Reloaded vista, now...........

Had to reload vista and now my password protected disco lite flashdrive won't work.The password box does not appear when the drive loads.

Can anyone please advise?

Does it need any special drivers, like here.

Thanks for your interest. I read the pdf on the linked site, and it appears that if I download the replacement drivers the flashdrive is formatted and I will lose all my files.

From what I can see , it will only format when you select how much space on the drive you choose to have as a " private folder " as you have this/these already you won't need to format .I have to add I have never used these types of drives before so am only going on what I have read in the relevant ,pdf .

Ashrich, thanks for your interest and my apologies for the delay in replying.
However I have solved the problem I changed the compatability from Vista to XP and the password now comes up. I had forgotten that when I originally installed Vista I had to swap compatability for the flashdrive. I rcently had to reinstall Vista and forgot. DOH!
