I have one of those Samsung Mighty Drives, it is a USB2.0 Flash Memory Stick that comes with a security application..."USB DISK Pro Security App. - v2.64.00".
Unfortunatly that software did not work right under Windows Vista.

I stumbled across a updated version of the Security application which is compatible with Windows Vista.

Updated version available, see:
Samsung Mighty Drive Security App v2.75

Actually i have found 2 different versions of this MFC Securtity/Format application,eg: 

  1. USB DISK Pro Security App. - v2.73.06
    UDP2736.exe
    This one enables you to format the drive as it would have a public and private partition that can be opened upon unlocking it with your password.





     
  2. USB DISK Pro Security App. - v2.73.01
    UDP2731.exe
    This version formats the USB stick so it would be recognized as Floppy Drive and Removable drive.
     

Download:
usb_disk_pro_security.zip

share the love!

I was in the exact same boat as WildBill. For years I had done nothing about it, but enough was enough. I Googled an updated version of the software and found this.
Thankfully it allows for a 0MB partition and after about 1 minute everything was back to how a USB should be - 1 partition.
Thank you for the d/l link and keeping it available for so long.
This saved me from sending the USB to Integral's warranty service, though they were very willing to help me even after purchasing the USB 5 years ago.

Have spent months trying to get rid of a security partition on a "Integral" flash drive .I have tried numerous programs partition adjusters re-formatters without seccess. Downloaded UDPv273 and ran program and like magic I was able to delete the security partition and resize the main partition.
Thanks again

Thank you sooooooooooooo much, you dont know how much of a headache this has been for me. Downloaded the software and recovered the files immediately.

Your driver to upgrade my Samsung Mighty Drive USB flash drive was very helpful. Thank you for that. I haven't tested it yet on my VISTA machine, but I have no doubt it will work.

@bleh, thanks for reporting the error , think i have fixed that issue
If i remember right i had no option to switch types very easily, but finally managed to achieve it. You have to remove the hidden partition and password and set the new (single) partition to it's full size (leaving 0.00 capacity for the hidden partition), then reformat, unplug and insert the device again. After i inserted the device again, i started the 2.73.01 version of this program, at this point the FDD + HDD option became available.
I also picked up a comment elsewhere, saying that some devices are manufactured slightly different and thus not have this capability.

(Ok, so I cleaned this of all apostrophes and single quotes, let s see if it works now:)
I just downloaded the files, and I can t get the 2.73.01 version to make Floppy+HDD partitions.
In fact, both versions of the program show the exact same behaviour, the one you described for 2.73.06. I get a "configure size" button , but no "To FDD+HDD" button with 2.73.01. This is with a 2 GB MightyDrive and XP SP2.The funny thing is that I had exactly the same experience with the same set of files downloaded earlier separately from another source (where 2.73.01 was described the same way it is here). No chance to create a virtual floppy for me (which is what I would have needed, I m not exactly interested in the secure partition).
What s more, one of the program versions managed to make all files on the stick invisible to Explorer and the size show up with less than 500 kB, even though I did not repartition it. Both the size and the files would however show up correctly after I inserted the stick into my old Win 98 machine (where I reformatted it).
As for the reports of people getting a "Please insert the device or run this utility as privileged user" error (I ve seen this reported as happening under XP2): I don t get this message under XP2, but I get it under Win 98.

Your comment system does not work, I keep getting error 80040e14, seems to crap out for apostrophes and single quotes.

I have a 2gb mighty drive and I want to increase the size of the secure partition, however the button for changing the size does not show up. I have tried copying the data off and reformatting etc. I have tried the original version of the software and both versions available from your site but still can`t get it to work, any ideas?
Sorry, ignore that, you need to disable the password then remove the disk, re-insert it and then the option shows up!

Mmm, are you sure it's a Samsung Mighty Drive? You can try to right click on the executable, from the menu shown choose "Run as administrator"


Posted by RvdH on Mar 26 2008 06:19
All I get is "Please insert the device and run this utility as a priviledged user". Tried all sorts without any luck.
