Hi I have one of those sandisk u3 cruzer mem. stix and I haven't use it for a while, recently I tried to log in but I could not remember my password. Is there a way that I can recover my password without formating? Please let me know soon because I have very important pictures of me and my wife in there that I want to print out before our anniversary. Thank you very much for going through this with me, my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org

If this is the U3 SanDisk Cruzer....U3 drives present themselves as two devices.
One of them appears as a read-only CD drive that contains all the **** programs and the other is the writeable USB stick part. It comes with two partitions on it, one for data, and the other called "U3 Partition" which is read-only.
I would recommend plugging your Cruzer into another computer. It's possible that your computer has corrupted or incorrect drivers for the flash drive. This is one cause of the yellow alert in Device Manager. If you move the flash drive to another machine and it works, you can save your data and make a backup copy. If your Cruzer doesn't work in a different computer (I would try at least 2 other working computers), it's possible that the flash drive is faulty.
Is the account that your tying to access the drive with an Administrator account? If not, Log in as Administrator and try to access the new drive. If you ARE using Administrator privileges on the vista machine, the problem lies in the U3 smart driver. Try downloading and installing the drivers for the XP SP2 os on scan disks website, If vista rejects the install package off of the scan disk website, let me know and i'll extract the drivers and build an install for them for you.
