Sandisk cruiser micro 4gb flashdrive repair

Your product selection does not include the 4GB model so I have put it under the 2GB.

I purchased one of the new sandisk 4GB drives back in November of last year, it's been great and I love it. Thursday night however, I fell on it (I keep it on my key chain) Thursday when I went to use it, nothing happened, no lights or anything, it just got a little warm after being plugged in for a couple mins.

I work at a cell phone repair center, so I thought I would just check for a broken solder joint on the usb connector or something. To my horror I found that a large BGA chip was cracked. It's not the flash chip, I believe it contains driver and firmware information.


So, my question is, will sandisk or some other repair center replace this part? I haven't e-mailed sandisk about it yet.

If no one will repair it or sell me the BGA, I think the easiest thing would be to buy another, and swap the 4GB flash chip ask it would be pretty easy to do where I work with a hot air station and good soldering iron.

any advice?

Your best bet is to contact the vendor you purchased it from first, and many are good about replacements in the first 12 months. If that doesn't pan out, contact SanDisk directly at 1-866-726-3475 .

Sandisk micro memory chip not working in my lg620g cell phone


The LG620g works with microSD cards. Your 4GB card is actually a microSDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it's electronically incompatible and will not work in this phone. You need to use microSD cards, 2GB and smaller.

SanDisk Cruzer Micro 4GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive My Drive is Empty How Do I Get U3Smart The Drive To Factory Settings. My Model is SDCZ6-4096A10 SN# BH0701l5B


According to Scandisk:

As of October 1st 2009, SanDisk started shipping the Cruzer Micro (SDCZ6-XXX) product line without the U3 software pre-installed on the device.

During the transition period, there may have been a small number of devices that were packaged in older packaging that states the device includes the U3 software. If you purchased one of these devices and would like to use the U3 software, please download and install it.

Where can I insert my mini sandisk memorycard into my toshiba laptop? I see no slots for it.


If you have no SD slot on your laptop, you will have to buy an external USB SD reader. They typically cost $5-$10, and are readily available online (e.g. http://www.buy.com/prod/micro-sd-sdhc-card-usb-reader-for-1gb-2gb-4gb-8gb/q/sellerid/23962916/loc/101/213271933.html) or in almost any store with a good selection of electronics.

How to install the program in my flashdrive the original from u3


http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/index.asp

Under product type, select "USB Flash Drive", operating system doesnt matter, and click Find Driver, on the next page, select U3 Software Installer, second from bottom. You will have to do a free registration I think, but its nothing major.

Good Luck!

If the 4gb micro SD is a high capacity SD (it will say micro SDHC on it) your player may not be able to read SDHC cards, my sansa can't because it's the 'older version' it will read 2gb and below micro SD cards though (it sucked when I found out because I had just bought a 6gb micro SDHC)

U3 2GB Cruzer Micro wont work on my vista laptop.


Hi there, I found the solution (for all 4GB flash drives).

Initially when I plugged in my PQi 4GB flash drive with Windows Vista,
there was an error message involving " Can not find the drivers needed ... "

Simply download & install "Windows Vista Service Pack 1"
it is about 444 MB in size.
The whole process might take about 2 hours to install,
but it is worth it.
These are the links where you can find your download:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/windowsvista/bb738089.aspx
OR
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=090DEAF6-2EAA-4AAA-8B3B-2E199DB4A97D&displaylang=en

It works perfectly... good luck now...
