USB Flash Drives (U3 Smart)
Question: Whenever I insert my USB Flash Drive into a Mac, it launches Toast.

Answer - Your flash Drive is U3 Smart.

Question:  What is U3

Answer - this software allows you to carry your files and your software on a secure USB drive.  U3 technology is only supported by Windows XP & Windows 2000.

Question:  Can I format my USB Flash Drive to remove the U3 feature on a PC?

Answer - No. When you insert it on a PC (Windows) it creates two new drives. A removable media partition as well as what appears to windows to be a CD drive. It is CDFS formatted and write-protected so windows won't let you write over it or format it. And it does not give you an option to repartition it in Disk Management either.

Question:  Can I format my USB Flash Drive to remove the U3 feature using a Mac?

Answer - No, Disk Utility can not remove U3

Question:  What do I need to know before uninstalling U3 Launchpad from my Smart Drive.

Answer - IMPORTANT: Removing U3 Launchpd is irreversible.  All DATA ON YOUR U3 SMART DRIVE WILL BE ERASED. Be sure to back up your files before trying to uninstall U3 Launchpad.

Question:  How do I delete U3 software from my USB memory Key (ex. Sandisk Cruzer Micro, Kingston Technology U3 Data Traveler, Verbatim Store 'n' Go, Intuix Smart Drive M300, Memorex MiniDrive )?

Answer - You need a U3 LAUNCHPAD UNINSTALLER.  U3 uninstaller is a software that removes the U3 Launchpad and re-configures the drive to be a single mass storage USB drive. It is available only for and must be run on Windows XP or Windows 2000 machines. Here is a link to dowload the programs. (Before running the program make sure your Flash Drive is inserted)
