Question about SanDisk Cruzer Micro 4GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive

2 Answers

Why can't I put a 7gb video on my 16gb Cruzer

I wanted to put a 7gb avi file on my empty "14gb of free space" 16gb cruzer and windows is telling me that there is not enough disk space on my cruzer. I even tried a 4gb avi and got the same error. I tried on a computer with Vista Ultimate and on another with Xp Pro and got the same results. Is there any way to fix this?

I think I know what your problem may be. Check to see how the drive is formatted. Drives formatted with FAT32 cannot transfer files 4GB or larger. Try reformatting the drive to NTFS.

1. Open My Computer
2. Right click on the drive
3. Select Format
4. Under “File System” change it from FAT32 to NTFS
5. Check quick format
6. Click start

I have not tried this yet but if that does not work try this:

1. Right click on My Computer and select Manage
2. Click on Storage
3. Click on Disk Management
4. In the right pane right click on the drive letter assigned to the San Cruz
5. Select format and choose NTFS

I hope this helps. Good luck!

How do I create more space on a sandisc 16GB USB


To create more space, you can delete the files that are on the drive. If you are not concerned with any of the files that are already on the drive, you can right click on it in My Computer and select format. From that window, check "quick format" and then hit format. That will completely wipe the drive and you should have most of the 16GB free.

I would like to transfer photos' from laptop to cruzer using Window Vista! How to do that?


Hello..

Insert the Cruzer and allow your computer to acknowledge it. You will know this by going to "My Computer" and double clicking. You should see that the computer has assigned a drive letter to it. Double click that drive letter for the Cruzer. With that window left open, find were your photos are. Open the folder were the photos are located. With both windows open you can now drag the photos over to the Cruzer and drop them into the window for the Cruzer.


Good Luck

I have a cruzer micro 16Gb flash drive with 14.9Gb


Did you reformat as NTFS instead of the default FAT32? FAT32 can only transfer files up to 4.0Gb in size. If you reformat as NTFS, you can move larger files.

Loss of space on junk drive


With it plugged in, open the Recycle Bin on your Desktop and see if all your deleted files are in there.... if they are, empty the Recycle Bin & all your space will be freed up.

If that is not the problem, reformat the Cruzer and all your space should be available again.

If not, your Cruzer is defective.
