Windows does not recognize the device ?

Hello raigangarkam,

There's a chance that that particular USB slot on your computer may not be working.

You may try to attach another USB device on that port to check if that works or not.

You might also want to try & attach your 2GB Cruzer flash drive on another USB port or another computer & check if it recognizes it.

If it still won't be recognized on the other computer, you might need to replace that 2GB Cruzer USB Flash Drive.

Hope this helps.

Make sure your cord is plugged into the SkyCaddie with the cord pointing down towards the battery, not going up. It makes sense and it is easier to plug in with the cord going up, but you will eliminate this error if you plug in the cord with the cord going up.

Device not recognized on any pc

My 4Gb Cruzer stopped being recognized on any computer last night. I put it in and it flashes once and never mounts. I called SanDisk tech support and they recommended calling LC Technologies to retrieve data.
I put a call into LC Tech and spoke with Ray, who was very friendly and all to familiar with this problem with the Cruzer. From what he told me the USB ports are highly unregulated at 5v and most likely the circuit board in the flash drive that allows for reading the data was damaged. He said the only option at this point was to send them the drive and they would pull the memory chip to try and recover any data. The bad news is that it comes with a $125 charge if they are successful on devices over 1Gb. He stated they had about a 80% recovery rate.

Cannot get direct connect to work

please check your power y cable cord the comes with the sg3/4 units. they have teeth or tabs on it near the screw and they tend to break if it slips while the person is trying to screw it in. that will cause the unit to not connect no more and they will need to replace it, but please don't use a broken power y cable, it will cause it to slide around and shorten it out. most of the time this occurs after the person had it for awhile or they screw it in too tight and over time that will strip it out and cause it to no longer to screw in...

Recognizing as MP3 player or removable device

Try reinstalling the software that came with the unit. Go into device manager & see if the unit shows there, & make sure there are no conflicts. Your owner's manual may also have a tech help number to call.
