Remove/Replace non-U3 CD Partition from USB drive

125 posts in this topic

I recently received a USB drive at a career fair at school.  However, everytime I plug the thing in, internet explorer opens up the companies career page.  The drive appears to be using technology similar to U3 since there is an extra CD-ROM drive that appears on the computer and it contains all of the autorun stuff.  Could someone please point me in the right direction to removing this from my drive?

I might be able to help you  depending on what brand your flash-drive is (or rather : the controller-chip)

If you post the VID/PID and other info about your drive I might be able to provide you links to the necessary tools .

You can get the information by downloading this nice tool from nirsoft :

Hmm, VID 1976 doesn't appear in any of the vendor-lists but

PID 6025 appears to be this controller : CBM2080 Flash drive controller http://www.chipsbank.com/en/product/xx/cbm2080.htm

according to THIS post  http://www.911cd.net/forums//index.php?sho...st&p=116954 the tool to

reprogram it should be available somewhere, unfortunately the download-link is dead .

But since the manufacturer probably has changed at least the VID the best way to make sure is to disassemble the drive (carefully)

and read the markings on the controller-chip .

------Tools like this are not meant for "normal" users. I have a machine setup ONLY for such tasks as installing them may or may not

mess with your standard usb-drivers . ABSOLUTELY NO GUARANTEES - USE THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK - and RTFM first !!! ----

EDIT : I found a collection of production-tools for USB-devices on a Chinese geek-board and uploaded the CBM2080 tool

and the English manual here : http://www.wikiupload.com/download_page.php?id=35427

NOTE :  Some AV's don't like the file, this could be because of the Chinese characters OR it could actually be infected

so use at your own risk : http://www.virustotal.com/analisis/0bb166e...241f6493a177819

I will upload the entire collection later .

Thanks for all of your help. I opened the drive up and the chip appears to be a CBM1190. Do you have any tools that will work with this chip?

UPDATE:

I tried both the CBM2080 tool and the FlashDiskManager program in the links that you sent me.  Neither seems to recognize the drive.  Also based on the manual with the CBM2080 program, you need to have a special programming board in order to use the program.

I found your other post with a collection of production tools.  I used the CBM2090 tool (according to CBM's website the 2090 is pin identical to the 1190), and it let me reformat the drive and now the extra CD drive is gone.  I also think that with a little bit of fiddling it would let me put a custom autorun ISO on the drive so I could make a switchblade drive if I wanted to.  Very cool!  Thanks for your help.

I tried the U3 removal tool, but it didn't recognize it as a U3 drive, which is why I came here in the first place.  I had to use a production tool that IOSys uploaded in a different post.

I have a similar issue to this. The key sets up an auto run 'CD' with a presentation on it. Very annoying.

I've got the tools form this topic but can't get them to work.

The VID is 0204, PID shows as 6025 but the chip is ID'd as CMB2091

I've tried the CMB2080 and CMB2090 tools but neither seem to work. CMB2090 crashes when run on my XP box.

Any ideas what tool I need to remove the presentation?

I've a similar problem. I checked the info about my usb pen drive with usbview:

serial number: 000878

VID: 2008

PID: 2018

USB class: 08

USB subclass: 06

USB protocol: 50

I think the controller is MW6208 and I need UdTools 1.0.2.9.

The problem is these tools seem to be available only at a chinese site http://bbs.mydigit.cn/read.php?tid=4345, only members can download and to register you need an invitation code :(

I really want to get rid of this "automount cdrom" on my pen drive, can anyone provide me with the tools or an invition code?

Thanks in advance ;)

Based on the VID/PID it sounds like a Transcend-drive ?

They use Alcor-controllers in a lot of their drives, production-tools for Alcor

can be found here : http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=e...%3Fname%3DFiles

A good tool to identify your UFD's controller can be downloaded here :

http://www.mydigit.cn/mytool/chipgenius.rar

If a mfg-tool is available for your UFD it will even show a link to the tool.

Unfortunately the files are on a Chinese board that requires registration and "points" to download

but all the files are also available on the Russian board :)

Edit : If it IS a Transcend you might find something useful here as well :

The USB drive that I'm trying to format is branded only as CISCO and when I use the USBDeview tool, it says that the VID and PID are both 0000 and the description is just "2.0 USB Device".

Any ideas?
