How to unlock a sandisk cruzer usb flash card 16 gb

If you cannot open your usb drive, you will need to open your drive management. Sometimes, drive letters that the usb drive looks for, usually F, G or H, are taken by other drives. You can change drive letters on other network drives to different letters, therefore, allowing the usb drive to access the letters it is looking for, and effectively, unlocking it. Below are directions on using the Disk management utility in windows:

Disk management utility will help you see all the drives that are connected to your computer, including internal hard drives, CD or DVD Drives, and removable storage like USB sticks and external hard drives. Using this utility, you can check for attached drives that are not visible in windows when attached to your computer. You can also format drives, change drive letters, mark a partition as active and delete partitions. A word on caution about using the Disk Management Utility: This utility can cause destruction of data. If you are not sure of what you are looking at and uncomfortable with using this utility you should consult with an advanced user before making any changes to drives using this utility. Also, drive '0' is usually your main hard drive.

Right click on you "My Computer" Icon

A menu will open

Chose "Manage"

The Computer Management window will open

The Computer Management window is broken down into 3 sections.

The first section on the left side of the window shows a menu. Disk Management is on the lower portion of the menu.

The right side is separated into two sections, top and bottom. The top portion shows a list of active drives on the computer. The lower portion shows all drives connected to the computer. CD or DVD drives that have not disk will not show as active drives on the top section, but can be seen in the lower section.

The lower section will show the drive description, drive size and drive condition (online or off line) in small box on the left side of that section. Disk drives will designate a "Drive" and a number. Drive 0 is usually your internal hard drive. Then it would list drive 1, drive 2, etc, depending on how many internal and external drive sources you have connected to your computer. Then it will list your CD drives and generally show their drive letter assignments.

Next to the smaller section described above, is a larger section which shows the driver letter, size of the driver and condition (if working correctly will show "healthy")

This is the area you can right click and get a menu that will allow you to open, explore, mark the partition as active, change the driver letter, format the drive or delete a partition. (A note of caution here. Changing the driver letter on your main hard drive partition will cause windows to stop functioning. The main hard drive, or hard drive partition, is normally given the letter "C".) A hard drive may show two or more partitions with separate drive letters designated for each partition.

A drive this is having a problem may show that it needs to be formatted (status as Unformatted). This can be done from this window. An external drive, whether it is a hard drive or CD/DVD drive, can have the letter designator change done if you want to organize your external drives. There are times when a drive will not show up because the drive letter that they are programmed to use are taken. Most USB drives are programmed to us the letters "F" or "G". In this area, you can assign the USB drive any drive letter that is not being used and this will make it visible in windows.

My louck flash is formated and now i can not use the space what do i do?

Your Imation Swivel Flash Drive comes formatted and ready to use right out of the box.
If you will be using the drive exclusively with Macintosh computers, do not format the Imation Swivel Flash Drive. The formatting message appears if your Macintosh has not yet been set up to read Windows-formatted files. Refer to your Mac's user manual to learn how to enable Windows file read functionality.
Also, be aware that when you format your Imation Swivel Flash Drive with NTFS, you will not be able to store as much data as your would without formatting. The format file used by NTFS will use some of the available space on the Flash drive - for instance, on a 128MB Imation Swivel Flash Drive, you may lose up to 8MB to the NTFS format files.

How do I format my Imation USB 2.0 Swivel Flash Drive in Windows? Your drive must be set up as a single public partition, since neither Windows Explorer nor the Macintosh OS will recognize a password protected partition.
To format the drive in Windows:
  • Go to My Computer
  • Locate the corresponding drive letter for the Swivel Flash drive (i.e. removable drive F)
  • Right click
  • Choose Format from the menu
A dialog box will come up and allow you to format your Swivel Flash Drive. Depending on your operating system, you can choose to format the drive in FAT, FAT32, or NTFS.

How to I remove or resize a partition on my Imation Swivel Pro Flash Drive? To resize or remove a secure partition, you will need to do the following:
  • Open the Flash Manager software on your hard drive
  • Choose Create a partition
  • Move the slider to zero (0)
Why don't I see a drive letter for my Imation Swivel Flash Drive?

