Question about SanDisk Cruzer Micro 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive

2 Answers

My u3 cruzer is recognized on every computer after I insert my San Disk 16 GB into the USB port. However, on my desktop at home I am unable to launch the U3 after pressing on the icon in My Computer. Please advise.

    I have a similar problem. It requires an excessive amount (30 minuets or more) of time for the 16GB Cruzer to "attempt to load". I have also attempted to format the Cruzer drive with the hp USB Format Tool without success. I receive a message that the HP Format Tool cannot access the Cruzer drive. Does anyone have any suggestions?
    Thanks in advance.

My sandisk cruzer 4 GB pendrive ws working fine but now whenever i try to format\copy\cut it shows location 0 with used space 0 free space 0 what should i do


Your flashdrive usually shows 2 drives when inserted to your computer, one is the U3 drive and the other one is the removable disk drives. U3 drive is your separate partition for the U3 system and in order for you to store, copy, format your flashdrive, you should be selecting the removable disk drive, not the U3 drive. U3 is a read only memory drive that is responsible for your U3 to work (just like portable applications). Hope this helps.

Launchpad installer


If you are using Windows and have not formatted the drive or otherwise tampered with it.

Open the Windows explorer.
Plug the device in a USB port and wait for the computer to recognize it. After it is recognized the Windows Explorer will show two additional icons, one of them a CD-ROM.

Click the icon with the CD-ROM, and it will execute the U3 operating system. A small yellow icon with a U3 label will appear on the task bar. Right-click the icon on task bar and select the "Open U3 Launchpad". Point to the Settings button on the right side.
Right click that button and select the U3 LaunchPad settings

In the window that pop up point to "Autorun" button and click it.

San Disk Micro Cruzer 4GB


Hi there,

Try plugging it in to a different USB port on your computer. Make sure the connecter on the Cruzer is clean and there's no dust inside.

Also, try plugging it in on a different computer.

If none of these work,
I'm afraid it's a hardware problem and there's nothing that can be done about that.

Hope I helped!
Tom
