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

How do I put pictures from my home computer onto the SanDisk?


Once you plug the sandisk into your computer, a window should pop up asking you if you want to view the files on the disk, if it does, click on it. If not, just go to Start Menu -> My Computer -> (The Flash Drive). Move this window to the side so you can see the desktop aswell as the flashdrive folder. (You have have to 'demaximize' (Restore Down) the window so that you can see the desktop aswell. Then go to the start menu again and go to "My Pictures" or wherever your pictures are located. then, you can click and drag the pictures from the "My Pictures" folder into the FlashDrive's folder. Once all the images are copied into the flashdrive folder, you can unplug the flash drive and the images will be on it.

Hi , My san disk 4gb cruzer micro flash drive has the LED on when i plug it to any computer but doesn't show up on My Computer , Disk management or Device manager . I have tried 3 different desktop...


Files on a flash drive canbe corrupted if it is not removed from the USB port properly.
Before removing the flash drive click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon andthen click on the flash drive you want to remove and then remove the flashdrive when the computer message says it is Safe to remove.
To restore the flash drive to working order you need to format the flash drive,BUT you will lose the data stored on the flash drive.
If you need the data on the flash drive these WEB sites may help: -

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.

How do I download pictures from my computer onto a usb-16gbtr, there are no instructions with the flash drive


Hi,

Just plug the Flashdrive into the USB port of any Computer and the Operating system ie: Windows should just pick it up with Auto play after a few seconds. Open the FLashdrive under My Computer?Computer(depends on the version on windows you are using) Open the Mass Storage device or the drive that shows the Flashdrives details and then just copy your pictures from the folder which you saved them and then Paste them into the Flash drive.

If you want a more detailed description, just let me know what Windows or Operating sytem is on your Computer or the device you want to download from and also the make and model of the Flashdrive.

Hope this helps

San Disk Micro Cruzer 4GB


Hi there,

Try plugging it in to a different USB port on your computer. Make sure the connecter on the Cruzer is clean and there's no dust inside.

Also, try plugging it in on a different computer.

If none of these work,
I'm afraid it's a hardware problem and there's nothing that can be done about that.

Hope I helped!
