ACCIDENTLY DELETED MY LOCK
Just google "rescue my files"
Lots of sites are offering software to recover deleted files, or even files from a formatted drive.
Be aware, if you did write anything on the drive after formatting, it will decrease the chance of and the amount of files you can rescue.
Most sites offer a trail version wich you should use first, to see if there is still something to rescue. To my knowledge there were some good freeware programs, but not sure they are still there. I use a paid version, since I deleted a drive by accident

How can I bypass my own password?
A password supposed to save guard your drive. What good would a password be, if you could override it?
There are programs on he net, that could unlock a password protected file or drive, but only as long as the password is simple. That means just a few characters. As long as you don't have acces to the programs the secret services of the world suppose to have, you won't be able to access your jump drive. Sorry

Won't download to my computer
I'm not surewhere it goes wrong, but please ask someone else if you can use their computer to download your pictures. Or if you have an other card, check if you can make pictures and save some from that card, before you lose the pictures you really want to save.
On your card you should check all golden connections if nothing like dust is on one. And only AFTER YOU DID SAVE the pictures, try to format the card in the camera before reusing. But there always can be an error in your computer or in the USB connector.

How to get the pc games to the removable disc(J)
It is not completely clear if you mean large PC games or if you mean small PC games.
By small PC games I mean games similar to the games that come with Windows and that appear in the 'All Programs -> Games' folder. Such as 'Free Cell', 'Hearts' or 'Solitaire'.
By large games I mean games like 'World of Warcraft' or 'Mortal Combat'.
Also, do you want to install the games on your Flashdrive or store them there?
If you want to store a large game on your flash drive. Place the CD/DVD with the game on it in your CD/DVD drive and insert your Flashdrive in a USB port.
Open 'WIndows Explorer' or 'My Computer'. Locate the CD/DVD drive that you inserted the game disk in (most likely your D: drive).
In the 'Edit' menu select 'Select All' and then in the 'Edit' menu select 'Copy'.
Then locate the Flashdrive in 'WIndows Explorer' or 'My Computer'. And in the 'Edit' menu select 'Paste'.
While this will copy the files from your game's CD/DVD disk to your Flashdrive you may or may not be able to install the game from your Flashdrive.
You can use this same procedure to copy small games to your Flashdrive from your Hard Drive.
You will need to know where on your hard drive they are located. And they may or may not run from your Flashdrive.
Also you may be able to install and run games from your Flashdrive, When you run the Setup program from you game disk you will usually be given the option to select a alternative location to install the game.
Select your Flashdrive at that point and it may install correctly to your Flashdrive. If it does you should be careful to always use the same USB port or the game won't run.
Hope that helps.

How to connect sandisk wireless flash drive to a tablet without a usb port?
If it's Bluetooth / Wifi, you have to pair them first.
Are you 100% sure it's a flash?
If it has a usb port, then it could be a bluetooth or Wifi (wireless communications connection) dongle, not a storage flash drive.
A bluetooth dongle will usually have the double W symbol similar to a spiky 8.
If Bluetooth / Wifi:.....
USB has 4 pins - outer 2 are power to the device, while the inner 2 pins carry data traffic only.
Therefore a BT device, Wifi and a flash storage drive need to be connected to USB for powering its circuit board and relaying data.
Try this if BlueTooth:
Switch ON bluetooth on both devices (flash may have a button / switch, or not), most just use "Remove Device" "Safe to Remove" then yank it out to switch off (as no 5V USB BUS power = 0).
Plugging in powers it up. It's functions are controlled via PC's BT menu.
With BT Flash plugged in, go to your computers device settings or the taskbar may have a BT symbol (like two face-to-face W's).
After switching computer BT on, select "search for devices" or similar, depending on your OS.
It may find several BT devices in your area.
Other BT devices such as Mobile Phone can also find a computer dongle by using the external device's menu to "search" while computer is made "visible" (also vice versa).
