Question about SanDisk 2GB Cruzer Micro SDCZ62048A10 Hard Drive

1 Answer

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.

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:

I have a Sandisk 8GB cruzer. When I insert it into port the U3 yellow box doesn't come up so I can't set a password. What do I do?

There is a known problem with the U3 software and Windows 7. Are you running Win 7?
Sandisk has upgraded and compatible software available here:

My SanDisk 1gb flash drive says i only have 1 try left at trying to unlock it. I didn't even know i had locked it. Can you please Help?

This will get the drive back, but you WILL lose the data. If you need the data. I do not know the answer. Repost your question to go to Sandisk site below

'.............U3 smart drives come preinstalled with the U3 Launchpad which emulates the Windows OS start menu, and controls program installation and hence facilitate the portability of software. However, if you would like to use the USB flash drive or memory key as a pure normal USB mass storage device, or you don't use operating system that U3 supports (i.e Windows XP and Windows 2000 operating systems), or you simply feel that U3 Launchpad and applications have bugs such as unable to eject due to locked files in use, consent on privacy and automatic installation of U3 software and pop-up etc, you can uninstall and remove the U3 Launchpad from the USB storage device.

To remove and delete the U3 Launchpad, you need to download U3 Launchpad uninstallers or U3 Launchpad Removal Tool that remove the U3 Launchpad and re-configure the USB drive to be a single mass storage USB drive. Currently, U3 Launchpad uninstallers are only available for and must be run on Windows XP or Windows 2000 machine. When uninstalling, the U3 smart drives USB device has to be plugged in with U3 Launchpad running.

U3 Launchpad Removal Tool for SanDisk USB U3 devices can be downloaded here,

WARNING: U3 Launchpad removal is irreversible. You won't be able to install U3 again. Beside, backup your data before begin uninstallation process as ALL data will be erased.

UPDATE: It's impossible to reinstall U3 LaunchPad........."

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.

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.
