Hi there.
It should make no difference what device the computer see's flash as providing you can read and write to the Sandisk.
I am test the X64 RC edition of Win7 myself and have come across the same issue and for the life of me i couldn't work out why the OS saw the drive as CD/DVD, in one case the PC saw my flash drive as a CD drive and DVD drive both displayed separately (which was strange).
Nevertheless the flash still works and i have had no problems with it.

Kind regards and thanks for using FixYa!!

Sandisk flash drive


Is the account that your tying to access the drive with an Administrator account? If not, Log in as Administrator and try to access the new drive. If you ARE using Administrator privileges on the vista machine, the problem lies in the U3 smart driver. Try downloading and installing the drivers for the XP SP2 os on scan disks website, If vista rejects the install package off of the scan disk website, let me know and i'll extract the drivers and build an install for them for you.

Sandisk flash drive


Vista has not been out long enough for any company to state that there product is compatible. I would check there website to see if they have updated drivers that will make the sandisk usb drive compatible. This may fix the problem!
