I made a few pcs using barebones Foxconn nano machine listed below. They came with these mini usb sticks preloaded with setup software. They have two partitions, one with the preloaded software that's about 2.2 gigs (properties showed it as cdfs type) and one blank partition with about 1.4 gigs of free space. Is there anyway to delete the preloaded software part and recombine with the free partition?  Thanks

I ran ChipGenius, I believe I picked the right part out of all that was listed and got the following

 

 

Description: (USB DISK CD)

Device Type: Mass Storage Device
 
Protocal Version: USB 2.00
Current Speed: High Speed
Max Current: 200mA
 
USB Device ID: VID = 13FE PID = 4127
 
Device Vendor: USB
Device Name: DISK CD
Device Revision: 0100
 
Controller Vendor: phison
Controller Part-Number: unknown
 

 

 

I went to phisons site and tried the first program "getinfo", and that got me the following info

From here Im just unsure if there is any other program listed on that page that could format the protected side.

You can set the number of partitions,

Convert partition type as a removable disk,

making ZIP / HDD startup disk. And a CD-ROM boot disk.
U disk can be divided into two partitions, including partitions and public safety district.

Public partition can be set as a removable disk and CDROM boot disk.

Support PS2251-50/03/61/38 series controller chips.

The chinese page is very complicated to find the download link so in order to help all who wants Phison ModeConverter 1.0.1.5   (Page says Chinese version, but I can confirm it runs in English in my PC.)   This is the direct Download link:

http://ap.upan.cc/pl...cfd46e4b938bc78

 

Downloaded using Firefox and Avast free last edition, no complain about any malware

 

All  my Kingston sticks use Phison controler as far as I found when I cheked them using ChipGenius 4

 

Best Regards

I wanted  to do the same for the Windows 8 USB stick Dell send out.  Vendor ID is Toshiba (0930) and chip vendor is Phison  (I think the Product ID was changed after I formatted it).  The flashboot.ru site said that the util to use is recovertool_v2.43.exe but I couldn't find the download.  Googled and found posts that suggested using Silicon Power Formatter.  http://flashboot.ru/files/file/383/ did the trick and I was able to low level format it.
