Heating up, light not coming on

When I plug the flashdrive into my computer it is not showing up. I also tried on my wife's Mac and it does not show up there either. This is an 8 gb cruzer.

    Have the same problem with a brand new 8gb--the older 1 gb works fine.
    I suspect bad hardware

My sandisk cruzer 4 GB pendrive ws working fine but now whenever i try to format\copy\cut it shows location 0 with used space 0 free space 0 what should i do


Your flashdrive usually shows 2 drives when inserted to your computer, one is the U3 drive and the other one is the removable disk drives. U3 drive is your separate partition for the U3 system and in order for you to store, copy, format your flashdrive, you should be selecting the removable disk drive, not the U3 drive. U3 is a read only memory drive that is responsible for your U3 to work (just like portable applications). Hope this helps.

How to rcover from my sandisk back to my library


1. Does the flash drive LED light up when you plug it into various computers? ( not just your own fortesting purposes).

2. Does it pop up in windows explorer at all? ( Should be labeled as Removable Disk by default)

Your flashdrive may have essentially died. Test this flashdrive on multiple computers to determine whether its your computer or the flash drive. If you are trying to recover information try out the app Recuva which can be found on google search. Your information may have been corrupted.

I put the flashdrive into the port but I do not understand how to get the work onto the drive? It said that I connected it right but it did not show me how to copy or download work onto the flashdrive.


A flashdrive shows up in Windows as a new drive letter un Windows Explorer.
If you right click on My Computer (XP), Computer (Windows 7) you can select explore or open.
The dialog box that opens is split in half. the left side shows the "drives" and corresponding letters. Typically, you will have a Local C:\ for your Primary hard drive, CD Drive D:\ for a CD/DVD and the flash drive will show as Removable Drive E:.
To copy work to the new flash drive, you can select save as from your program and select the drive letter that you saw the removable drive named in Windows explorer.

You can also, from the folder named My Documents, copy the file by right clicking on it, then selecting the flash drive letter and pasting into the empty window associated with it on the right side of the divided Windows Explorer screen.

I plug in the sundisk cruzer 2.0 GB USB device and all it does is blink. It will not show up on my computer for the drive.


Hello

If the computer recognize that there is a device plugged into the system, then just try to plug the flashdrive into another port at the back of your case.

If the computer does not recognize that there is a device plugged in, there is a problem with your flash drive. It still gets power from the computer(Bliking light), but there is no data transfer between computer and flash drive.

If it is still under warrenty, send the flash in for repairs(presuming that your USB ports work), otherwise try and see if it works on a other computer. If it does, the the problem is with the USB ports on your computer. I really hope this can be of help.

Best regards
Andrea

San disk not showing up on the computers


Do you have a drive letter F already on your computer? If so, many USB flash drives try to use that drive letter and do not show up in your "My Computer".

You can go to your disk manager and see if the disk is actually present:
right click on your My Computer icon -> manage
choose Disk management

See if the flash drive is listed. If not, try another USB port - still not? Drive may be bad :-(

If the drive is listed, right click on the square to the left side and choose "change drive letter" Change it to an unused letter, such as "U". Check your My Computer, it will be there

Hope this helps
