Pocket Fuzzies?
Get a bright light and look into the USB connector of the Cruzer. It is possible that there is lint, paper bits, cookei crumbs, etc in there and that is your problem. The outer 2 connections of the USB is DATA and the inner two Power. B/C it is able to flash,you are getting power... but the data lines may be dirty, covered, bent, etc.

Clean it up and try again. Flat toothpick, small ty-wrap or Proxident (dental/braces) brushes work well for this - DO NOT use anything Metal!! It will scratch the connectors and vastly shorten their life (they are GOLD plated)

Short of that, goto HP site and get their USB format tool (get it here: http://files.extremeoverclocking.com/file.php?f=197 ) and try reformatting... if that doesn't work, it is hosed and only I can fix it so let me know ;-)

Reformatting HCS725032VLA380


Is it your primary hard drive ?
Reformat hard drive to NTFS Windows XP allows you to easily format the hard drives with its inbuilt utility. Formatting the hard drive would forever delete all the files stored on it. There are two ways in which you can format the hard disk partition - from My Computer and from DOS. You cannot have a NTFS partition with allocation unit s above 4096.

Click on "Start," and then click on "My Computer." Right-click on the disk partition to format and then click on "Format." Click on the "File System" drop down box and select "NTFS." Click on the "Allocation unit " drop down box and select an allocation . It is recommended that you select the "Default allocation " option. Click on the "Start" button. b> Format the Partition from DOS b> Click on "Start," and then click on "Run." Type "cmd" in the 'Run' dialog box and then press "Enter." Type "format drive_letter: /FS:NTFS" at the command prompt and then press "Enter." Replace the 'drive_letter' here with the letter of the drive that you want to format (for example, format e: /FS:NTFS). For help on advanced formatting options, type "format/?'more" at the command prompt and then press "Enter." Keep pressing "Enter" as you read on. Hope it helps

You can specify the format type on the option page for format before you press the format button when displaying the drives in "My Computer"

Additionally, you can CONVERT an existing FAT or FAT32 partition to NTFS. Follow the steps below for Windows XP:
  1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Command Prompt.
  2. At the command prompt, type the following, where drive letter is the drive that you want to convert: convert drive letter: /fs:ntfs For example, type the following command to convert drive E to NTFS: convert e: /fs:ntfsNote If the operating system is on the drive that you are converting, you will be prompted to schedule the task when you restart the computer because the conversion cannot be completed while the operating system is running. When you are prompted, click YES.
  3. When you receive the following message at the command prompt, type the volume label of the drive that you are converting, and then press ENTER: The type of the file system is FAT.
    Enter the current volume label for drive drive letter
  4. When the conversion to NTFS is complete, you receive the following message at the command prompt:Conversion complete
  5. Quit the command prompt.

Accessing a folder.


This will sound off the wall, but we had something similar to this happen with my last laptop, where it was "access denied" in lots of areas, and we would have to find little backdoor ways to get into control panel and document files. The problem with our computer was that it had previously crashed, and we had rebooted and reinstalled the xp, but didn't have the registration number, so it would run ok, but to get into all those access denied things (which you eventually need to get into) we had to come up with our registration number.
Did it prompt you to enter the product key when you re-installed it?
