Having a "device not recognized" issue with a Sandisk 512mb Titanium flashdrive. The blue LED won't light up consistently unless I repeatedly reinsert it into USB hub a number of times, and it when I luck-out and it does stay lite, I still get will not function. I read that there are issues with the U3 platform, whatever that is. Any ideas??? Thx, Mark

I have one of the Sans disk also. I find its the connector itself. I really like the Sans disk, but it not working is a real pain. I find if I'm a little more gentle, like inserting it slowly, it seems to be recognized more often.

Problem


Hello!
Hopefully I can try to walk you through a process that I would use.  First check to see if the flashdrive is damaged.  Usually the cases don't break, but the USB connector itself takes a lot of hits/damage/wear.  You should be able to see 4 metallic contacts on the USB connector and they should be in good shape.  Blow out any dirt/garbage in the connector as well.
Next is to see when you plug it in if the LED on it lights up at all.  If there is no light whatsoever, it is one of two things, either the flashdrive is totally broken or you have a failled USB port.  Either one is possible.  If possible, take the flashdrive and test it on another system, or at least another USB port.  That will give you some important information.
Assuming that the LED lights, then it is a question of getting Windows to recognize the drive.  If there is nothing important on the drive, fdisk the drive in DOS, then format it, and then Windows should recognize it, allowing it to be used.
If you have no LED lighting on the flashdrive, after testing on another system as well, get another flashdrive (or return this one if under warranty), since there are no real parts to service/fix.
Hope this helps out!

Cannot get my USB memory stick to install on XP


I have a sandisk cruzer, titanium 512mb. Model: SDCZ3 512 I have used this to store massive amounts of data that I frequently need to access. Recently, when I plugged the device into my computer's USB, I received the following message: "USB Device Not Recognized" After double clicking on this message, I got the USB Root Hub. The last item on the tree stated: "Unknown Device." I double-clicked on the unknown device, and in the Device Status box, received the following message: "No Drivers installed for this device. If you are having problems with this device, click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter." I attempted to troubleshoot, but the device remains unrecognized. How can I access the data I have stored on this device? I have even tried to install the drivers automatically, but it would not istall succesfully.

USB device not recognized


corruption.
not fixable.
device can not tell os what it is. that is the most basic of functions.
without id, it can not set configuration needed to access data.
probably already lost data anyway.
replace is about the only option.

sorry for the news
good luck

Cruzer Scandisk 2.0 titanium


Hi, Not unless you are using Windows98, your PC should automatically recognize the SanDisk Cruzer Titanium as a "Removable Storage/Device". Driver is not required for Windows ME, W2k or XP. If for some reason the SanDisk Cruzer Titanium (non-U3 devices) is not recognizable, then perhaps it is not a problem with the PC but with the SanDisk. Pls try all other USB ports of your PC (front and back). The SanDisk website provides utilities/software for this kind of eventuality. They are Sansa Firmware Updater and Sansa Connect Recovery Tool. Both are available at http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx. Pls be forwarned that some utilities can and will reset your SanDisk to default and any or all data can and may be deleted. Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things are or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.
