Well this time is different for some reason. I installed Chrome os, it worked fine, and when the weekend was over I was going to format it again and put my school work on it. The HP Utility refused to do anything because it said it was Lock Protected or something. So I tried doing a format through CMD, creating the active partition and stuff. It wouldn't format the drive. The drive shows up in Windows 7 Disk Manager as a Removable Disk, but it doesn't assign a drive letter to it. I right click and all options are greyed out, so I can't assign a letter to it, delete, shrink or create partitions. I can Format it but the Windows format thing won't format it either.
I tried some other program, can't remember the name, I'll check when I get home, but it done basically the same this as windows disk manager.
So what can I do? Any more tips on how to get this thing working again? I love this pen drive, sooooooo shiny and nice. xDD and expensive at that.
