Ok so I acquired another flash drive so far in college and it has a CD-ROM partition I can't seem to get rid of, I can make Win 7 Pro ignore it and Linux doesn't acknowledge it, however my MBP sees it all the time, I would rather get rid of it as it is unseen by XBOX 360's and a few computers due to the CD-ROM partition I suspect. While I would like to find a Mac solution I do have Linux, Windows 7 pro 64-bit an OS 10.6 to use.

What brand flash drive is it? Some companies like Sandisk have that stupid U3/partition crap on it. They make a specific tool to get rid of it.

It's a generic flash drive so there is no official tool, it's a 1 GB flash drive with a CD-ROM partition on it that has a couple files.

Sadly the spammers are here to stay without any admins around to clean up.

Its sad to see, as this forum was one of my favourite haunts, but I really do get fed up with spam. So my visits to this forum are a lot less frequent than they used to be. I also don't post as often as I find I get fed up seeing the spam posts and just end up clicking "Mark All Forums Read" and give up reading the new posts. I know it's me being stupid but I hate clicking on spam links as it feels like I'm condoning what the idiots stand for. I'd rather just move on than click on more of them.

I've also noticed a lot of the other long standing members aren't around as much these days either Sad

I have found it frustrating to visit these past few months, as well. Wish there was some way to get even with these people doing all the littering.
