Re: my disk-on-key doesn't work

You have to "Repartition" it with DOS software and then "Format" it, just like you would an "older" type hard drive. There are a few programs out there to do this. Here is a couple of links to help. Hope this helps.

My computer recognizes that I have 1.8 GB left on the disk but when I try to download songs it claims that the disk if full. What do I do?

Good day sir/maam, hi, your SD card may be infected by a virus that wont allow anymore software or files to be stored on the disk, run a virus scan on your PC, there is an easy way to check if your PC is infected, to check, on the my computer menu bar click tools, folder options, view, select show hidden files and folder, then apply, close the window, Now go back to the folder option, view and check the show hidden files, its changed. and goes back to not show hidden files. If this happens, download AVG anti virus and scan your computer.

How do I install music from my real player from my computer onto a 2gb san disk?

If you are listening in "real-time" to something playing in RealPlayer, you cannot (easily) "save" that stream to a file (on your C: drive or on your USB memory-stick).

If you use RealPlayer to play a file that is somewhere on your C: disk,
then open the folder containing that file.
Click with the SECOND (usually the RIGHT) mouse-button on the file, and point to "Send To" and a sub-menu, listing possible "targets" will open.
Click on the target that is your San Disk, to copy the file.

I have got a 2gb scan disk memory card i cant access it or format

Hello Friend,
Here is a method to try:

  1. Backup all data from your hard drive to another hard drive or CDs or DVDs.
  2. Turn off your computer.
  3. Insert the USB drive to a USB port.
  4. Turn on your computer.
  5. Hit the F8 key when prompted to get to your system bios. Some computers required the Delete key or F2 instead of F8. There should be a note on the screen that specifies the key.
  6. Navigate your bios (usually using your cursor keys) to boot from CD drive first. Save and exit.
  7. Insert your operating system disc aka Operating System Restore disc. Your computer should restart. If not, restart it yourself.
  8. Follow the instructions for installing your operating system. When the option to select which drives to format comes, you should be able to see your USB disk in the list.
  9. Format the disk with FAT32 for Win98 or previous. Format with NTFS for anything after e.g. NT, 2000, XP etc.
  10. Depending on your options, you may be able to opt out of the operating system install at this point. If it was running well beforehand and you can, leave your other drives alone and quit the re-installation.
  11. Reset the computer to boot from the disc drive the operating system is on instead of the CD drive as before. You should have your working flash drive detecting and usable now in windows.
  12. If you didn't get the option to opt out of the re-installation, continue to follow the instructions onscreen and complete the re-installation, formatting whatever drives are required. Note: Do not try to install your operating system onto your USB disk drive. Also be cautious when formatting to keep in mind all data could be lost.
Best Regards,

Inserting SanDisk Cruzer in USB, REBOOTS the Computer instantly

Not sure if this is the problem, but I just found out that in some BIOS menus, there are 3 options for your USB controller...Enable...Disable...No Boot.

If you know how to get to your BIOS, it's worth a shot to make sure it is set to "No Boot" if it is an option.
