Trouble Opening a Secured USB Key
I recently bought an iMAC desktop computer after years of using a windows based computer. I have 2 Verbatim USB keys containing photos which were loaded on my old computer. One key, which is not passcode protected opens immediately when inserted into a port on the back of the computer but the other which is passcode protected does not. Instead, a V-Safe 100.exe icon appears in the public zone window. When I open this I get a script page which says this program cannot be run in DOS mode followed by many lines of indecipherable script. Any help overcoming this problem would be greatly appreciated.

You can't run Windows executables on a Mac unless you happen to be running Windows in something like a VM or through Boot Camp.

The simple solution here would be to find a Windows machine and copy the files over. Do you have access to a Windows machine?

Many Thanks
Yes, I still have my old windows based computer out in the garage. I'll dust it off today and do as you suggest. Thank you very much for your help
