Bonjour Claude,
If all you need is to wipe out your data no matter what operating system the software runs on; and if your flash is seen as an IDE device, than I would recommand you using DBAN http://dban.sourceforge.net/
It uses the linux kernel, but you don't need to know linux to use it. All you need to do is to create a bootable floppy (using rawrite on windows or dd on any unix system), disconnect all your hard drives (those you don't want to wipe out) and follow the instructions.

DBAN lets you choose from different wipe methods including the DoD 5220-22.M Standard.

Good luck.
