Question about Dell Studio XPS 435 PC Desktop
Help My Sandisk U3 Locks up vista.. when it says run U3
the screen blanks and Pc locks up .. mouse pointer freeze..
Using latest vista with sp1 and latest intel 920i. Del Studio XPS
Do you think its a 64 bit related problem???
Very well could be due to the fact your running 64bit Vista. I would try shutting the computer off,connect the U3,then turn on the computer. Sometimes the drives come with software that could be causing the problem also due to the try to install themselves when connected. You could also try booting up in safe mode. Press F5 repeatedly when the computer is booting up and this will take you to a menu that you can choose the safe mode option and try to connect the drive in this mode. You can then load/disable files or software on the drive that may be the cause of the problem. Also try the drive in another computer if possible and if it works try getting the firmware update from the sandisk website. It is possible the drive itself could be bad.

This will get the drive back, but you WILL lose the data. If you need the data. I do not know the answer. Repost your question to go to Sandisk site below
'.............U3 smart drives come preinstalled with the U3 Launchpad
which emulates the Windows OS start menu, and controls program installation and
hence facilitate the portability of software. However, if you would like to use
the USB flash drive or memory key as a pure normal USB mass storage device, or
you don't use operating system that U3 supports (i.e Windows XP and Windows
2000 operating systems), or you simply feel that U3 Launchpad and applications
have bugs such as unable to eject due to locked files in use, consent on
privacy and automatic installation of U3 software and pop-up etc, you can uninstall
and remove the U3 Launchpad from the USB storage device.
To remove and delete the U3 Launchpad, you need to download
U3 Launchpad uninstallers or U3 Launchpad Removal Tool that remove the U3
Launchpad and re-configure the USB drive to be a single mass storage USB drive.
Currently, U3 Launchpad uninstallers are only available for and must be run on
Windows XP or Windows 2000 machine. When uninstalling, the U3 smart drives USB
device has to be plugged in with U3 Launchpad running.
U3 Launchpad Removal Tool for SanDisk USB U3 devices can be
downloaded here, http://u3.sandisk.com/
WARNING: U3 Launchpad removal is irreversible. You won't be
able to install U3 again. Beside, backup your data before begin uninstallation
process as ALL data will be erased.
UPDATE: It's impossible to reinstall U3 LaunchPad........."
