  • copy hidden USB drive

    Ok, i wanna know if it possible and if so how to copy a hidden USB drive. I have a USB drive that is unknown to the computer but its used by a program i use. I am unable to explore it but it is there. It shows up in Disc Management as a Unknown 16meg device.

    Thanks.

    Can you explain a bit more?
    What is the program?
    Does it show up OK on other computers?

      16MB or 16 GB?
      Is it by any chance a dongle holding some sort of HASP key or something? If so, I doubt you can browse its contents...

        its used for flashing an ECU on a car. Its 16MB. It wouldn't show up on other computers.

        I plug the computer up to the car run a program then the program needs the 16MB dongle to transfer info to the car.

          So does the program access the "drive" OK?

            Is the dongle required in order for the program to work? Sounds like the easiest thing to do is buy another dongle.

              yeah program wont start until you have the dongle plugged in. The dongle takes the car vin number so you cant use it on other cars. i want to try and duplicate this dongle so as i can make a few of them.

                I think that will be totally in breach of any license agreement -- please check with the software vendor
