Toshiba 32 GB Flash Drive and locking software for Ubuntu

I bought a 32 GB Toshiba Usb Flash Drive, which comes with a lock. Works great under Vista, but if I stick in my Ubuntu desktop-driven, the files on the disk can be viewed or copied or deleted, so the software that comes with the drive is pretty useless as collateral.

Any suggestions please?

Hi Gumnut,

What Toshiba flash drive you exactly, because there are different models on the market? I m not owner of this flash drive but for as far as I know Toshiba doesn't support Linux, so this software will not work on Linux, so the reader isn't locked.

You can also contact Toshiba. I found an email address on the Toshiba memory product page: > Service & Support

Just write an email and you can get an official response! :)

  • How do I backup on my remote Toshiba or a flash drive

    I can't select a remote control for the backup.  I don't see even what is on the files, because they come empty, which I know is not true.  This computer is new, but programs should be the same!

    I'm not particularly computer literate, but performed this task on my old computer, so don't understand the problem.  The only available backup method is 6 CD.

    I suggest avoid you the Windows backup program and you get a good commercial backup program. This forum meets for a windows problem reports. I know that I was very impressed when I tried it. Three I'm familiar with and like Norton Ghost (which I use for 8 years no 1 problem), Easeus Todo Backup free, you can download it on and Memeo, which has 30 day free trial and you can buy it for $29.99 - you can download it from . You can get Ghost for almost nothing (like me), if you look at the sales.
    The March 2012 issue of PC World has been very high on the program FREE of Easeus and CNET.  From my experience with a variety of configurations, I must say that I am very impressed.  As Ghost will support up to a network drive and it will create a bootable CD for when your PC does not start.  See comment by CNET of it to;1#editorsreview .
    CNET has a lot of reviews of backup program to;sideBar .

    Some of them are free (the last time I checked there over 300), some have free trials (more), and some are buying only (more than 200).
    External hard drives are the best for backup. You can get a 500 GB one for about $65 a 1 TB for about $80. You can also buy a flash drive of 32 GB for less than $20.  It is the best insurance you can buy ever!

    I hope this helps.  Good luck

  • SanDisk Extreme USB Flash Drive and SMART failure

    I just got 3 64 GB SanDisk Extreme USB Flash Drives and all three show SMART failures to reassign bad sectors. I struggle to believe that all three could be bad on first use. I use a program on a Mac (SoftRAID(4)) to certify all drives prior to use, including the SD cards and USB keys. I've never seen a failure so far.

    Readers see the successful certification but present a SMART failure.

    What is a disk problem or a SMART question or what?

    Thank you


    I agree that it is unlikely to have failed on the first use. Most likely, it is a problem with the SMART attributes. IIRC sandisk can't CHIP for this product so it formats without error, and data can be copied onto the discs with success, I wouldn't worry too much on this subject.

  • is there anyway that I can simply download a VPS Windows version on a disk or a flash drive and reinstall the OS in this way?

    Original title: Windows Vista Edition Family Premium Situation!

    So, my desktop came with Windows Vista Home Premium, which I didn't know until about five minutes when I tried to use a password reset and it came with an error message. Being a little smarter I have myself give credit, I found that the password reset I used (I had gotten my laptop) has been installed only for Windows 7 because it is the operating system on my laptop. I have no idea if the office came with a disk recovery or not, since my mother bought the display instead of in the box as most of the people get it. I can't get to the desktop because my mother has forgotten his password and is the administrative account and this is the only account available. I decided that I need to reinstall Windows Vista Home Premium to the computer but I don't want to buy a version of it, if I can't, anyway I can just download a Windows VPS on a disc or flash drive and reinstall the OS in this way? Or do I absolutely have to buy a new version of Windows?


    There is no available legal vista download.

    And you make a reset disk on that machine, not another machine and make you before you forget the password, not afterwards.

    If this is not applicable, you must reinstall the operating system.

    "What to do if you forget your Windows password"

    "If you forget the administrator password, and you do not have a password reset disk or another administrator account, you will not be able to reset the password. If there is no other user account on the computer, you will not be able to log on Windows and you need to reinstall Windows. »

    Microsoft prohibits any help given in these Forums for you help bypass or "crack" passwords lost or forgotten.

    Here's information from Microsoft, explaining that the policy:


    You can contact your computer manufacturer and ask them to send you a set of recovery disks.

    They should do this for a small fee.


    And if you have never received a recovery disk when you bought your computer, there should be a recovery on the drive Partition hard reinstall Windows how much you bought your computer.

    The recovery process can be started by pressing a particular combination of the key or keys at startup. (Power on / start)

    Maybe it's F10, F11, Alt + F10, etc., depending on the manufacturer.

    Them or us ask the right sequence of key.


    Some manufacturers have more available Vista recovery disks.

    If this happens, you may need to try this instead:

    You can also borrow and use a Microsoft Vista DVD, which contains the files for the different editions of Vista (Home Basic, Home Premium, Business and Ultimate) must be installed. The product key on your computer / Laptop box determines what Edition is installed.

    Other manufacturers recovery DVDs are should not be used for this purpose.

    And you need to know the version of 'bit' for Vista, as 32-bit and 64-bit editions come on different DVDs

    Here's how to do a clean install of Vista using a DVD of Vista from Microsoft:

    And once the operating system is installed, go to your computer manufacturer's website and get the latest drivers for your particular model or laptop computer.

    Not an answer to your question, but let me point out the following:
    unless you have very little RAM on your computer, ReadyBoost is
    useless and will do nothing to improve your performance. Use of the

    Looks like you may have a virus or other malware. Get your updated antivirus program and start safe mode.  Note that some viruses can hide from your normal antivirus program, so you really need to scan mode without failure.  To enter in Safe Mode when you turn on first, press F8 on every seconds until you get the menu, and then select Safe Mode.  Then run a complete system scan.

    If that suits him fine. If this is not the case, use system restore to go back to an earlier date at the beginning of the problem.  To run system restore, click Start-> programs-> Accessories-> System Tools-> system restore.  Click on the box that says show more restore points.
    You can check the corrupted system files.  Open an administrator command prompt and run SFC if the above does not help. Click START, and then type CMD in the search box, right-click on CMD. EXE, then click on run as administrator. Then from the command prompt, type sfc/scannow.
    Finally if all else fails, you can look at the rather cryptic system event log.  To make, click Start-> Control Panel-> administration-> event viewer tools.  Once in Event Viewer system log-click and scroll entries looking for these "error" with indicator see if you can find guidance on where the problem may be.
    When you get your system in good working condition, I invite you to back up your system up to an external hard drive and it puts regular periodic updates.
    I hope this helps.  Good luck.

    It is therefore impossible for me to uninstall.

    I downloaded the 64-bit driver appropriate and installed, but that did not help: Windows does not recognize the existence of the device.  I guess that, until the messed up bad software is uninstalled, I can't install things right.  I managed to uninstall the good driver, but the wrong software is still there.  It appears in the list of programs in the Control Panel, but can not be uninstalled.

    So, how one uninstall when this message?
