Will not work unless you have write access to the usb drive
6 January 2015
Summary: A lot of corporations do not allow write access to cd or usb drives. This is to prevent data theft. At my company we are allowed to read from these devices and this is what I needed the drive for. I wanted to bring files from home to work for read only purposes. You can run the software on this usb drive without admin access but it tries to write something back to the usb drive when you do.
Summary: Tried the drive last week. It's definitely amongst the most pleasing flash drives I used. I'm surprised flash drives evoke that kind of emotion, actually. Overall - a very pleasing experience that I have detailed in an in-depth review here - http://goo.gl/rVcA6y
Summary: I have a couple of these, and they work very well; performance is good, you won't know you're encrypting. The newer models have an option for opening read-only, which is nice to have. The only problem is it needs 2 consecutive drive letters (in Windows). And i have at least one (Windows 7) computer that gets confused if i try to use 2 of these sticks at the same time.
Summary: This product was received as expected and works as advertised. My research surrounding competing products was well worth the time. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for this exact solution.
Summary: Package states that it works with Linux 2.6. I tested it with Linux 3.2. in the form of Xubuntu 12.04.3 LTS. When I plugged it in, it auto-mounted as a "CD" to /media/DTVP. fdisk does not see it, so I don't know what you are supposed to do if it doesn't auto-mount. There are binary blobs there for initialization, login, logout, and password reset. There is also a pdf manual there. Just run e.g.
Summary: It drove me crazy that my wife would commute with a regular thumb drive that contained personal documents and information. This encrypted thumb drive was set up on a Mac and works perfectly on a PC. Well done!
