The drive I have shows up both in my computer. So U3 Launchpad could be j and the data could be drive k.

Have you tried any U3 password protection programs, Ibrahim? Also, when you plug a U3 flash drive into a PC, is there any way to bring up the drive contents in Windows Explorer, or must everything on the drive be accessed through the launchpad?

Thanks for the information you've provided so far.

Caroline.

Hi Caroline.

Yes, the U3 software is usable with a little learning with a screen reader as it mainly consists of buttons and popup menus to interact with the interface. The software should be the same across all u3 drives although I can't definatly vouch for this as I use a SanDisk drive myself although a contour model. You must remember though that in order to use U3, you must use the interface software known as the u3 launchpad and this is the only way of using u3, you can't run applications independently from the desktop or start menu etc as they aren't installed on your computer in the usual way if you follow me. Also, as Steve so kindly pointed out, u3 applications are especially designed to run on u3 drives only, they install, run and uninstall through the U3 launchpad. I apologise if this is a little confusing but once your using u3, you'll wonder how you did without it *smile*.

All the best and feel free to ask any more questions. as I am an active u3 user, if you like you can privately email me on ibrahim_gucukoglu@xxxxxxxx for further assistance and I'll do my best.

Hello Ibrahim,

Thank you for your reply. Do you know whether the U3 software is likely to be screen reader compatible? Presumably each manufacturer has their own implementation of U3, so this might be difficult to answer. I suppose, if I found it inaccessible, I could always remove it as you indicated in your message. It sounds as if it might be useful though, particularly the ability to password-protect the contents of the drive.

Caroline.

Hi Caroline.

Yes, U3 is a system for allowing you to install software directly on to your flash drive and then using that software on any computer you plug the drive in to. There are a great many U3 applications available ranging from password and data vault programs, antivirus utilities and the like to full blown business software programs such as word processing applications, email clients etc. The u3 software already preloaded on to your drive allows you to manage these applications, however if you want you can remove u3 by downloading the u3 removal tool from the support area of u3.com. I hope this helps you and by all means ask further questions and I'll do my upmost to help.

Subject: [access-uk] U3 Flash Drives


Hello,

I am looking to replace an ageing flash drive with something more spacious. Today I received an e-mail from Amazon advertising a SanDisk Cruzer Micro 8GB U3 Readyboost Flash Drive for £9.99.

I realise that Readyboost might be useful for increasing available memory in Vista, but wonder whether the U3 aspect of this drive would be likely to cause problems with Jaws. I haven't had chance to look at a U3 drive before, but understand they have some extra software installed which enables you to run applications directly from the drive. If this is problematic for Jaws, is there any way of removing it so that the drive would work as a standard USB flash drive without the U3 capabilities?

Thanks,

Caroline.
