Question about SanDisk 2GB Cruzer Micro SDCZ62048A10 Hard Drive

USB flash drive wipe out

I was currently re-installing Windows 2000 Pro while I left my SanDisk U3 micro titanium 1.0 GB USB drive in the USB ports in the back. After installation and configuration, the computer erased all the files on the drive. Also, I am told to format the USB drive but the GUI and command prompt wont let me format. Is there any way, I can restore my files or format the drive? I've checked the recycle bin and nothings there.

Re: USB flash drive wipe out

I went to the Sandisk website and they actually have a bunch of how-to videos on there that will help you out with your problem: As for getting your information back, you would need special recovery software in order to do that. Here is a link that might be able to help you with that:

We can fix it -- and recover the data (provided it is recoverable -- which it generally is). If we don't get your data back, we ship the drive back to you and you pay nothing. We've been recovering data for over 16 years and are successful about 85% of the time.

Cruzer micro 1.0 GB


The Cruzer Micro flash drive either uses a proprietary operating system to function and load its set of utilities that include encryption, etc. or it doesn't... most of them do. Without this intact you drive won't function and be recognized. The Operating System is called U3.

Select this link to download the San Disk format, read/write check utility for your flash drive. It will also report back the need or not for the U3 Launch Pad (to be recognized and run in Windows).

Once you have run the utility and it has offered to format your drive from scratch again, if need be, to get it working as it was, and you've been told the drive supports or requires the U3 Launch Pad select this link to reach the download page and choose between the Titanium or Titanium Plus, download install the appropriate U3 Launch Pad operating system.

As you may already know, your flash drive and all San Disk products have a five year warranty. For what these drives cost today the postage alone to send it in would come awful close to the purchase price of another one. But, the choice is yours.

Me, I'm looking at the Cruzer Voyager 8GB to replace my 2GB drive as the Voyager is shock proof and water proof and has been field tested for several months now. Its available at here for half the price as when it first came out. Its selling for $59.99 and there is a $20 mail in rebate that makes the final cost even sweeter.

I hope all of the above information gets you going again and has fixed your problem. Please don't forget to rate this as fixed. I'd get your 1GB drive straightened with my solutions and then get an 8GB Voyager at some point.

Is the account that your tying to access the drive with an Administrator account? If not, Log in as Administrator and try to access the new drive. If you ARE using Administrator privileges on the vista machine, the problem lies in the U3 smart driver. Try downloading and installing the drivers for the XP SP2 os on scan disks website, If vista rejects the install package off of the scan disk website, let me know and i'll extract the drivers and build an install for them for you.
