    So I have a 1GB Lexar JD Firefly flash drive that I use for various things, and was reformatting it last night. This and that happened, and it was removed during a Zero Out Data wipe. Now I have a Flash drive that has no partitions and brings up a window that states:

    The disk inserted was not readable by
    this computer.

    Initialize, Ignore, and Eject are my options.

    I've tried to re-erase it, partition it, and have ran it through USB Prober, but get nothing. The drive it self mounts, but there isn't a partition, and I also can't fix permissions or repair it. Any way to fix it?

    That's a windows program...

    This is the Mac OS X 10.6 forum, and you're telling me to use a windows program. Really now?

    Sorry he made a mistake. No need to be all rude about it.
