How can I partition a USB drive?

I want to partition my SanDisk USB flash drive in multiple partitions. I can’t use the old Lexar BootIt program to flip the “removable bit”. Is there any other way to partition a USB drive?

    Bootice is a very powerful partition and MBR tool, it works with portable or internal drives. It is portable and requires no installation.

    Hello, if you are using vista/windows 7 you can use disk management to partition your drive.  If you are planning to do it this way, I would format the disk first.  I thought I would show you the following first:

    Here is another option on how to do it:

    u can use windows built in partition creator if using windows 7 search for partition in the start menu.
    if using ubuntu use disk utilities which give u lot more options to partition ur drive in different file sysetm.
