Question about SanDisk 2GB Cruzer Micro SDCZ62048A10 Hard Drive
I've used this Cruzer drive for years without trouble... ever since removing the U3 software. I use it to move data between my home MacBook and my work Dell.
Last night, it was plugged into my MacBook, and as I turned my macbook a little, I knocked the cruzer against something. It slid sideways in the USB slot enough that MacOS gave me the "Drive Unsafe Removal" message.
Neither I, nor the Genius at the local Apple store could help. It doesn't even show up on my MacBook under USB devices under system profiler, and my work PC doesn't recognize it either. Mac's Drive Setup software doesn't see it either.
We suspect the file system got dorked. Any ideas?
DO NOT panic! Try this: restart your computer and plug your USB in again(this helps to clean the buffer), see if you drive can be recognized.
If you still can't access the data inside, try this data recovery program Wondershare Data Recovery. Get the program here,
Mac Data Recovery (Mac OS version)
Windows Data Recovery (Windows Version)
Take care - Before those items are recovered, stop saving more files to the USB in case the file data are overwritten!

You might try to use a recovery product that is designed to restore deleted files or files from a reformatted USB key. Search on "USB Flash Drive Data Recovery" in Google and find a free trial utility. A good utility will not damage your key's data in any way.

This will get the drive back, but you WILL lose the data. If you need the data. I do not know the answer. Repost your question to go to Sandisk site below
'.............U3 smart drives come preinstalled with the U3 Launchpad
which emulates the Windows OS start menu, and controls program installation and
hence facilitate the portability of software. However, if you would like to use
the USB flash drive or memory key as a pure normal USB mass storage device, or
you don't use operating system that U3 supports (i.e Windows XP and Windows
2000 operating systems), or you simply feel that U3 Launchpad and applications
have bugs such as unable to eject due to locked files in use, consent on
privacy and automatic installation of U3 software and pop-up etc, you can uninstall
and remove the U3 Launchpad from the USB storage device.
To remove and delete the U3 Launchpad, you need to download
U3 Launchpad uninstallers or U3 Launchpad Removal Tool that remove the U3
Launchpad and re-configure the USB drive to be a single mass storage USB drive.
Currently, U3 Launchpad uninstallers are only available for and must be run on
Windows XP or Windows 2000 machine. When uninstalling, the U3 smart drives USB
device has to be plugged in with U3 Launchpad running.
U3 Launchpad Removal Tool for SanDisk USB U3 devices can be
downloaded here, http://u3.sandisk.com/
WARNING: U3 Launchpad removal is irreversible. You won't be
able to install U3 again. Beside, backup your data before begin uninstallation
process as ALL data will be erased.
UPDATE: It's impossible to reinstall U3 LaunchPad........."
