Question about SanDisk Cruzer Micro 2GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive

1 Answer

I am entering the correct password for Sandisk Cruzer Micro 16GB. But It says the password is incorrect. I have one out of five chances left before the drive is locked permanently. I am 100% sure that I am entering the correct password, because I do it everyday. In the past on the same drive: I have seen at least a few times that the security was disabled automatically when Windows 7 has shut down issues. I have enabled the security again when this happened. Lot of times, I get a message that I should format the drive when I put the cruzer. But when I cancel the message, it is ignored. Now I am wondering how to get into it without formatting it.

You're out of luck on this one that is why they put the security feature on there. You'll either have to take a chance with another password and lose your info or format the drive and lose the info anyway. Sorry couldn't be much help.

I have cruzer 16gb i entered wrong password 3 times and it got locked i need access to data what do i do?


It doesn't look like this is possible. For your protection, SanDisk did not build in a backdoor or reset feature in the device.

Please see SanDisk's official statement on this feature:

My password protected scandisc cruzer usb stick is refusing to accept the correct password-any solution


Unfortunately, you can NOT access your user data and applications on the device without a password.

If you think you are entering the correct password, ensure that CAPS lock or NUM lock is not turned on. You should try to type your password in another application (like word or email) to ensure that it is being entered correctly. This can help you see if CAPS lock, NUM lock, or a sticky key is causing the password to actually be entered incorrectly.

Password attempts
There's a set number of attempts before U3 locks your device and you have to reformat it.
Reformatting will delete all files and applications on the flash drive.

Password hint
If you set a hint when you enabled the password protection, click Hint in the log in window to display the hint you entered. If you did not set a hint or still can not remember your password you will have to reformat the drive.
Reformatting will delete all files and applications on the flash drive.

It is recommended to keep a backup of all the data on your U3 device on your PC for safe keeping.

Lost password and need the data from a sandisk cruzer thumb drive


There is no way to recover the data or password if the password if forgotten. Also, there is a limit to the number of attemps before the device becomes unusable. There will be an error message that pops up when you get within 5 attempts from loosing the data forever.

Did you put a password hint when you established your password? If so, hit the hint button to remind yourself.

Also, make sure you are entering the password correctly. Type your password into notepad or some other program to make sure caps lock, num lock, scroll lock, or any other sticky type key isn't making you enter the password incorrectly when you think it is correct.

If you cannot remember the password, you will have to reformat the drive and loose the data.

Also, once a password is set, the drive can only be read on a windows desktop or laptop. NOT in any other device or operating system. If you need to use it on something else like a camera, printer, game console, or a Mac, etc., then log into the drive on a PC and then disable the password feature.

I hope this helps.

Can't open my sandisk cruzer 16gb


Dont worry about being prompted, that is an OS option and you may of turned off by accident. When you insert the flash drive into your USB port, does th elight on the drive ligh up? If not your flash drive may of gone bad.

If it does light up, click on "My Computer" and see if it shows up there.
