Default Use a USB drive? Is this possible?

Please Login to Remove!

I am new to the Blackberry, I have Pearl 8100 with a 2 gig Micro card in it. Is there any way to use it like a usb pen drive with out installing the software on the machine. I work on computers and it would be nice to be able to use this like I use my pen drives and have my utilities put on the 2gig micro card.
This would be something that would be very useful for almost anyone either by changing a setting on the phone or installing an application on the Phone that makes this work.

Thanks,
Doug

Thanks Thatzmister2u for the quick response. That is exactly what I needed to do and works the way I wanted. I have a device password setup and when I plug into any machine I have to put in the Device Password before it will load on the machine.

Thanks again.
