Question about SanDisk Cruzer Titanium 2GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive

1 Answer

Mac user with sandisk cruzer, no room & no way to format.

My sandisk 2.0 GB titanium cruzer has very little space left on it, even though I have deleted almost everything from it. I can't format it so now it's a keychain. I'm on tiger still. WTF?

    I have a similar issue with an 8GB Cruzer. I'm looking all over the web for help..."How to format a USB on my Mac?''  You'd think somebody had a 1..2..3 posted somewhere.

    windows 7 crashed and now I cannot format or delete anything on usb drive (sandisk cruzer)

    My sandisk cruzer contour 8gb has some how partitioned itself. So when I plug it into the computer it comes up as two identical devices in drive E, & F. Then instead of having 8gb of free space it says I have a max capacity of 63.7mb. I've tried formatting but I doesn't revert back to the actual 8gb format. Any ideas???

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.

Computer not recogniing my cruzer mircro 2 gb


You didn't' say which operating system you are using. Any current version of Windows (XP, Vista, 7) should be able to load a driver and not need a download for it. In any event, you can find the driver you need on the SanDisk website here:

My 8GB SanDisk Cruzer when plugged in lights up, but it's not detected, both on Windows and on Mac, I don't know if it's still fixable... :(


Try reformatting your thumb drive. Here's how to do it on a Mac:

**THIS WILL DELETE ALL THE DATA ON THE DRIVE**

1. Open Finder
2. Applications 3. On the left column, you should see your thumb drive. Click on it.
4. Click on the "Erase" tab near the top
5. For "Format:" select "FAT32"
6. Click on the "Erase..." button

Sandisk 4GB flash drive is empty, but only shows 51.8 MB of space left. How do I reformat, or restore the 4GB of space. The drive is a 2007 - if that matters. ** I am a MAC User.


This is a known issue with mac. If you have a windows based pc, plug the usb there and delete all the files. You will be surprised to see that there are remnant files in there from mac.

I have a 4GB Cruzer which once installed is registering as having 3.73GB of used space even though there is only the LaunchU3 application and a word document (1.29mb). What is using up the space and why...


You did not really ask a question so I have no answer to give.

I will however offer a few (FREE) remarks that might convince you that your drive DOES NOT HAVE A PROBLEM.

Formatting a drive requires writing some information on it that describes how it is organized. And that takes space.
The 3.73GB you have is almost all the capacity that is available to you. The nominal capacity is just that, a nominal capacity, and different manufacturers use different definitions for the GB.

I just purchased an 8 GB flash drive sandisk and when I went to download my outlook, which is a little ver 4 gb, it is telling my I don't have enough space on the flash drive. I literally just opened it....


Try doing a full format of the drive. (Right-click on drive => Click format).

If you have the option format using the NTFS file system (default in vista/windows 7) and make sure to uncheck "Quick Format". Remember to back-up your data on the drive beforehand.

If this doesn't solve your problem the flashdrive itself may be faulty. Return it and have it replaced.

Hope this helps,

Loss of space on junk drive


With it plugged in, open the Recycle Bin on your Desktop and see if all your deleted files are in there.... if they are, empty the Recycle Bin & all your space will be freed up.

If that is not the problem, reformat the Cruzer and all your space should be available again.

If not, your Cruzer is defective.

I have a SanDisk Cruzer USB 8GB that is only allowing me 1.33 GB of space - says 6.594 GB used and there's nothing on here - how do I gain that storage space back? tx


There might be a hidden file(s) on the drive that are taking up that space. Open the drive in My Computer, click Tools > Folder Options... On the View tab, click Show hidden files and folders. Then check the drive to see if any hidden files or folders are present.

You can also try formatting the drive. Right click the drive in My Computer and click Format...

Lost space in my Sandisk Cruzer


I had the same problem. Just go to Sandisk's website and download the latest U3 removal tool, run it and it will format it back to 7.5 GB.