This problem occurs if you map a network drive to the first available drive letter following the drive letters for the local volumes and CD/DVD drives. When you install a new device or volume, a software called Mount Manager tries to assign drive letters to the new volumes. But since the software does not recognize mapped drive letters, it assigns the next available local drive letter to the new device. This causes a collision with the existing mapped network drive.
Since the problem is related to your Microsoft operating system, they are your best source for resolving this issue. For more information, click here.

U3 smart drive is a USB flash drive that allows you to install and run U3 smart applications from the U3 smart drive itself. When you use a drive in this manner, you can take your applications with you and run them on any Windows 2000 or XP computer.

Not only can you use the U3 smart drive for carrying your files but you can also carry your applications with your personalized settings with you as well. There is an application that is included on every U3 smart drive called the U3 Launchpad and it is your console for managing the applications that are installed on your U3 smart drive. The U3 Launchpad also provides utilities that let you customize your U3 smart drive your way.

More on U3:
Under the hood, a U3 smart drive is an advanced USB flash drive with special features that allow the U3 smart drive to take on multiple personalities depending on how it has been configured. The default configuration is composed of two drive letters or domains. One of the drive letters is a removable mass storage domain just like any other USB flash drive. The other drive letter or domain emulates a closed CD-R CD disc in a CD drive and contains the U3 system files that makeup the U3 Launchpad. When you connect the U3 smart drive to your PC, you will see two new drive letters after the Windows OS has fully set up the drive.

You will see the emulated CD-R drive which usually is indicated in file explorer by a U3 logo and another drive letter that is the mass storage domain. The mass storage drive letter will have a label with a name like "My U3 Drive" or some other manufacturer specific label. Newer versions of the U3 Launchpad lets you rename the drive letter label using the Status and Settings dialog. Older U3 Launchpads can be renamed by right clicking on its drive letter label in file explorer and selecting rename.

The drive letters assigned to the two drive domains by the Windows operating system can be any available letter but typically are between F: and Z:. The two letters may or may not be sequential and the mass storage drive letter may be before the CD-R drive letter. You do need to see both drive letters appear in order for the U3 Launchpad to run.

Does not work on my hp pavillion a265c work station running windows xp, but it works ok with my Dell Latitude D830. Dell opens with drive F: as being available for the Cruzer partition. With the HP...

Most likely your device is coded to use drive letter F: on any computer, and because that letter is already assigned to another drive on your HP, it isn't showing up.

Open your start menu, and right click on MY COMPUTER. Select MANAGE from the list that comes up. When the management console comes up, select DISK MANAGEMENT in the left-hand column.

From here, you will need to locate the drive that represents your Cruiser. Just look for the drive that has the capacity of about 8Gig, and it probably won't have a drive letter assigned to it.

Once found, right-click the drive, and choose CHANGE DRIVE LETTERS AND PATHS. From here, if there is a letter assigned to it, you will need to CHANGE the drive letter to one that is not already in use. If there is not letter assigned, you will need to select ADD and assign a letter that is not already in use by your computer. OK out of everything, and you should now see your drive in the list, and can use it.

Pen drive is not working porperly

If it is a computer with windows 95/98 you will need to install drivers (available from the usb drive manufacturers website) on the computer before you use it.
If it is a computer with Windows 2000/XP, you probably already have your E: drive assigned to a network drive or other hardware (Zip drive, extra CD Drive, etc.). Windows Likes to use E: for USB Drives (I don't know why!).
To Correct this problem, Right Click on "My Computer" and Choose "Manage". Choose Disk Management. The name of your USB-Pen Drive should show up on the list of "Disks".
Right-Click on the Name of your USB-Pen (The part to the right) and choose "Change Drive Letter and Paths..."
It will show your drive letter as E:, most likely!
Select "Change" and choose a letter you are not using.
It will warn you that if you make this change, you may loose info.
(This applies if you already had a good link to the drive and were using it!)
Click Ok, and your USP-Pen should Pop-Up!
I think this is what you are looking for.
