Question about Memory Cards & USB Flash Drives
I have a problem with my pendrive.It shows error as follows.
"An error has occured while initializing U3 launchpad: Drive J is unavailable or unformatted.U3 launchpad will close now.Please format the drive,disconnect the U3 device and try again."
If any one is having the solution for that...plz mail to email@example.com.. i am very thankfull to u.......in advance....
Download Gparted disk partion tool, use the bootable ISO burn disk. Now boot PC with gparted and on the desktop is a icon for mounting usb drives, use this to mount the usb stick.Follow the instructions, when asked to install gparted on disk exit window by using "q+enter" key.
Now start the partion tool and mount usb drive and partion and format.
An alternative method is to use the partion tool found in most linux distributions such as in puppy or mepis.

This will get the drive back, but you WILL lose the data. If you need the data. I do not know the answer. Repost your question to go to Sandisk site below
'.............U3 smart drives come preinstalled with the U3 Launchpad
which emulates the Windows OS start menu, and controls program installation and
hence facilitate the portability of software. However, if you would like to use
the USB flash drive or memory key as a pure normal USB mass storage device, or
you don't use operating system that U3 supports (i.e Windows XP and Windows
2000 operating systems), or you simply feel that U3 Launchpad and applications
have bugs such as unable to eject due to locked files in use, consent on
privacy and automatic installation of U3 software and pop-up etc, you can uninstall
and remove the U3 Launchpad from the USB storage device.
To remove and delete the U3 Launchpad, you need to download
U3 Launchpad uninstallers or U3 Launchpad Removal Tool that remove the U3
Launchpad and re-configure the USB drive to be a single mass storage USB drive.
Currently, U3 Launchpad uninstallers are only available for and must be run on
Windows XP or Windows 2000 machine. When uninstalling, the U3 smart drives USB
device has to be plugged in with U3 Launchpad running.
U3 Launchpad Removal Tool for SanDisk USB U3 devices can be
downloaded here, http://u3.sandisk.com/
WARNING: U3 Launchpad removal is irreversible. You won't be
able to install U3 again. Beside, backup your data before begin uninstallation
process as ALL data will be erased.
UPDATE: It's impossible to reinstall U3 LaunchPad........."
