    Last night I tried to dowload something (I don't remember where, or what) to get my U3 Launchpad back. Well, it took the device and totally messed it up. First it would show as my H drive (always did) but the G drive (a "CD" drive) was gone. Then my actual CD and DVD drives disappeared from view, and had ! in Device Manager. Dell fixed those, but woudn't fix the U3 drive. First it would tell me it needed to be formatted, then it would act like a CD drive and tell me "insert disk into Drive H" now it's telling me to format it again. I don't want to! I don't want to lose what's on there!!! Is there ANYTHING I can do?

    My wife's newer NTFS-format Dell computer keeps asking me to format my Cruzer flash drive, but it can't do the job. However, the Cruzer works just dandy in my older FAT-format computer. I suspect that this the reason why Cruzers plugged into NTFS-formatted computers keep asking you to format your Cruzer Flash Drives!



    My question is: How can I reformat my Cruzer to work with NTFS?

I have many thumb (flash) drives,...all of which has asked for a format on at least one accasion...to save them I've always used partitioning software to re-write the partiton...which has made the drives re-usable after every fatal occasion....I strongly suggest constantly backing them up...but if the flash drive ever states that you must format it....grab the partitioning software,,,partition it...and then enjoy it for a few more months before you're required to do it again...

If it cannot complete a format, you want to return it as a defective item, where you purchased it, for replacement.

    Staples is the final authority on that, but the Staples Customer Service Return Policy page says they have a 14 day return policy, so call them (1–800–378–2753) for instructions.

My computer is no longer reading SD cards. I have Windows Vista. Can this be easily fixed? Thanks


If it doesn't show up at all under "Computer" go into "Disk Management" Right click Computer > Manage > DIsk Management.
If it is missing in here then the card is bad. It it shows up here, initialize it if it asks to, otherwise right click the card and add new Simple Volume.

If you see it under "Computer" and when you try to traverse it and it asks to format disk. Format it. This happens when the MFT record on the SD card is corrupt and formatting it will fix it.

You might need to double check to make sure this is made for a Mac, PC, or Both. You might need to have it formated from the Disk Management (assuming you are using a Windows computer) so your computer recognizes the hard drive.
Here is a link.

If this does not work then it is likely you have a faulty unit and should ask for a replacement.

Unable to access external WD 500 Gb drive: "You need to format the disk"


It seems vista is the problem. On older operating systems the disk's work fine. My dis was formatted with vista and as a result showed exactly the same message when plugging it into a xp system. Back on the vista it works fine. The ntfs is native to win NT/xp there might have been changes in vista. Also do not use the firewire cabling, i had numerious problems until i reverted back to the usb.
