I would like to point out that this must be something the u3uninstall utility did to the usb stick. Mine was working at full speed while I had the U3 stuff on there, and stopped working at full speed in both windows 7 and ubuntu 10.04 after I used the tool. Sorry this isn't a solution, but it's additional info. It's strange it makes it seem like the problem is your OS or drivers and not the usb stick itself, or what the u3uninstall utility did to it.
I have the same issue. I have found a temporary solution though. I have a Sandisk 4GB Cruzer and an HP Laserjet 1022N connected VIA USB. When I uninstall the USB Printing support driver from Device Manager then plug in the Cruzer it recognizes it right away. Not quite sure why this would happen though
There is aknown issue with the CRUZER crive with U3 not being supported by windows. YOu can reformat the drive in what type, but the U3 is burned on the ROM in the drive........
What this piece of code does is allow Windows XP users to launch applications directly from the USB key, therefore allowing them to "leave no personal data behind". Unfortunately, not only is this a Windows-enhanced technology, it is actually incompatible with Mac OS X. And getting this thing to work on Apple?s OS is an exercise in frustration. The whole idea of a USB key was to replace portable rewritable media like floppy disks, which were universal in their hardware implementation (regardless of OS-specific formatting and file-system). This was true for USB keys as well, at least until U3 arrived.
Seek out a different key.
Hope this helps.
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
