    You can do it with either of the 2 options:
    1.You could use "disk utility" (you found it in folder utilties inside the applications folder) to format the usb pen in the mac filesystem hfs+.

    2.Plug in the USB drive. The disk should mount on its own. Open Disk Utility (Applications > Utilities > Disk Utility). The flash drive should be listed on the left side of the window. Click on it. Click the Erase tab. Make sure FAT is selected as the format and click the Erase button.

    In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

When i plug my 4g cruzer micro usb memory stick nothing happens the cpmuter dosnt read that it is plugged in


Try a different USB device on each of the USB ports on your computer.
Hopefully, all your USB ports are working correctly.

Try a different USB port on your computer.
Hopefully, the SanDisk will be detected on one of the ports.

Try a USB port on a different computer.
If the SanDisk still is not detected, then spend $10 to buy a new 4GB flash-drive.

Sandisk 4GB flash drive is empty, but only shows 51.8 MB of space left. How do I reformat, or restore the 4GB of space. The drive is a 2007 - if that matters. ** I am a MAC User.


This is a known issue with mac. If you have a windows based pc, plug the usb there and delete all the files. You will be surprised to see that there are remnant files in there from mac.

How to install new U3 launchpad on my SanDisk Cruzer Micro 4GB ??? thx


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.

Thank you,
Norse

Corrupted files on cruzer micro 4gb


Due to the U3 technology, i.e. the files you deleted which were on the drive when you got them, you may have caused the drive to malfunction because the U3 software was not uninstalled, but rather deleted.

Please attempt to reinstall the U3 software on the Sandisk website, named "U3 Launchpad Installer"
which can be found at this link: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx

If you are still having problems, either reinstalling the software or with corrupt files, please report any errors exactly as you see them.

First thing i would do is try to do a checkdisk in windows. Double click my computer > right click the thumb drive > click properties >click tools> click checkdisk. If all comes up ok with no errors try formatting the drive.

Let me know!
