    U3 setup does the install - Win 7 won't put the icon in the tray or execute the program when forced - reason: incompatible.

None of you forgot your password -- Sandisk admits to a bug in these drives that has been corrected in newer Cruzers.

I have cruzer 16gb i entered wrong password 3 times and it got locked i need access to data what do i do?


It doesn't look like this is possible. For your protection, SanDisk did not build in a backdoor or reset feature in the device.

Please see SanDisk's official statement on this feature:

I have a Sandisk 8GB cruzer. When I insert it into port the U3 yellow box doesn't come up so I can't set a password. What do I do?


There is a known problem with the U3 software and Windows 7. Are you running Win 7?
Sandisk has upgraded and compatible software available here:

Dear Team Today when i try to use my CRUZER U3 (8GB) I GET MESSAGE "you have reached the maximum number of failed password...


Each U3 smart drive comes with a pre-defined number of login attempts. When you have only 3 attempts remaining, you will receive a warning message to prevent losing your data unnecessarily.
SanDisk does not have any method to bypass the password security feature on Cruzer U3 flash drives. SanDisk has not built in any back door or password reset methods. If the password feature is enabled and you exceed the number of incorrect password attempts, the drive will lock. Once the drive is locked there is no way to unlock the drive or gain access to the data stored on the device. You can only select the format feature, which will perform a secure erase (drive wipe) and data recovery will NOT be possible. U3 Cruzer flash drives which are password protected use 128bit AES encryption for data security

I have micro sandisc 1 gb card .i forgot the password how to recover that.


I myself have several U3 cruzers and I feel where ya coming from. On U3 launch if you choose the "Forgot Password" option, It will format the drive and reset the password........ BUT! ! ! Despair not my fine Cruzer addicted friend.......
http://LC-Tech.comIt may cost money, But as I said I feel your Pain and I have been there, Contact those people and purchace "Recovery Pro" and any lost data can be retrieved.Another option I am wanting to try is using the U3 uninstaller, which backs up all the data on ur PC when uninstalling U3 and replacing it after. I am not sure if that will work, In theory, I think it might, But dont Quote me...... I can let you know once I try it.

When I plug in my sandisk cruzer micro 4gb, the option to opend it directly open up pictures, music, open the folder directly, etc. pops up and I exit out of that. Then when I go to my computer, the U3...


Copy all the data-files from the USB device to your 'C:' drive.
Then, delete all the files from the E: and F: drive.
Be sure to select/delete all the "hidden" files.

Now, your USB drive is back to its "factory" status.

How to download softwares to my sandisk u3 flashdrive


Hello,
As you may know your U3 Smart drive has a small OS that allows you to run Your applications on another computer. This OS shows as a CD-ROM icon on which you click to execute the LaunchPad (TheOS) of the Cruzer. In addition to that you have the icon of a regular drive. (Usually the Drive letters are consecutive G and H for exemple.) When you safely remove one both are unmounted at the same time.

Once the LaunchPad has been executed, it installs an icon on the sys-tray. When clicked, that tray icon opens a pop Up window, giving a menu of the applications installed and which you can run on the host computer, but from your drive (U3 Smart Programs on the left) and on the right various menu options
  1. to explore the drive,
  2. configure the drive(settings),
  3. add programs (to download additional U3 programs),
  4. and enable security. etc.

So if you want to download additional U3 Programs to run from you drive you use the Add programs (option 3 in the list above)
However, if you just want to put regular files on the drive (pictures, text documents, etc.) you do as you woul for nay drive: You drag and drop the files, not on the CD-ROM icon, but on the other drive. You can also use the Explore option (option 1 in the list above) to open the second drive to see what is in it, add files, remove files etc.

Hope it helps

Forgot my password. I have sanDisk U3 Cruzer Micro 4.0 GB.


I have this same device and forgot my password also. The only solution you can do is format the drive and reinstall the software that came with the drive. I believe it warns you of this when installing a password on it, that if you loose or forget ur password the device will have to be reinstalled. the site to obtain the software is www.sandisk.com

Please leave comment thanks.]
If you need help in obtaining the software just email me at delhielectronics@live.com
