Password protect USB stick
It seems like a simple requirement, yet after doing some research I'm finding it very difficult to find a way to password protect my USB sticks. I know some models like the SanDisk Cruzer come with built in software but would like to find something I can use with my existing models. Is anyone else finding that all that seems available are complicated and pricey encryption programs (which I have used before and dont work well)?

Is there not simply a program that will prompt you for a password and then allow you to view all files and folders therein, without the need for encryption?

I dont mind paying for one, but I'm not interested in lengthy encryption. Need quick, easy and secure access.

Surely in this day and age such a thing is available?
