Is this one of the cruzers with the slidey USB connector, and what's called "U3"on it that loads automatically?

If so, you should not need to format it as such, but if there is a lot of the U3 software on it, that can bog up the drive with unnecessary data. You can also remove the U3 software altogether, however, this is a permanent solution - make sure you will not ever want this functionality from your drive first before you remove the U3 software.

    some cruzers (the silver ones) also have U3 on it, these do not work well with some operating systems.

Mine did the same thing and stopped working when I took it to a Vista PC... when I brought it back to my XP it did not recognize it. In my case I could see the device but it says that I must reformat.

Go to Sandisk support and download / reload the driver for your particular device and it will reload the U3 software and drivers. It gave me an option to save my data first and I tried this but it came up with the format disk message from windows again.

Solution:

I used the sandisk driver from their support page to reinstall the drive this time I did not try to save the data. It only took a minute to reload U3 / Drivers and I have my drive back like new. I did lose the data but this drive was always for transport and never carried non-recoverable data anyway.

I am curious as to why I had trouble going to and from Vista... thoughts?

I added a 2gb mirco SD card to my Sansa e270 6.0gb player, but the memory is still only showing 10mb of the original 6.0 gb available for use. How do I get the Sansa to recognize and use the 2 gb mirco SD...


Hi,when you purchase a new micro SD card before use, youwill need to format the memory card so that you will be able to know the actual size of the Micro SD card by checking the details after formatting it.

After formatting the micro SD card and checking the details, if you still do not see the accurate size which is about 1.88mb or the about, that means the micro SD card you bought needs to be replaced. Not a good one.

Have a nice day.

I am considering purchasing a Sandisc Micro SDHC 8Gb card for my Sandisc E260 MP3 Player. Will this be OK?


Hello,

Highest capacity memory card for the e200 series depends on the firmware version.

Consulting the Sandisk page gives next information:
Sansa e200 - verify the version of the player. To check, go to Settings > Info.

For 01.xx.xx firmware (e200 version 1) - up to 2GB microSD cards
For 03.xx.xx firmware (e200 version 2) - up to 16GB microSDHC cards
NOTE: Firmware is not interchangeable.

I have a cruzer micro 4gb sandisk peen drive but it has not detecated by my laptop so what should i do?


Actually, your laptop hasn't detected your flash drive. Please make sure all of your software on the computer is completely up to date. Next, try plugging the flash drive into a different computer to see if it shows up. If it doesn't show up on a different computer, then try formatting it. Once formatted, try again. There is a possibility that the flash drive has gone bad, but just take things one step at a time.

Sandisk Cruzer Micro U3 memory problem


did you try uninstalling the U3 software?  when the u3 launchpad comes up, there should be an options link, look in there for the uninstal button.  Once you take off U3, you can't put it back on.
if you want even more space, AFTER UNINSTALLING U3, take everything you want to keep off of the drive, and put it on your computer.  make sure you remember where it is.  then, in My Computer, right-click the drive, and click Format.  for the File System box, select FAT32, make sure Quick Format is checked, then click the format button.  Make sure before clicking that button, EVEERYTHING YOU WANT TO KEEP IS OFF OF THE DRIVE!  YOU WILL BE UNABLE TO RECOVER YOUR DATA ONCE YOU FORMAT THE DRIVE!
Hope these tips help

Dropped my sandisk cruzer micro 512MB flash drive, computer cant read it now


I have had the same issue. Sometimes static builds up and discharges into the drive. Most USB drives are made to tolerate such problems, if it's fairly new and not obviously damaged outside, send it to sandisk for a replacement under the "poor workmanship" clause.
