Just plug it into an available USB port! Wait a few seconds and watch the bottom right of your computer screen for the status. It will tell you that the computer has detected new hardware, that it is some sort of hard drive, that it is installing appropriate drivers, and then finally (30 to 60 seconds later), that your new device is ready to use. Then just double click on "My Computer" (if it is displayed on the desktop), or under the Start menu. There you will see an icon for you new "hard drive". Just double-click on it to open it. Then open another window containing the files you want to copy to the flash drive. Then you can copy stuff to it just by dragging your files from an open window to your flash drive window.

How to reformat a flash drive


Hi jabbbbbb6,
The Cruzer Micro is a flash storage device that connects to your computer's USB port. It comes in various sizes and fits on a keychain. If you want to erase the drive, you can perform a reformat from within Windows' Disk Management utility. After you reformat the drive, you do not need to reinstall any drivers because Windows automatically detects the device.


To Reformat, please follow the instructions:
1. Insert the Cruzer Micro to an available USB port on your computer. Right-click "Computer" and select "Manage." Click "Disk Management" under "Storage" on the left pane of the window.
2. Right-click your USB drive on the list of drives and select "Format." Select a name and file system type for your drive.
3. Click "OK" to reformat the drive. Click "Start" and "Computer" to access your drive.

Rate this accordingly.

Hope it helps.
Thank you for using Fixya.

When i plug it into my computer it comes up as a cd drive with 0 bytes free of 0 bytes im running windows 7 now but when i got it i was running windows xp


Some flash-drives imitate a CD-disk (which, after being written and "closed", always show up as having "zero bytes free space"), in order to automatically run some software from the flash-drive each time that the flash-drive is connected to a computer. For example, that "auto-run" software may be a file encryption/decryption routine, requiring you to enter a password to access your files.
So, if you "lose" the flash-drive, whoever finds it cannot access your files, without having your password.

I need step by step directions, please. It seems as simple as plug it in and its done, but I've got to go to "my computer" etc, etc, and I just need to be walked through it once Thank you


I can help you with your Sandisk Cruzer USB drive problem.

Sandisk Cruzer's are fairly unique in so far as they don't just appear in your My Computer window the way that every other USB drive I've ever used does.

Instead, Sandisk Cruzer's use a terribly 'helpful' piece of software that takes time to load every time you plug it in.

Here are the steps:
  1. Plug in your Sandisk Cruzer USB drive.
  2. Sit back and wait. Don't touch anything.
  3. If it is connected properly, the 'slide' bit will light up orange, at first flashing, eventually solid.
  4. When the orange Sandisk logo appears on your desktop, the drive is ready to use.
  5. Clicking on the Sandisk logo will bring up a menu.
  6. Click the 'Explore Drive' option to bring up a windows explorer screen of the USB drive.
  7. When you are done with the Cruzer, return to the Sandisk Menu App and select 'Eject' to prepare the USB drive for removal. (Just pulling it out without 'ejecting' it will destroy all your data 1 time out of 50 or 100, so always use the eject feature.)

I hope that helps.

How to use flash drive


Cruzer Micro is an USB external memory where you can store files.
It is automatically detected and installed on all Windows OS from Windows 2000 onward, same on Mac OS and recent Linux versions.
All you have to do is plugging the device into USB.
After the flash drive had been automatically installed , it will be displayed under Computer as an external disk.
You can copy and transfer files using Cut, Copy and Paste functions, or Send to function in windows, or the file manager, depending on the OS used.
In Windows, before unplugging the memory from USB , it is better to turn off the computer or use the 'safely remove USB' function located near to the clock, on the lower right hand corner.

Sandisk Cruzer Micro 2.0 problem


Should show up in "My Computer" as a removable drive with letter designator. Then it is simply a matter of drag and drop to copy files using the mouse. If XP doesn't recognize the drive, put it in another USB port, and or try it on another computer. If it doesn't show up then, take it back to the store.
