    Also wouldn't allow formatting

    right click my computer,
    manage, and then go into disk management. Right click on the flash drive and
    select new partition. Run the new partition wizard and recreate the partition.
    If this does not work then the drive is defective. Got this answer from the pny support guys thought It would be helpful for others with the same porblem

Mi computadora no lee el cd

Bueno si el cd-rom no te esta reconociendo ningun CD te recomiendo que reenplaces el CD-rom por uno nuevo o mejor aun reeplazalo con un DVD rom y si tu maquina tiene memoria suficiente hasta podras ver peliculas. Verifica que cuando adquieras el dvdrom(si decides hacerlo) que te traiga un programa para dvd's.

Hi, i put in my sandisk usb, computer sees it but wont let me store anything on it??

Your SanDisk Cruzer appears on your computer as two drives
  1. A CD-ROM ( with the icon of a Cd-Rom) that contains the U3Smart Operating system, but does not have any space for storage.
  2. A mass storage device.
The two devices are labeled sequentially if CD-ROM is E, the mass-storage drive is F, but that is not guaranteed.

You should drop files on the mass-storage device, not the CD-ROM.

How does a small cd install on my cd rom device?

There is usually a space right in the center of the slot that comes out when you eject your CD Drive. If it cannot read it, then chances you will need a DVD reader.

Why usb device show extra cd rom

The Cruzer Micro contains a small operating system that allows it (and you the user) to run certains applications on any computer (Windows). It has the so-called U3Smart technology. The small U3 Smart OS appears as a CD-Rom drive. In addition to that the Cruzer has the normal flash-drive.
The interest of the U# Smart technology is that you use your own programs loaded on the key. Suppose you like to use Firefox, and the public/school/library computer you are using does not have Firefox, You plug your USB Micro Cruzer, and click the the LAUNCHPAD of the Cruzer (The cruzer CD-ROM icon). It installs an icon on the tray through which you access your applications. You scroll to find your Firefox and use it to surf the Web. All history, files downloaded, bookmarks, passwords to online banking, everything remains on your drive. When you remove it you remove all trace of what you have been doing.

You can also activate the security feature by setting a password. Even if it is lost, your data is safe.

Hope it helps.

The installation disk that came with my 51-in-1 Card Reader/Writer is too small for the CD rom on my macbook pro. In fact, I stuck it in and now it's lost inside. Can I download the installation software...

you had better remove it from inside the drive first I think. these small CDs do infact run in what appears to be a big CD drive. they need to be positioned in the exact center of the moulded guide that takes the Normal CD/DVD.
As for downloading the software, it is probable that it can be but as the brand was not included in the description i can only suggest you search for it via google.
