Question about SanDisk 2GB Cruzer Micro SDCZ62048A10 Hard Drive

3 Answers

SanDisk 2GB Cruzer Micro - Not Working I have a Dell Insperon 1501 Laptop; and for the past year and a half I have been using three SanDisk 2GB Cruzer Micros for file storage. As I do everytime I use the USB, I safely removed the SanDisk Cruzer Micro earlier this morning then, when I went to use it again this afternoon it did not register in My Computer or light up - I tried it in all 4 ports, to no avail. I used my other two SanDisk Cruzer Micros and tried them both in all four ports and they worked in each port. What is wrong with this paticular SanDisk 2GB Cruzer Micro? Why was it working just fine earlier and now it is not regersting? Will I be able to get it to work again if not, will I be able to recover the files from it? I have been searching the web all night, and so far to no avail. I apperishate your time and help! Frusterated SanDisk 2GB Cruzer Micro user in Utah...

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Your described problem indicate a possible hardware issue. There are only 4 terminals/pins ina SUB device. The two at extreme ends are for GND and B+5 while the two at the middle are for DAT+/-. For your particular concern, you would be interested with the two terminals/pins at the ends especially Pin#1 which is the Vcc (+5). You would need a continuity tester to determine if there is contact, meaning does the pin still connect to the electronics internally of the SanDisk 2GB Cruzer Micro. Of course the thumb/flash drive must be opened up to expose the PCB.

In most instances it would only be a cold solder or a loose connection and re-application of a soldering iron should do the trick. Might as well do cleaning of the 4 pins. A flattened cotton buds would do or better yet scrape the terminals a bit to remove corrosion.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

I'm afraid that the scandisk might have become corrupted or the hardware inside has failed and that is why the computers are not registering or recognizing it.
If that is the case, the information inside the scandisk is gone, unless you can de-solder the memory IC from it and install it on another identical scandisk.

    Does the computer recognize it when you plug it in?

Cruzer isn't working after a while


Hi

Thank you for your query

If you have tried it in multiple machines then unfortunatley the pen driver has burnt out. This is not to uncommon, Sandisk pen drives do come with a 5 year or a lifetime warranty, so please contact them for a replacement/refund

I hope this has been useful

SanDisk Micro Cruzer reduced from 2.0 GB to 1.0 MB when reformated


Make sure you check to see if the File System is FAT32 instead of FAT or NTFS, this way you can have your 2GB back.
Try reformatting using FAT32.
