    same here!  my laptop was accidentally set on its side and the drive poked into the couch, and apparently the connector bent, so it doesn't work.  any suggestions?

    I accidentally bumped into the flash drive and it slightly bent. Now, when I put it into the port, it lights up for a split second, and that is it.

    I have so much stuff on this flash drive. I am dying!

Check on another system, if still no response then data cannot be recovered. How ever you can use software RxStudio to check

When i plug my 4g cruzer micro usb memory stick nothing happens the cpmuter dosnt read that it is plugged in

Try a different USB device on each of the USB ports on your computer.
Hopefully, all your USB ports are working correctly.

Try a different USB port on your computer.
Hopefully, the SanDisk will be detected on one of the ports.

Try a USB port on a different computer.
If the SanDisk still is not detected, then spend $10 to buy a new 4GB flash-drive.

When i insert my pen drive it appears.but when i click open "this operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer".how can i solve this problem ?

Myself have a Cruzer Contour (4GB) also, I happen to meet this error when use it on one of my client notebook. It seems that a antivirus/anti-malwares software blocking the "Autorun" program been execute, in order to prevent wide spread viruses came from pen drive information sharing.
(Sorry.... cannot recall which antivirus software...)

Some how the Sandisk Cruzer is carrying a build in program called "U3 Luanchpad", which also happen to using "Autorun" approach. Very high chances you might caught in this situation.

Please perform a virus/malwares scan on the thumbdrive. if USB happen to be found nothing related to the "Autorun" after scan, and able to use on other PC/NB environment (which not the same anti-virus amd anti-malwares been used). It will be pretty sure the problem lies on the software I mentioned in your PC/NB.

The filesystem appears to be corrupted. Try right-clicking the drive's icon, going to Properties, Tools and Check Disk. If that doesn't help the partition that holds the data may be unreadable, and if that happens try asking a data recovery service if the data is important.

San Disk Micro Cruzer 4GB

Hi there,

Try plugging it in to a different USB port on your computer. Make sure the connecter on the Cruzer is clean and there's no dust inside.

Also, try plugging it in on a different computer.

If none of these work,
I'm afraid it's a hardware problem and there's nothing that can be done about that.

Hope I helped!

Sandisk crezer 4GB micro wont work

Try this,
Note:I assume you are on win XP.

Right click on my  computer and click manage.
Now on left side please select Device manager and look on the right side if you have any device that says "Unknow Device" or any device that is showing an Exclaimation Mark. If any of this exists then right click on that and uninstall. After this unplug your Flash drive and restart your computer and try inserting flash drive if it works or not.
If not, again go to device manager and expand an option that says "Disc Drives". Please check if it shows anything related to your Cruzer Flash Drive. If it's there, then go to Disc Management that will be there on left side of this same window. There, you need to look for your Removable disc and right click on it and click change drive letter. Now choose a different drive letter preferable one of the last alphabets like Z. After this click OK and now try going to my computer to check if it appears or not.
Moreover, if none of these solutions work please get back to me with some more info like if you have U3  on your Cruzer that comes preinstalled on your flash drive and the version of your OS.
