Question about SanDisk Cruzer Micro 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive

1 Answer

Locked out of my flash drive

I have a Sandisk U3 Cruzer flash drive with 8 GB. I put a password on and it worked fine but one day someone left Caps lock on and i got lcoked out. The only way to get back into the flash drive is if i delete all the memory. Is the any way i can get passed the lock by hacking it or using some other method that does not delete the memory?

Apparently there might be no way to do that because thats what passwords are meant to do.

If its a Lock Out issue then the manufacturers must have designed a way out from this for legitimate users and reasons

Contact the manufacturers and request for assitance on this regard for a Lock Out Code

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.

I have cruzer 16gb i entered wrong password 3 times and it got locked i need access to data what do i do?


It doesn't look like this is possible. For your protection, SanDisk did not build in a backdoor or reset feature in the device.

Please see SanDisk's official statement on this feature:

Each U3 smart drive comes with a pre-defined number of login attempts. When you have only 3 attempts remaining, you will receive a warning message to prevent losing your data unnecessarily.
SanDisk does not have any method to bypass the password security feature on Cruzer U3 flash drives. SanDisk has not built in any back door or password reset methods. If the password feature is enabled and you exceed the number of incorrect password attempts, the drive will lock. Once the drive is locked there is no way to unlock the drive or gain access to the data stored on the device. You can only select the format feature, which will perform a secure erase (drive wipe) and data recovery will NOT be possible. U3 Cruzer flash drives which are password protected use 128bit AES encryption for data security

Forgot my password. I have sanDisk U3 Cruzer Micro 4.0 GB.


I have this same device and forgot my password also. The only solution you can do is format the drive and reinstall the software that came with the drive. I believe it warns you of this when installing a password on it, that if you loose or forget ur password the device will have to be reinstalled. the site to obtain the software is www.sandisk.com

Please leave comment thanks.]
If you need help in obtaining the software just email me at delhielectronics@live.com
