8gig voyager.. boot & write-protect?

Recommended Posts

I already have three 4GB Cruzer micros but I want one drive that can hold a DVDrip as a sneakernet ;) So I'm looking at the Voyager 8GB.

 

(1) It can be used as a boot device on those systems whose BIOS supports that option, right?

 

(2) And almost as importantly does it offer a physical write-protect switch?

 

 

When I use my flash device as a boot tool or otherwise to disinfect systems I don't want to worry about cross infection... physical write protect switches seem only available on questionable quality devices... do/will any of your flash USB drivers offer that (soon)?

 

 

thanks

A: Yes, there are many thrid party utilities available to make a flash drive bootable. http://www.google.com or http://www.snapfiles.com is where to start!

A: No I am sorry there is no way to manually write protect the drive. However there are many third party utilities to write protect the device again, http://www.google.com or http://www.snapfiles.com is where to start!
