Probably the easiest way to solve this is to add NTFS support to your Mac.

You can do this by downloading and installing this FREE software.

Let me know if doesn't work so I can provide you with another solution.

    If you want it to work every mac then you need to format the drive with Mac under Disc Utility. You need to ERASE the drive so that the FORMAT is MS-DOS

    MS-DOS is the key! It will work on both PC and MAC in that format.

    You can try this.

    If you're getting FAT errors there might be a problem with the drive. I'd recommend you formatting via a MAC it's much easier. Otherwise the link I sent you will work for PC.

    Let me know what happens. I wanna help you solve this.

My sandisk 8 gm is not open , when i try to open it as me that the disc drive is not formatted, do you want to formatte it now ?. what i will do. please help me becouse it inculded important office file...

The reason for which you are not able to open the pen drive is that Pen drive was formatted on a different computer with a different file system from a different OS and then the file was copied into it. And the computer on which you are trying to open the pen drive is having probably different OS which does not support that file system Pen drive was formatted with.

So all you have to do is to open the Pen drive on a computer that has OS same as on which file was copied into.

do you use windows vista or windows 7 OS?
They have a feature to use an external pen drive as a virtual system memory.
Try backing up all your data to your hard drive then full formatting it choosing NTFS system.
If you use OS which are older than Win XP, you need to format it in FAT32 system instead.

Hope this helps.
