Sansa dosent make the cruzer so im asumming you mean the sandisk cruzer, you'll need to install some software to it in order to do so, unfortunatley it will only work in a windows environment, some drives come with the retai lsoftware on them, U3 for example, you may also beable to secure it with windows xp encryption and/or compresion tools, Try downloading and installing the free version of folder lock, not sure if its limited to a time trial or not but other software is out there, try searching for portable apps or flash drive security, Short of buying a new drive this is the only way to password protect it, that i know of anyway, be carful thought some windows pc's will not let you use a password protected removable media unless you are an administrator or have sufficient privileges on that system.

Help How can I unblock my sandisk cruzer

Dear Customer, Plz Flow this instruction i think solve you problem.
Reformat the drive:-
  • Right-click the SanDisk flash drive within "Computer" and select "Format..." Enter a name for the drive, select your desired format (FAT32 is typical for flash drives). Click "Start" to format the drive. This, unfortunately, will erase everything on the drive. Any data contained will be lost along with the password protection. Once reformatted, the drive will be fully accessible.

I cant find my sandisk curzer 8gb on my computer and it keeps flashing no matter how long it is in the usb drive. HELP me find my pictures please!

Check under the 'Computer' folder, that is the only place where it should appear. If not,
  • It probably is a problem with the USB port
  • It might be blocked by your computer's security program

Dear Team Today when i try to use my CRUZER U3 (8GB) I GET MESSAGE "you have reached the maximum number of failed password...

Each U3 smart drive comes with a pre-defined number of login attempts. When you have only 3 attempts remaining, you will receive a warning message to prevent losing your data unnecessarily.
SanDisk does not have any method to bypass the password security feature on Cruzer U3 flash drives. SanDisk has not built in any back door or password reset methods. If the password feature is enabled and you exceed the number of incorrect password attempts, the drive will lock. Once the drive is locked there is no way to unlock the drive or gain access to the data stored on the device. You can only select the format feature, which will perform a secure erase (drive wipe) and data recovery will NOT be possible. U3 Cruzer flash drives which are password protected use 128bit AES encryption for data security

How do i set up the password protect thing on my cruzer micro 4 GB ... please


Plug your flash drive in and launch the .exe file that you will find there. It's probably called launchu3. Once you do that, then you will get a red box on the bottom right of your screen with the Cruzer name on it. Click on that, and you will find the "Security" section. The password setup is in that.
