I would like to know why gparted doesn't see or touch the U3 partition. What address range is it using? How can it be read only, if I don't want it to be? The permission can't be changed! This is Linux, not Windoze!
Location: Somewhere inside 9.9 million sq. km. Canada
Distribution: Slackware 14.1, 14.2

Proprietary format / closed platform
The U3 platform is a "closed" platform / proprietary format, and unavailable for developers. SanDisk, the rightsholders for U3, ask for a 5% royalty from USB flash drive manufacturers who wish to implement the platform on their products.
