Question about SanDisk 1GB Cruzer Titanium USB Flash Drive (413072) Hard Drive
I have my Cruzer Titanium for a year and all of a sudden it stopped working. When I plug it in USB port on any computer a blue light on him lights up for a moment and I get mesage: USB device not recognized. What kind of problem is this?
Thank you so much USCmed2! Your solution worked and we are in the process of backing it up as we speak. You deserve some sort of reward... site reward or something. Kudos and thumbs up and worship smilies etc... :D

Manga, I have the same problem with my Sandisk Titanium Mini Cruzer 4GB just 4 days ago. It worked well in all 5 different computers which I use on a regular basis then 4 days ago, I got the same error message you got with yours: "USB device not recognized" and the blue light turns off after 1 or 2 seconds just like yours. I called sandisk and spoke with 2 different techs and all told me what MARKEVANS posting advised..."its corrupted, get a new one."
For me getting a new one is of course easy it's the data that is so important as I have lost data that can cost me thousands. Out of desperation, I called a data recovery group to try to recover data...this option is costly as well ($500-1000). So out of sheer desperation just today, I plugged the Cruzer into one of the computer at work which has a USB hub. I was amazed to find that on the hub, IT WORKED. I immediately transfered all the data to the hard drive. None of the data was lost. Out of curiosity, I pulled out this hub and plugged it into the computer that didnt work and sure enough, the cruzer drive was recognized once again. I still don't know why using the hub works but sounds like a circuitry problem. Of course I will get a replacement but if data is important to you, you might want to try this with a USB hub and see if it works for you.

device can not tell os what it is. that is the most basic of functions.
without id, it can not set configuration needed to access data.
probably already lost data anyway.
replace is about the only option.
sorry for the news

Simply UNPLUG YOUR COMPUTER FROM THE POWER SUPPLY.
Yes that's it! Note that this does not mean just turning off your
computer because modern computers don't really turn off when you press
the power button as the motherboard still gets power.
First to explain, the motherboard is where all of
hardware of the computer is connected to, including the USB ports.
Sometimes the motherboard needs to be "rebooted" also because something
can go wrong, i.e. all your USB ports suddenly stop working. The small
microprocessor on the motherboard will reload the drivers and your USB
ports should be back to recognizing all devices!
So first turn off your computer using Shut Down or
pressing the power button and then UNPLUG it from the wall outlet. Let
it sit for about a minute and then plug it back in.
Hope this helps someone fix that pesky "USB device not recognized" Windows error!
