Question about SanDisk 2GB Cruzer Micro SDCZ62048A10 Hard Drive

2 Answers

I have a SanDisk Cruzer micro 2gb, don't remember

I have a SanDisk Cruzer micro 2gb flash drive, don't remember where I got it. When I plug it in, the volume label says, "PC Repair System," and it seems to be filled with assorted repair/system utilities. I'm certain I didn't put them there.

Anybody know what this is? BTW, I'm using XP/SP3.

Thank you.

Hello there sevans004.

Here's your GEEK-steer ...

== DESCRIPTION ==

Based on your description, it's clearly a fairly common, portable, USB format, system recovery toolkit someone took the time to assemble. Depending upon the range and quality of utilities included, an extremely useful and handy thing to have around.

== SUGGESTIONS ==

  1. [INSERT OBLIGATORY SUGGESTION HERE] If is not yours, attempt to find out who's it is and return it.
  2. Failing the above, by using at least two scanners (e.g., your resident antivirus scanner, a-Squared, MBAM, etc.), perform a thorough sweep of the entire drive to ensure it's malware free. However, be advised that it's very common for many malware scanners to flag legitimate recovery type tools as malware, when in fact they are "false-positive". Unfortunately there's no replacement for experience in knowing which are false, and which aren't. But you can at least get-a-second-opinion: Submit to VirusTotal any files flagged malware that you suspect of being false-positive, then factor in its resulting report in your decision.
  3. Test to see if it's encumbered with any passwords at all? If not, no problem on that front.
  4. Review its list of tools, and for each that you're not familiar with, locate (via Google) its usage instructions. Only then (unless you're comfortable with the level of your geek-a-bility) would I suggest you take any of its tools out for a test-spin.
  5. Test to see if it's a bootable disk [this will require modifying your BIOS boot order to boot first from each of its USB type disk options (if capable)].
== RECOMMENDATION ==

In the end, you may just consider keeping that little baby as-is, and have available for whenever it might (read: will) come in handy.

Good luck, and thanks in advance for posting back ...
  • to let me (and others) know how things worked out,
  • if you have any further questions,
  • to provide clarification or feedback.

Plug it in, then click on the start button, double click my computer and right click the thumb drive icon and click on format, use the quick format option. It sound like you have been infected with spy or malware. this will delete it all and leave you with a reformatted thumb drive, good as new

How do I use a Sandisk Cruzer USB 2.0 Flash Drive on an Ibook G4 Apple


You can safely plug in into the usb drive, the system will recognize it with no problem.
The only think you have to remember is to "unmount it". To do so you should drag the flash drives icon into the recycle bin. When you don't see the icon and the led stops to flash you can safely remove it

SanDisk 2GB Cruzer Micro USB I/O device error


I would recommend plugging your Cruzer into another computer. It's possible that your computer has corrupted or incorrect drivers for the flash drive. This is one cause of the yellow alert in Device Manager. If you move the flash drive to another machine and it works, you can save your data and make a backup copy. If your Cruzer doesn't work in a different computer (I would try at least 2 other working computers), it's possible that the flash drive is faulty.

Sandisk flash drive


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.
