Question about SanDisk 2GB Cruzer Micro SDCZ62048A10 Hard Drive
I have a 4GB Cruzer, protected with password. Now the program U3 system doesn't run , even manually ,so I can't open the other part to access my documents.
How can I remove U3 system?
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!

Tips for a great answer:
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.
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
