Question about SanDisk 2GB Cruzer Micro SDCZ62048A10 Hard Drive

1 Answer

My 2GB U3 Cruzer is not recognized by my Vista laptop

My USB flash disk came open after my laptop fell off my bed. My flash disk was on the side that hit the ground. After it came open, I looked at the board and it looked fine. I even continued to use it and it still worked. However, the next day, it would keep saying that it was not recognized, on many computers. Since that day, it has only worked once, which was for 2 minutes until it got accidentally bumped. I was wondering how do I get my files off? I do have the U3 password protection on.

SanDisk 2GB Cruzer Micro USB I/O device error


I would recommend plugging your Cruzer into another computer. It's possible that your computer has corrupted or incorrect drivers for the flash drive. This is one cause of the yellow alert in Device Manager. If you move the flash drive to another machine and it works, you can save your data and make a backup copy. If your Cruzer doesn't work in a different computer (I would try at least 2 other working computers), it's possible that the flash drive is faulty.

San disk Cruzer U3 doesn't initialize.


1. Download this tool:
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4040651/LLFTOOL.EXE

2. Format

(WARNING: After running this low level format tool,
the whole USB flash disk surface will be fully erased.
Therefore, data restoration will be impossible after using this utility!)

Cruzer micro 1.0 GB


Hello,

The Cruzer Micro flash drive either uses a proprietary operating system to function and load its set of utilities that include encryption, etc. or it doesn't... most of them do. Without this intact you drive won't function and be recognized. The Operating System is called U3.

Select this link to download the San Disk format, read/write check utility for your flash drive. It will also report back the need or not for the U3 Launch Pad (to be recognized and run in Windows).

Once you have run the utility and it has offered to format your drive from scratch again, if need be, to get it working as it was, and you've been told the drive supports or requires the U3 Launch Pad select this link to reach the download page and choose between the Titanium or Titanium Plus, download install the appropriate U3 Launch Pad operating system.

As you may already know, your flash drive and all San Disk products have a five year warranty. For what these drives cost today the postage alone to send it in would come awful close to the purchase price of another one. But, the choice is yours.

Me, I'm looking at the Cruzer Voyager 8GB to replace my 2GB drive as the Voyager is shock proof and water proof and has been field tested for several months now. Its available at NewEgg.com here for half the price as when it first came out. Its selling for $59.99 and there is a $20 mail in rebate that makes the final cost even sweeter.

I hope all of the above information gets you going again and has fixed your problem. Please don't forget to rate this as fixed. I'd get your 1GB drive straightened with my solutions and then get an 8GB Voyager at some point.

Regards,
Worldvet

Sandisk flash drive


Is the account that your tying to access the drive with an Administrator account? If not, Log in as Administrator and try to access the new drive. If you ARE using Administrator privileges on the vista machine, the problem lies in the U3 smart driver. Try downloading and installing the drivers for the XP SP2 os on scan disks website, If vista rejects the install package off of the scan disk website, let me know and i'll extract the drivers and build an install for them for you.

Sandisk flash drive


Vista has not been out long enough for any company to state that there product is compatible. I would check there website to see if they have updated drivers that will make the sandisk usb drive compatible. This may fix the problem!

U3 2GB Cruzer Micro wont work on my vista laptop.


Hi there, I found the solution (for all 4GB flash drives).

Initially when I plugged in my PQi 4GB flash drive with Windows Vista,
there was an error message involving " Can not find the drivers needed ... "

Simply download & install "Windows Vista Service Pack 1"
it is about 444 MB in size.
The whole process might take about 2 hours to install,
but it is worth it.
These are the links where you can find your download:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/windowsvista/bb738089.aspx
OR
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=090DEAF6-2EAA-4AAA-8B3B-2E199DB4A97D&displaylang=en

It works perfectly... good luck now...
