I just expereienced this same issue and this is what I did to resolve.

Step 1. Back up your registry.
Step 2. Look and see if you now have a key called HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Enum\USB\Vid_0781&Pid_1234 and a key called HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Enum\USB\Vid_0781&Pid_5150.

Step 3. Delete Both (Note the the latter is the one for your Cruiser but you should start fresh.)

Step 4. Reboot (Make sure you don't have the flash drive plugged in.)

Step 5. Once logged back on, install the flash drive. It will still go thru the routine of hardwareI have a cruzer mini - 1.gif discovery but most likely will not work correctly. You should notice that the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Enum\USB\Vid_0781&Pid_1234 is back but the later is still gone.

Step 6. Change the following keys to the values indicated..
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Enum\USB\Vid_0781&Pid_1234\12345678
DeviceDescrip FROM ADirRom TO Sandisk Cruzer
LocationInformation FROM ADirRom TO Sandisk Cruzer

and ADD the Following
Driver {36FC9E60-C465-11CF-8056-444553540000}\0013
Service USBSTOR

Step 7
Remove the drive and reinstall. If you are as lucky as I, you may still get an initial message about can't find a driver for the Adir, but then the hardware detection will start anew and correctly recogize as a Cruiser Mini.

I lost the directions for using a micro mini


Find a USB-port on your computer.
Insert the flash-drive into the USB port.
Windows will report "found new hardware", and will assign a "drive-letter" (e.g., 'A:' is your diskette drive, 'C:' is your disk-drive, 'D:' is your CD-ROM device) to the device.

Then, use "Windows Explorer" to drag-and-drop files onto the new drive-letter (probably 'E:').

My 2 GB cruzer just stopped working


Hi there
there are many things that could go wrong it is either a usb driver error which would cause a driver conflict and the device not to be recongised or the drive is dead since flash memory has a limited read and write life .To solve this problem you need to try both or one (if one of the solutions work)

(To solve usb driver conflict)
try using it on another computer and if it recognises then follow the instructions on here http://www.aeonity.com/trialerror 

(To recover files)
Try it on another computer
if it recognises on the other computer go to start>run and type cmd
then type chkdsk(space)(letter of drive with :)(space)/F 
this should fix the errors on it 
If it recognises on the otehr computer but files are missing you can recover your data by using recuva (www.recuva.com) just save it, install and open it (it has instructions

USB flash disk not working


Assuming you are using a Cruzer Micro Drive with U3 Smart, things can be a little confusing because the drive actually shows up as two independent devices. When you insert the drive, there should be two devices showing up in your list of drives. One of them is installed as a CD Rom Drive and the other one is a Removable Drive. If you double click on the CD Rom Drive instead of the Removable Drive and you don't have any U3 applications mapped to the CD Rom Drive, then you'll get an insert disk message because Windows thinks that the CD Rom Drive is empty. Just use the Removable Drive if you want to simply install and transfer files.

SanDisk 1GB Cruzer Titanium USB Flash Drive - device not recognised


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.
