Re: [XPPro] Cannot access 2nd partition on USB drive

I tried Vista 64 bit and Windows 7 both 32 and 64 bit with the same failure. I then googled

Usb flash partitions

and found this utility they may solve your issue. I haven’t tried it yet.

I just tried it. It work on a USB flash drive. It failed on a SD card in a card reader.

Flash drives are large enough now that partioning them can be useful.

The page is gone when you click on the link. Luckily, a version of the page still exists in Google's cache.

Search Google for:

cache:www.lancelhoff.com/multi-partition-a-usb-flash-drive-in-windows/

I will try this trick later today and post back with the results.

EDIT: On second thought, if Windows reads the USB stick as a "fixed disk" then how can I do a "Safe Removal" when I wish to unplug the stick?
