This is a common problem with some thumb drives as they can confuse the bios.It is good practice to remove flash drives before you shut your box down unless they are for Ready Boost and reinsert them after your O.S finishes loading when you restart.There have been issues with data loss on some of these drives when left in during boot up.

When i plug my 4g cruzer micro usb memory stick nothing happens the cpmuter dosnt read that it is plugged in


Try a different USB device on each of the USB ports on your computer.
Hopefully, all your USB ports are working correctly.

Try a different USB port on your computer.
Hopefully, the SanDisk will be detected on one of the ports.

Try a USB port on a different computer.
If the SanDisk still is not detected, then spend $10 to buy a new 4GB flash-drive.

I am a student in school, and I am not to computer savvy on Flash drive.. It did not come with any instructions on how to use it. It is a Cruzer USB 2.0 Flash Drive (4GB) Can you help me with step-by-step...


  • Boot up your computer and find an open USB port. These are small, rectangular ports typically on the sides or backs of laptop computers, or on the fronts or backs of desktop towers.

  • Plug your flash drive into the USB port. The drive will slide in only if it is turned in the right direction, so if you have trouble inserting it, turn it over.

  • Make sure your computer sees the flash drive. It should launch a menu, letting you know that it has found a new storage device. You can choose an option from the menu or close the menu if you don't need to immediately access the flash drive.

  • Install the flash drive's driver if your computer doesn't recognize the flash drive. The flash drive's packaging should include the manufacturer's website address. Open your Internet browser, go to that address, and download the flash drive's driver from the site. Install the driver on your computer. After that, your computer should be able to recognize your drive.

    You can scan your flash drive attempting to repair boot record or use a flashdisk recovery tool if you have importanta data in it.
    If not you can format your flash drive.

    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!

    How to use flash drive


    Cruzer Micro is an USB external memory where you can store files.
    It is automatically detected and installed on all Windows OS from Windows 2000 onward, same on Mac OS and recent Linux versions.
    All you have to do is plugging the device into USB.
    After the flash drive had been automatically installed , it will be displayed under Computer as an external disk.
    You can copy and transfer files using Cut, Copy and Paste functions, or Send to function in windows, or the file manager, depending on the OS used.
    In Windows, before unplugging the memory from USB , it is better to turn off the computer or use the 'safely remove USB' function located near to the clock, on the lower right hand corner.

    My USB cruzer 4GB has suddenly stopped working


    Since you say you have tried on several computers, i am afraid to say your USB is dead, if you have warranty you should take it to the shop you bought it from.
