So i see a claim that you do not have to install software and i cannot see how one enters any code as there is no keypad. Anyone with more information on these than the manufacturer is willing to share?

Bud:
I recall you get a pop up dialog when you insert it , where you enter the password. Or it installs as a drive but all you see is a  small executable that you have to run and enter the password, then you can see rest of data. Cant remember exactly, i had a 16 GB one some years ago.

Simon:
Ah right, that's why it's not Linux compatible. I kind of like the idea but wanted to give linux a go again at some stage so I am torn.

If the Kingston part is correctly listed on the eBuyer link, then it can be used on Linux - according to the data sheet https://www.kingston.com/datasheets/dtvp30_en.pdf

I think there will be a Linux mountable image on the small partition, or the software can be downloaded from Kingston.

Simon:
Well I'm not using linux any time soon and i only need 4GB to hold the private data like passwords. I've ordered a 256GB for general data that is not sensitive.
