Default Getting rid of extra "CD" partition on flash drive?

Like U3, except it's a GoldRock stick. Diskpart and GParted both failed miserably, any ideas?

Remove/Replace non-U3 CD Partition from USB drive - Hak5 Forums

They seem to fix it in a couple of roundabout ways.

I'd try digging through this thread, looks like 3 years worth of people helping each other remove the CD partitions on flash drives.

Jinx, Yami.

Should be an option in the U3 settings to remove it that way...

Here's info on SanDisk's site:

But it's not actually U3 software, that's the problem.
