    Promotional USB Flash drive?

    How can you change the properties of a usb flash drive? This thing comes up as a 2 drives, a CD drive and an additional USB drive. Mind you, I am not losing sleep over this, I just want to learn from this. How can I change the properties on it to stop it from coming up as 2 drives? I know they did this for me not to be able to erase their data, but I love a challenge. TIA

    BTW I am running win7 64bit home premium.

    I'd go to manage computer, disk management...delete both partitions, create one single new partition, and format it.
