What windows OS are you using. Most flash drives are not recognized by anything under NTFS. so an updated fat32 windows 98 to win xp has a 50/50 chance of seeing the usb device.

cruiser supports win98 but I don't know of any other.

Hello, my 8gb Sandisk light is keep flashing and is not bieng reconized by my laptop.


Hi,

Simply UNPLUG YOUR COMPUTER FROM THE POWER SUPPLY. Yes that's it! Note that this does not mean just turning off your computer because modern computers don't really turn off when you press the power button as the motherboard still gets power.

First to explain, the motherboard is where all of hardware of the computer is connected to, including the USB ports. Sometimes the motherboard needs to be "rebooted" also because something can go wrong, i.e. all your USB ports suddenly stop working. The small microprocessor on the motherboard will reload the drivers and your USB ports should be back to recognizing all devices!

So first turn off your computer using Shut Down or pressing the power button and then UNPLUG it from the wall outlet. Let it sit for about a minute and then plug it back in.
Hope this helps someone fix that pesky "USB device not recognized" Windows error!

good luck.

The light is off and it is not reconized, is it the power, can I fix it?


try it in another usb port. this to make sure it is the drive and not the port. if it doesn't light up in a working port it's dead. if it is less than a year old go to the manufactures web site and see if you can get a new one. unfortunately there really are no fixes for dead flash drives. -aokcomputer

I am sorry but once the default software is removed from the stick there is no way to reinstall it. SanDisk dose not offer that software for download on there site and dose ware if it is removed that it can not be reinstalled. I am sorry.

I hope this helped.
