Question about SanDisk Cruzer Micro 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive

1 Answer

My 8gb micro cruzer flash drive has been unformatted.

I was reloading a PC and i left the flash drive plugged in. Before i realized it I had already partioned it. Now when I try to access the flash drive It says drive F is unavailable or unformatted. Please formatted and re-insert. I dont care about the data I lost, except for the U3 Software that came already installed on the flash drive.
Please help me.

    I placed my flash drive in another computer and it wiped out all my software as well, as if it had a virus. Now what?

I)let me suggest i ur able the flash drive icon when you go in desktop or my computer then right click on that drive and click the option format and follow instructions, if you are able to format successfully, then no worries if formatting is not done.....


ii) then try to keep your windows'xp or vista cd in the cd tray and restrat system and follow the procedure formating system(i'm not saying to install or reloading a pc), when u reach a position where u see all the partition(like c, d ,e drive ... with memories), u will also see the flash drive partition along with hard-disk partion separately...

now click on the flash drive partition and press the button D to delete partition and follow instruction after do this , press C to create partition and u will see that a letter(e, f..) will be given to our flash drive....
now quit xp (by pressing ESC, donot proceed loading XP or vista) and now restart system and i think ur flash drive will work.....

My 8GB SanDisk Cruzer when plugged in lights up, but it's not detected, both on Windows and on Mac, I don't know if it's still fixable... :(


Try reformatting your thumb drive. Here's how to do it on a Mac:

**THIS WILL DELETE ALL THE DATA ON THE DRIVE**

1. Open Finder
2. Applications 3. On the left column, you should see your thumb drive. Click on it.
4. Click on the "Erase" tab near the top
5. For "Format:" select "FAT32"
6. Click on the "Erase..." button

When trying to use my sandisk removable media on any computer, i am told the drive is unformatted and must be reformatted before it can operate. i already have valuable data on this media and don't want to...


I would try it on another computer first. See if you can plug it into a friends, at work or even someone's mac and see if it recognizes. If it does, simply transfer the files to cd's or dvd's. Hope this works.

Sandisk Cruzer 8gb Error


Make sure you are logged in as an administrator. I'd also try the thumb drive in a different computer just to make sure the problem isn't with the thumb drive itself. The drive could also be unformatted, or formatted with a filesystem for a different platform that can't be read by XP.
