Bring the Sandisk cruzer to any computer store that offers data recovery and back up or data retrieval. We called them the Data Recovery Center.

Most of them has a software they use in cracking passwords and other secured programs. From their computer, they could actually back up your important files saved in your Sandisk. Then you may now reformat your device.

Hope this helps and have a great day!

Help How can I unblock my sandisk cruzer


Hi,
Dear Customer, Plz Flow this instruction i think solve you problem.
Reformat the drive:-
  • Right-click the SanDisk flash drive within "Computer" and select "Format..." Enter a name for the drive, select your desired format (FAT32 is typical for flash drives). Click "Start" to format the drive. This, unfortunately, will erase everything on the drive. Any data contained will be lost along with the password protection. Once reformatted, the drive will be fully accessible.

It says you have been locked out coz I have exceed the number of password attempts.


SanDisk does not provide backdoor work-arounds to lockouts. It is impossible to recover the data stored on the disk, and you will have to format.

Dear Team Today when i try to use my CRUZER U3 (8GB) I GET MESSAGE "you have reached the maximum number of failed password...


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

My SanDisk 8GB Cruzer suddenly stopped working. it gives me an error 'drive not formatted"


It was probably pulled out without being properly removed. To use it again its not recommended but you can try to format. What happens is voltage strike the flash memory and erases sectors of it making it unreadable.
