Please keep the sandisk in to the USB port of system/laptop,
select the files what you want to send to sandisk, then rightclick on the selection. Then goto "Send to" option. In that you will find your sandisk. Select the drive of sandisk.
I suspect that your SD card is not formatted with the proper drive letter. See below for adding a drive letter to your SD card.
When you reformat an SD Card, Windows overwrites the drive letter and the operatingsystem cannot recognize the drive without a drive letter. You can add a drive letter to it if you open "Help
and Support" and go to the Disk Management and it will describe it. You
can also type in the search box "Disk management" and it will take you
to the window that allows you to manage your disk, and you can add a
drive letter, or format.
First thing is you can try to detect your pen drives with Linux.
(DSL Linux is just about 50 MB download. You'll need to burn it on to a CD as an IMAGE and not copy on the CD directly, then boot with the CD.It will automatically mount your USB drive and you can cpy the data to your hard disk and later format the USB drive.)

If that too fails, then you can try recovering using a data recovery software. Or contact me and I can personally help but a live chat session would be better since posting here will take and waste time. You could contact me on
and then we can proceed to chat and solve this issue. I won't take any charge. I'll be happy helping getting the data since I know how it feels to lose precious data.
You can only format these drives in mode FAT16 or FAT32. Try to format it in FAT32 mode and let Windows choose the default sectors for you. This is the better solution. As I can see, the operating system recognise your drive that mean the correct driver was loaded. After a new format whith the correct params if your flash drive shows the same thing 0 disk space 0 disk space used, your drive is DEAD. It happens if you had unplug your flash drive whithout stoping it by cliking on the icon in the notification window (near the clock), the icon is mini drive whith a green arrow. Allways unplug the USB devices by this because you have the +5 voltage on this connector and if you don't do this an arcking effect happens betwen your device and the connector.
I have got a solution this day for an other member. Fist select in the BIOS SETUP the BOOT SEQUENCE and place in the firt place the USB drive to the secon your HDD ou CD-ROOM drive ans so one. Be sure you have format your USB device as SYSTEM and have the system on it. Thats all. You can download a light version of WINDOWS XP and put it on the USB flash drive or external USB disk.
Good day most often this happen when the hard disk or the DVD/CD rom attached complicate each other.Try this solution remove the cable attached to the hard disk and re insert it (be sure it is in shutdown mode).If you successfully enter the OS try to run checkdisk on your hardisk to check any damages or run diskmgmt.msc to managed your hard disk.To to it go to run->Type " diskmgmt.msc" without a colon then strike enter.
