Specs: Windows 7
Hello, I have a sandisk 16gb ultra backup flash drive, I got if on black friday last year. A few days later I cracked it open and plugged it into my computer, I decided that i would secure the flash drive with the U3 password and then BitLocker (I have win 7 ultimate). The bit locker process took an outrages amount of time but when it was all said and done i safely removed it and plugged it back in to see how it worked. When i plugged the drive back in my computer it didn't recognize anything was plugged in. It recognizes U3 but cannot run it. I tried to show hidden files and was somewhat successful in finding it but I am not able to format the drive because when i try i get a lovely message that says something like "drive cannot be found," It is rather frustrating. The only computer that has been able to recognize it is my dads which runs xp. I was able to put in the bitlocker to go password and look at the drive but couldn't run U3 or anything. I just want to format the drive and use it like regular with no Bitlocker, can anyone help? I know my way around a computer but this is rediculous. Thanks in advance.
