Re: sandisk cruzer thumb drive
This just means it is trying to recognize the device. All you need to do is allow it to recogniz the device and find the proper drivers. You can put files in here by going into my computer and double clicking the mass storage device. Files can be draged or copied in here, then taken anywhere you need to go.

Then uninstall all usb drivers then restart computer then check . If still face same issue then right click on my computer then click on manage thne go to disk management.then removable media/ check there if you find removable storage then right click on it then open or explore it. if you still not recognized then when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del' key to enter in BIOS. Then go to advanced in bios then set LEGACY 2.0 enabled. then save settings and exit. then check. Aslo check your computer usb ports are working fine. Let me know if you need more assistanse. Thanks.
If you want to add that to my ever growing pile of sandisk cruzers you are welcome.
Quality from sandisk has dropped considerably as can be seen from comments on their web site or doing a google search. It is very rare that I see other brands for data recovery. The cruzers have some software of their own on the drive that can get corrupted or deleted very easily. Once that happens you may as well toss it in the garbage.
Could you give me information on the computer your using? I'd need the mother board manufacturer, the bios manufacturer, the bios revision number, The operating system your using, The revision number of your operating system, And is it only usb storage media that your having trouble with, or does your issues include usb imaging devices?
Is the account that your tying to access the drive with an Administrator account? If not, Log in as Administrator and try to access the new drive. If you ARE using Administrator privileges on the vista machine, the problem lies in the U3 smart driver. Try downloading and installing the drivers for the XP SP2 os on scan disks website, If vista rejects the install package off of the scan disk website, let me know and i'll extract the drivers and build an install for them for you.
Not unless you are using Windows98, your PC should automatically recognize the SanDisk Cruzer Titanium as a "Removable Storage/Device". Driver is not required for Windows ME, W2k or XP.
If for some reason the SanDisk Cruzer Titanium (non-U3 devices) is not recognizable, then perhaps it is not a problem with the PC but with the SanDisk. Pls try all other USB ports of your PC (front and back). The SanDisk website provides utilities/software for this kind of eventuality. They are Sansa Firmware Updater and Sansa Connect Recovery Tool. Both are available at http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx.
Pls be forwarned that some utilities can and will reset your SanDisk to default and any or all data can and may be deleted.
Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things are or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
I've had this same problem with a number of Cruzer Titaniums. In my case, it seemed to have been due to data corruption. There seems to a section of the flash that is dedicated not to storage but to helping the computer recognize the device. Once this gets trashed, I don't know of a way that the end user can fix the problem. What a waste, because in all other aspects the device is probably still ok. Kind of like a PC with a corrupted BIOS image.
