One of my flock passed to me a memory stick called Istar-8.4 Gb which has a built in security software.- it appears to have got 'itself' locked and when the soft ware screen display comes up the 'unlock' button and password field remain greyed out.
This is of course a Windows item- and as I run Ubuntu- there is nothing I can do to poke around.
Fruitbat for the Tech salsa link - this may prove useful

Thank you for yours but I am not particularly interested in opening the item via Ubuntu
The memory is owned by a Windoze user- that is what I am trying to ascertain.
But will test the Ubuntu route - you never know it may happen to somkething of mine- one day.
The Scandisk for example only allows 3 attempts to open it, if the Istar-8.4 Gb has the same type of security it will then lock up. I think, as has already been suggested by Rawprawn, it will have to be Re-formatted.
