Question about SanDisk Cruzer Micro 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive

1 Answer

My PC won't recognize that the flash drive is connected, other than to add its "Removable Disk" icon into the My Computer folder. The cursor just keeps flashing the hourglass. This worries me severely because I don't know if I can ever trust it as a backup. Fortunately, I don't THINK I have any files on it that I need.

Remove it, and try another usb port. Most of the newer drives have "software" that tries to run. It's possible it's just hung up. If after you try another port and a reboot; then, consider it lost.

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.
