard drive on my computer, an icon either shows up on the toolbar, I dont think in your case thats happening or you would have obviously seen it, however if you have a start or home button on your toolbar on your regular desktop location then you can click to open your computer menu e.i. control panel, word, games,...etc.. look for your "computer" file, click to open, then look for "Hard Drives" or "Devices and Storage" also check and see if anywhere in those menus if there is a "Removable Devices and Storage" tab, if you find these menus and verbatim 53018 doesnt show up in any of your menu tabs then try creating a file on your computer and saving it to your hard drive in the "Save" file location, if its connected properly then you should see a message screen that asks you which location would you like to save your file, it should list all possible storage locations and hopefully Verbatim 53018 is listed.
use the source (pc/Mac) that created the data to remove it. you will need to re-format to get it to work on the machine you are currently trying to use. (personally I always remove all partitions and format to "fat" (remove factory) this will make the drive work on Mac as well as pc)
no solution but same problem. when I bought I erased everything on it and after some time use it protected itself. In my opinion because it has open pinouts one side wet finger may cause protection bur dont know how to unlock
goto Control Panel, administrative tools, Computer Management, Disk Management, If it pops up a new disk install wizard follow the directions in it. If not then find the new disk that has no partition on it, right click on that drive to create a partition, then right click on the drive to format it, if it hasent done so already.
