Question about SanDisk 2GB Cruzer Micro SDCZ62048A10 Hard Drive
When I plug it in, the light fades on/off.
I can not see the files.
I CAN see "u3 system" in 'my computer'
The launcher no longer loads.
It did this rather suddenly and recently.
Have not heard from Sandisk, yet.
I tried it in different usb ports and on different machines.
It has always popped up[and loaded until now.
All pc's run at least Windows xp, sp2.
Yes this is a easy fix. First try the USB drive in another computer you have never been too. IF it still doesnt work then you need to goto your main computer., then, reboot with USB out. Place USB drive into a 2.0 USB port, usually on front of newer computers, then wait for about a minute. IF the PC still doesnt recognize the drive, then, RIGHT click on the "MY COMPUTER" logo, then scroll down to "MANAGE",
This will open COMPUTER MANAGEMENT> CAUTION...do not click on anything other then what i tell you EXACTLY TO DO.
then carefully click on "Disk Management" on the bottom left tree box. (UNDER STORAGE HEADING).
This should open several boxes on the right side of the box showing your hard drive and other storage devices on your system, and LIST them in the upper box under the "VOLUME" heading.
Then on that VOLUME drive that shows your USB Drive, RIGHT CLICK on it one time. Scroll down to Change Drive Letters and PATHS. THen goto CHANGE button and select a letter you have never used on your PC before like the letter "Z" or "Y". then click OK and close everything.
THen go back to my computer like normal and your drive should appear normal and you should be able to access the drive.
If this doesnt work and you can still see the USB drive, you may need to reformat the USB drive as something may have corrupted the files? This is unlikely but only the last resort.
Let me know how it goes.

The fading light usually means that the drive is standing by (re: not being accessed - waiting to be needed). Does it ever blink quickly as though it IS being accessed? Perhaps when first plugged in?
There is a trick for when Windows systematically has problems allocating a drive letter for explorer:
Right click on My Computer icon and select Manage.
Go to the disk management icon in the Manage window that pops up. It should list all of the available drives as blue bars showing their capacities. Here you can right click on the usb drive (8GB) allocation and click "explore" or "assign new drive letter" or something to that effect.
If there is no sign of an 8GB allocation in the management window on all of the computers you try it on then there is likely a hardware problem with the drive.
