Sandisk Cruzer Micro U3 memory problem

My Cruzer holds 4 gb
I had no previous problems..now once I've deleted a file from it..it hides someplace not in a file..
It currently shows 4.1 g
Free 1.1 g
Total 3.8
Used 2.7 g
Usage 68%
I am running Linux Kubuntu..no problems what at all until now..I've run a virus scan which shows nothing..because it's looking for files..
Is there a way to delete the 68%? So I can regain the memory..and stop it from using up the memory with deleted items?

Any ideas?

Did you try uninstalling the U3 software?  when the u3 launchpad comes up, there should be an options link, look in there for the uninstal button.  Once you take off U3, you can't put it back on.
if you want even more space, AFTER UNINSTALLING U3, take everything you want to keep off of the drive, and put it on your computer.  make sure you remember where it is.  then, in My Computer, right-click the drive, and click Format.  for the File System box, select FAT32, make sure Quick Format is checked, then click the format button.  Make sure before clicking that button, EVEERYTHING YOU WANT TO KEEP IS OFF OF THE DRIVE!  YOU WILL BE UNABLE TO RECOVER YOUR DATA ONCE YOU FORMAT THE DRIVE!
Hope these tips help

SanDisc cruzer micro won't format


Is this one of the cruzers with the slidey USB connector, and what's called "U3"on it that loads automatically?

If so, you should not need to format it as such, but if there is a lot of the U3 software on it, that can bog up the drive with unnecessary data. You can also remove the U3 software altogether, however, this is a permanent solution - make sure you will not ever want this functionality from your drive first before you remove the U3 software.

Adding a 8GB MICRO SD card to the Sansa e260


I read somewhere that a 4 GB Micro SD card is the largest you can put in the SanDisk Sansa E260 expansion slot. It's maximum capacity is 8 GB, with internal + external memory put together. This is from what I've read. Hope this helps.

THIS FOR SURE HELP!!!!!!!Hi...I find the answer...Push and hold rec button and button for holding...And it will start..if your mp3 (a samsung yp-u3 mp3) says log val=0x10008018 or something, click and hold the record button and once it begins to record, press the back arrow/button (symbol in the top right corner). your mp3 should work (play music and such) now. to fix your mp3 and get rid of that log val message, you need to go to settings, then system, then format. format your mp3. unfortunately this will delete all your songs and files on the mp3, but the mp3 player should be fixed and the log val message wont appear anymore.

hope this helped..

Depending on the type of drive you have, and whether you have lost your data, here are some references.
For data recovery (there are lots out there):

For drivers, etc., which could help:

These, of course, are aside from going to sandisk.com for assistance. A number of their products carry extended or lifetime warranties, and their customer service folks should be able to help by phone, chat or e-mail. Thanks for rating FixYa!

4 GB micro sd and the Sandisk Sansa e250R...


If the 4gb micro SD is a high capacity SD (it will say micro SDHC on it) your player may not be able to read SDHC cards, my sansa can't because it's the 'older version' it will read 2gb and below micro SD cards though (it sucked when I found out because I had just bought a 6gb micro SDHC)

4GB micro sd card.


According to what I've read, you can double the original memory, but no more than that, so the max you can have on a Sansa e250 would be 4 GB (2GB internal memory and 2GB external memory). I also read that the micro SD cards holds
music only-no video.
