Re: san disk and vista
Try your sandisk to other computer and if appearing same problems may it comes to conclusion that it was damage. maybe some circuit of your sand disk is damage or maybe your files cannot be access anymore but and most probably u can use your san disk if you goes to formatting.

You would access it from My Computer like your normal harddrive. Note if the removable drive is showing up in My Computer then this is a sign that another device is already been assigned to the drive your USB drive wants by default. The links below will help you assign a drive letter to the USB drive.
I am assuming you have a SanDisk flash drive which has some picture files and you want to download into the computer.
If you have a Windows XP or Vista running on your computer, you simply insert the flash drive onto the USB port. The flash drive will be selected as Drive F: or G: depending on what else is on your PC.
You then transfer these files to your C: drive. This should store the files.
You have not mentioned where these files have come from - if these are from another computer then you can open them directly on your PC.
But if these are created from either a camera or a mobile phone then you should be able to open these on your computer if these are JPG or AVI files.
This Cruzer driver package for the SanDisk Cruzer Micro is needed only for Windows 98. Windows Me, 2000 and XP already have the driver (if you are having trouble using the drive on these systems, then it is likely to be a conflict or problem in Windows - see the Windows Device Manager and Windows Help file for details).
After you download the Cruzer driver file, unzip the contents and click setup.exe to begin. Importantly, you should restart Windows 98 so the new Cruzer drivers can properly load into your system. Next, plug in the Cruzer drive and Windows will finish the installation. Restart your computer if needed.
Just a few questions about your system and we should be able to resolve your problem fairly quickly. Firstly is your xp a service pack 2 installation, secondly is your usb ports usb 2.0, and finally does other usb devices work properly when plugged into the same physical usb port on your pc?
Scan disk drives have the driver and application software on a partition built onto the drive thats not accessible for write access, meaning you cant format that partition. Other systems see that partition just fine, but it seems your system is having trouble doing so. Theres a few reasons for this trouble. If you can provide me with the detail i need about your system im shure we can resolve your issue promptly.
Is the account that your tying to access the drive with an Administrator account? If not, Log in as Administrator and try to access the new drive. If you ARE using Administrator privileges on the vista machine, the problem lies in the U3 smart driver. Try downloading and installing the drivers for the XP SP2 os on scan disks website, If vista rejects the install package off of the scan disk website, let me know and i'll extract the drivers and build an install for them for you.
Is this the U3 model? According to SanDisk's site, there is no driver required for it if it is the U3 model: http://www.sandisk.com/Products/Item(2483)-SDCZ6-2048-A11ALZ-SanDisk_Cruzer_Micro_2GB_Purple.aspx
