Possible errors in the flash drive , it will be good to search for files using the search key and delete them , then the drive can be formatted.
it is the errors in the drive due to some virus /malware that it is not detected.

My sandisk cruzer 4 GB pendrive ws working fine but now whenever i try to format\copy\cut it shows location 0 with used space 0 free space 0 what should i do


Your flashdrive usually shows 2 drives when inserted to your computer, one is the U3 drive and the other one is the removable disk drives. U3 drive is your separate partition for the U3 system and in order for you to store, copy, format your flashdrive, you should be selecting the removable disk drive, not the U3 drive. U3 is a read only memory drive that is responsible for your U3 to work (just like portable applications). Hope this helps.

My SanDisk 1gb flash drive says i only have 1 try left at trying to unlock it. I didn't even know i had locked it. Can you please Help?



This will get the drive back, but you WILL lose the data. If you need the data. I do not know the answer. Repost your question to go to Sandisk site below


'.............U3 smart drives come preinstalled with the U3 Launchpad which emulates the Windows OS start menu, and controls program installation and hence facilitate the portability of software. However, if you would like to use the USB flash drive or memory key as a pure normal USB mass storage device, or you don't use operating system that U3 supports (i.e Windows XP and Windows 2000 operating systems), or you simply feel that U3 Launchpad and applications have bugs such as unable to eject due to locked files in use, consent on privacy and automatic installation of U3 software and pop-up etc, you can uninstall and remove the U3 Launchpad from the USB storage device.


To remove and delete the U3 Launchpad, you need to download U3 Launchpad uninstallers or U3 Launchpad Removal Tool that remove the U3 Launchpad and re-configure the USB drive to be a single mass storage USB drive. Currently, U3 Launchpad uninstallers are only available for and must be run on Windows XP or Windows 2000 machine. When uninstalling, the U3 smart drives USB device has to be plugged in with U3 Launchpad running.


U3 Launchpad Removal Tool for SanDisk USB U3 devices can be downloaded here, http://u3.sandisk.com/


WARNING: U3 Launchpad removal is irreversible. You won't be able to install U3 again. Beside, backup your data before begin uninstallation process as ALL data will be erased.


UPDATE: It's impossible to reinstall U3 LaunchPad........."

When I plug my new SanDisk 2GB Cruzer USB 2.0 Flash Drive into my computer, it says the drive is read only- How can I fix this?


If this is the U3 SanDisk Cruzer....U3 drives present themselves as two devices. One of them appears as a read-only CD drive that contains all the **** programs and the other is the writeable USB stick part. It comes with two partitions on it, one for data, and the other called "U3 Partition" which is read-only.

How to download softwares to my sandisk u3 flashdrive


Hello,
As you may know your U3 Smart drive has a small OS that allows you to run Your applications on another computer. This OS shows as a CD-ROM icon on which you click to execute the LaunchPad (TheOS) of the Cruzer. In addition to that you have the icon of a regular drive. (Usually the Drive letters are consecutive G and H for exemple.) When you safely remove one both are unmounted at the same time.

Once the LaunchPad has been executed, it installs an icon on the sys-tray. When clicked, that tray icon opens a pop Up window, giving a menu of the applications installed and which you can run on the host computer, but from your drive (U3 Smart Programs on the left) and on the right various menu options
  1. to explore the drive,
  2. configure the drive(settings),
  3. add programs (to download additional U3 programs),
  4. and enable security. etc.
7f42ffc.jpg

So if you want to download additional U3 Programs to run from you drive you use the Add programs (option 3 in the list above)
However, if you just want to put regular files on the drive (pictures, text documents, etc.) you do as you woul for nay drive: You drag and drop the files, not on the CD-ROM icon, but on the other drive. You can also use the Explore option (option 1 in the list above) to open the second drive to see what is in it, add files, remove files etc.

Hope it helps

U3 Flash Drives - What Are They and How to Remove U3 Software if Desired


U3 Smart Drives are regular USB flash drives with a twist. Programs can be installed on them and the data from those programs will travel with you. In other words, U3 Drives are computers on a stick. Although the technology is relatively new (the company started in January 2005), there is a wide variety of programs that can be used on these supercharged USB drives. 
One of the most important advantages of using a U3 enabled flash drive is the ability to take your documents, photos, email, address book, favorites, webpage logins, and more with you wherever you go.  


Of course you can backup all these files on a normal USB flash drive or other removable device, but the advantage of using a U3 drive is the programs along with the data are on the USB drive. This means you'll be able to work on a report, view photos, look up an email address, and more simply by plugging the device into a computer and pulling it up. You dont necessarily have to take a laptop with you anymore to get your work done. 

You can't make a "normal" USB flash drive into a U3 enabled drive. The U3 system software is pre-loaded on the drives and cannot be added to a normal drive. When a U3 drive is plugged into a computer, it creates two drives. One is a CD drive with the system software on it and the other is a removable drive that you can use to store information.
