I have two 16gb Ultra flash drives. They are working fine; except ... Windows 8.1 sees them as hard drives. That prevents using the Ultra as a portable boot drive. I understand there was a period when SanDisk made the change that causes this because of Microsoft's 8.1 compatability requirements. The practice was later discontinued.
Can I trade in the two drives I have for ones that are not picked up as hard drives?

Really!! As a portable Windows To Go drive or another OS, like Linux? Some older boot apps don't support the Fixed USB drives but I think Easy2Go does. Have you tried it?
