    I have a 4G Cruzer Micro and it cannot be installed or recognized as anything. It shows up in my device mgr as Other Hardware with an ! by it. I have tried everything. I am running Windows XP SP3.

    I have Windows XP. I placed the cruzer in the USB socket and it loaded
    the driver. The U3 stuff works fine (didn't want that). Wghen I removed
    the U3 software the drive disappeared. I cannot use it for disk storage
    as it is not in 'My Computer'. It is in disk management as drive E and
    everything says the device is 'working properly'. The light is on and
    staring, if not mocking, me now. I have tried other USB ports and it
    works on my laptop (XP).

    I have checked everything that's on the
    Scandisk website FAQ. It seems that there is an issue with my computer
    but I don't know what it is. The computer is running 2 hard drives and
    2 cd roms and one floppy disk. It's about 4 years old but the USB ports
    are the right ones (2.0) and it's running Service Pack 2.

Hi,
Try downloading the U3 driver, if you haven't already.
First plugin the sandisk to your usb port, and then check from Windows Explorer, does your sandisk cruzer detected? you'll get a new drive letter besides your local drive or named "removable disk".
If you do see it then just do format (you'll lose the U3), copy, store, overwrite it again and again as you like.
If you still need the U3 application, pls read this:
http://www.u3.com/support/default.aspx#CQ1

You possibly haven't installed the driver properly.
If a wizard that comes up as soon as you plug the device in, Just let it detect the device and then go to Control Panel, and System, and Device Manager, and double click on the device driver, or if it isn't there, double click on the unknown device with the yellow exclamation mark and hit the Driver tab, Install Driver, and choose the 'Let me choose the driver' option, and navigate to where you unzipped that driver you downloaded to, and click on the driver, wait for it to finish installing and reboot.

Let me know how you get on..
Good Luck!

How Do I Safely Remove Hardware


First off, some of those icons will never be removed, as they are necessary to be there for verification purposes. Safely Remove Hardware is one of them. Any time you plug in a device such as a flash card or external hard drive, devices that read and write data, they show up in this block. Since Windows does delayed writes to save time,l if you simply unplug these devices without letting Windows close out the write cache may cause corrupted files. Right clicking on the Safely Remove Hardware icon will cause a listing of attached devices to be displayed. Clicking on the device you want to remove (unplug) will tell Windows to close out the file cache and dismount the device. Windows will do this and them notify you that the device is safe to remove.

Now, regarding all those other icons that appear,such as OneDrive, volume control, and others, if you don't want them showing up in the taskbar, you can right click on the "^" caret symbol that expands the taskbar, then choose SETTINGS. This will bring up the taskbar settings menu. Scroll down the page to where is says "Select which icons appear on the taskbar" and select that. You will see a long list of possible taskbar icons. Turn off the ones you don't want to see display on the taskbar. This does not remove them from the system, but they will no longer display on the taskbar,

Hi.. the safely remove icon doesn't appear..and i cant safely remove my hardware even if i eject it still it appears on my explorer..if the driver id missing then why it can run on my computer and able to...


The safely remove icon just tells you when no activity is occuring to the flash drive or portable HD so that you don't corrupt data while its writing to the drive. It still shows up in the explorer because it is still connected. If you clicked Eject and it says it's safe to remove then remove it. It might even be safe to remove if you're sure the device is not being used at all.

Hello, I have an 8GB PNY flash drive. Recently, I plugged it into my laptop and it does not show a single file on the drive. It shows the drive is full when I go to properties, but there is nothing on...


Files on a flash drive canbe corrupted if it is not removed from the USB port properly.
Before removing the flash drive click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon andthen click on the flash drive you want to remove and then remove the flashdrive when the computer message says it is Safe to remove.
To restore the flash drive you need to format the flash drive, but you willlose the data stored on the flash drive.

How to copy a doc. file to the flash drive.


Ok. here is what you need to do.

1. Hook your flash drive to any of the usb slot in your computer.
see image below bcfce55.jpg

Wait for the system to read it. A green arrow icon will appear in the taskbar to show that a new removable hardware device is connected. After it successfully recognized, It will display a message " The device is installed and ready to use" at the lower right portion of the windows taskbar.

Click on My Computer a new drive will appear. It is usually designated as removable drive. On this drive you will paste the copied doc files. It is the assigned drive for your flash drive.

So go on., copy all the files you need to carry and paste it in the flash drive.

Be reminded also that before you unhook the flash drive from the computer, right click first on the green arrow icon on the taskbar and stop the operation. Click stop on the flash drive. This will turn off the remaining applications / readings in the flash drive and will prevent it from crashing and file corrupting.

I hope you understand.
Please give me some good ratings as this will help me too.
Thanks.
