Sandisk offers a program that completely wipes the Cruzer (including the partitioning), turning the drive into a pure unit. This is a permanent solution, and one cannot restore U3 functionality once this has been done. I hate the U3 stuff, so this is something I do with every Cruzer right out of the box.

Doing a search on Google for 'u3 removal' yields a few links, but at this moment, I'm running into a lot of broken links, and the original page on Sandisk's site (where I got the utiliy in the first place) is broken. I use the utility far too much to not be sure of having access to it, so I made sure to have it in my numerous 'essentials collection' CDs at home and work, as well as on my personal page in case I ever was somewhere without the CD.

One note about the version I have.... it is the Windows program, so if you have a Mac, you'll have to go to Sandisk and get the Mac version. I have no idea whether there is an option in Linux, but I'd be surprised if someone hasn't done it. Again, the Google results I got seem to have a lot of potential

Another thing, I have used this program flawlessly on a pile of 1GB and 2GB Cruzers. As far as I know, it will work on other sizes, but just so you're aware, I can't be 100% sure of that.

If you want to grab the Windows executable from my collection, go here: http://www.rawbw.com/~zio/misc/u3/U3Uninstall.zip

Hope this helps!

I have a 4gb cruzer that's password protected by U3. Apparently I don't know my password (I know I'm inputing the correct one) and I have one chance left before it says I will be locked out permanently...


im not sure about passwords on usb drives but

USB drives can be write-protected by modifying the StoreageDevicePolicies Registry key and WriteProtect Registry value.
click Start>run>regedit to open Registry Editor. and press control+F to open the find dialogue box and type "usb device" or "driverdesc" to open usb mass storage device or type "usb mass storage device" in the search windows. And right click on it and delete. This will set the policy value to 0. then insert your usb device. It will work fine.
# Remember: do not delete any unknow files in the registry as this will make some programes not work as usual.

also
If you are running a Windows XP OS then you might be able to:

- click start right click on my computer select open
- Right click the icon of your Flash Drive (It should be F:/ or something)
- Click Properties in the menu that comes up
- Click the Sharing tab
- Click permissions
- And finally, click Allow next to Full Control.
hope this helps

When I plug my new SanDisk 2GB Cruzer USB 2.0 Flash Drive into my computer, it says the drive is read only- How can I fix this?


If this is the U3 SanDisk Cruzer....U3 drives present themselves as two devices. One of them appears as a read-only CD drive that contains all the **** programs and the other is the writeable USB stick part. It comes with two partitions on it, one for data, and the other called "U3 Partition" which is read-only.

I have a MacBook OS 10.4.11. How do I erase the pictures that I've put on my SanDisk 2.0 micro cruzer?


Hi,
Is your Sandisk Micro USB enabled with password on U3 (a program to install programs on the go, for more information go to www.u3.com)? If it is, go to a Windows machine and disable the password. Then format your drive.
hope this helps!

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...
