Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a new Cruzer USB Flash Drive, which I bought while on holidays in Finland. While there I stored all my photos etc on it. Now, back home, when I plugged it into my USB port, it asked to install something. I started to install, but when a message came up saying that it may stuff up my pc, I cancelled it. After that, when I plug it in, nothing happens, and the USB flash drive is not recognised by my pc. Is there anything I can do to fix this? Or do I need to try a different pc? Thanks, Marja

I just bought a PNY 4 GB High speed usb 2.0 drive I would like to put my pictures on it how do I do it? from my computer.


Insert the USB drive into any USB port of your computer. When you do, you should see a window pop up that asks what you would like to do now. Click the option to browse the files. You should now have a window open for your USB drive. Next, open up my computer and find your pictures on your hard drive. Once you have found them, you can click and drag the pictures from the hard drive window to the USB drive window. Do this as necessary for any or all the pictures.

Bought a 2gig maxell flash pen and wanted to use it for storing my work on it but i cant seem to work it and i need to save my work on this flash pen can some one please help


If you are using Win98 the problem is the USB ports themselves. You must locate and install USB drivers to make them functional. Other than that the USB should reconise the flash pen after a few minutes.
Now if it see it, to store in the drive, Save the information to a file/folder and then right click and choose SEND TO and pick the letter drive that is your flash pen and that will do it. If you can do drag and drop open the window that has your info and open a window that shows your pen drive left click and hold it down a drag it to the pen drive - when you see the + just release the left click and it should be on the pen drive.
Hope this helps you, good luck, please leave a rating, thank you kindly

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.

I have a cruzer mini 256MB. After a long time of working fine it now is recognised as a ADIR ROM device and i cannot get to the data. How can I fix this or get it repaired ?


I just expereienced this same issue and this is what I did to resolve.

Step 1. Back up your registry.
Step 2. Look and see if you now have a key called HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Enum\USB\Vid_0781&Pid_1234 and a key called HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Enum\USB\Vid_0781&Pid_5150.

Step 3. Delete Both (Note the the latter is the one for your Cruiser but you should start fresh.)

Step 4. Reboot (Make sure you don't have the flash drive plugged in.)

Step 5. Once logged back on, install the flash drive. It will still go thru the routine of hardware1.gif discovery but most likely will not work correctly. You should notice that the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Enum\USB\Vid_0781&Pid_1234 is back but the later is still gone.

Step 6. Change the following keys to the values indicated..
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Enum\USB\Vid_0781&Pid_1234\12345678
DeviceDescrip FROM ADirRom TO Sandisk Cruzer
LocationInformation FROM ADirRom TO Sandisk Cruzer

and ADD the Following
Driver {36FC9E60-C465-11CF-8056-444553540000}\0013
Service USBSTOR

Step 7
Remove the drive and reinstall. If you are as lucky as I, you may still get an initial message about can't find a driver for the Adir, but then the hardware detection will start anew and correctly recogize as a Cruiser Mini.

"Disk not ready" message


Do a search on your XP machine for autoexec and then right click in the bar that says "Name, Size etc. and make sure to select "type". You will see that the autoexec is of type "NT" and not type bat. then try again.
