Hi, I have a Sandisk USB drive, and because of a reason I have to make a CDFS partition on it, or at least make it seem like that to Windows 7. Is there a way to do that in Windows (Or Mac/Darwin) without any additional software?

No, you can't without special software often from sources that I would not trust and it only works on specific USB flash drives. I have not seen it used for anything but evil for years now.

I've been asked for help on removing them but never creating them. They can brick the flash drive and make it unusable and unfixable.

I just tried making one and of all the USB flash drives I have, only one no-name one I got 5 years ago allowed me to do it so I really doubt your Sandisk will work (I tried 5 different Sandisk drives USB, SD and micro SD).

If you don't mind, I am extremely curious why you want to make one.
