My U3 drive won't start and I get this message...

"Failed to map a drive letter for the U3 smart drive. To release drive letters, disconnect a mounted volume that is displayed in the My Computer view, and insert your U3 smart drive again."
There are no mounted drives in My Computer, so I can't disconnect one.
When the drive is plugged in,after giving me this error message, Windows Explorer sees the small, 4 mb partition containing launchU3.exe",autorun.inf,and the Launchpad.zip compressed folder, but the other partition on the drive is not seen or shown. Since Windows sees this first, small partition as a CD-ROM drive, it doesn't allow me to do anything with it- it's invulnerable to deletion or modification of any kind it seems. Clicking on launchU3.exe gives me the above message again, of course.
Now.. I can't even uninstall the darn thing because I can't get Launchpad to open. Anyone able to help me here? I have not been able to find this problem addressed anywhere...
I just want to get rid of this U3 mess and use Portable Apps, the ones that work.
