I'm not sure if you can set a password for the entire drive, but I know you can put it on folders. In windows I would guess this would be in properties, but I'm not completely sure since I run a mac. On a mac you would set it in the get info menu.

Use something such as FreeOTFE - http://forums.xisto.com/no_longer_exists/ . It stands for Free On The Fly Encryption. It is free, obviously, and is compatible with windows, Mac and linux systems.

Another solution is TrueCrypt, which is also free. However, I don't know if it has on-the-fly en/decryption support.

Hey you should try the software provided by transcend for their own product.It generally let you access your pendrive in a specific way and also help you to protect the pendrive with password.Byetheway i am also having a transcend pendrive and they provide all sort of information just back of the cover.You should check it out better.

Use Folder Lock. Its a software in which you can out a password to any folder you like. Even if you take your pen drive to a computer where it has not got folder lock, you can open or lock that folder with the password. It can even encrypt data in folders and then put a password.

It is one of the most sophisticated tools to hide data from prying eyes.

Here is the site.

Hi, .u3.com. It's the only software that I know of that lets you do exactly as you asked. It only works with Sandisk USB drives. Otherwise, Truecrypt is still the better choice...it just takes a minute or 2 to learn.

There are several encryption tools. I use the Encryption and Decryption tools of Glary Utilities. But I have never used this function to set a password for pendrive. Maybe you can have a try. I think it is worth.
