Your flash drive may be inoperable, but before we say that, let's try a couple of things.

1) Leave the flash drive plugged into a USB port, and reboot your system. Windows will sometimes have difficulty reading devices plugged in after it has launched.

2) Go into System>Device Manager>USB and track down that flash drive (as a device). Delete it from your system. Next time you boot and insert it, Windows will see it as a new device, and walk you through installing it from scratch.

Since the system won't recognize it, then you can't reformat it, so that takes away one good option.

Give those two things a shot, and let me know. Flash drives do go bad (pretty regularly, actually), so in the future, don't store critical information on one. Burn it to CD or DVD instead, and use the flash for simply transferring data from one system to another.

Cheers
Nick

Cruzer micro 4gb does not start on windows xp


If you are using Windows.
Open the Windows explorer.
Plug the device in a USB port and wait for the computer to recognize it. After it is recognized the Windows Explorer will show two additional icons, one of them a CD-ROM.

Click the icon with the CD-ROM, and it will execute the U3 operating system. A small yellow icon with a U3 label will appear on the task bar. Right-click the icon on task bar and select the "Open U3 Launchpad". Point to the Settings button on the right side.
Right click that button and select the U3 LaunchPad settings

In the window that pop up point to "Autorun" button and click it.

Click the button that will say Enable.
After that it will launch automatically whenever the device is recognized by a computer.

If the U3 launchPad is missing from the device you can download it from the SanDisk site. Here is the link. Download it and install it on your computer. Note:It does not launch on MacProducts or Linux.

My computer does not recognize the 4gb USB Flash drive when plugged. Truied on 2 separtate computers now. Windows XP operating systems.


Hi m_j_lester

Do the computers that you tried it on make a sound or give any indication that a new device has been plugged in? If not then it could just be broken. It's not uncommon for these devices to fail altogether and they have a shelf life of about 10 years (depending on how much abuse they get of course!).

If you need any more help then let me know.

Scott.

Flash drive


Hi,
What operating system are you running ??
If it,s windows 98 you,ll have problems, as they don,t like mass staorage devices, even with the drivers installed.
the other alternative, is to try on another PC And format it to FAT/FAT32 Or NTFS ( if your using XP )
