I recently bought a Sandisk Cruzer USB drive. Part of the drive (6.66 MB) is formatted with CDFS and shows as a CD drive.
Why do they do this ? Is it to protect the software on that part of the disk to trick the OS (Vista) into not overwriting or amending, because it thinks this is a read-only CD ?
Is the 6.66 MB significant. Apart from being associated with the Devil ?
How can I format a partition on a USB drive to be CDFS ?
Why would I want to do something like that myself on my other flash drives ?
I'm a programmer, so how can I leverage this new knowledge ? Any Ideas ?
