Question about SanDisk Cruzer Micro 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive

1 Answer

I have a sandisk 8 gb flash drive which was working fine up until now. I have tried it on my personal comp as well as my laptop in multiple usb ports and I get the same problem - It lights up once then nothing, no prompt to open, no recognition under my computer. Is there a way to get my info that is on it or am I out of luck? I would like to do this without having to pay someone to do it.

If you tried it on more than 1 computer and it still has issues, sounds like you may be out of luck. If you can get a hold of a different OS like Mac or Linux, you may still be able to read it. But if not, you wont be able to keep anything. Good luck.

Hello, I have Sandisk Cruzer blade 4 gb pendrive. But now it shows I/O error while copying data to it. please give a solution.


Copy all the files from it to your 'C:' drive, and burn the files to one DVD-recordable disk.
Then, responsibly recycle the SanDisk, and spend $10 to buy a new flash-drive.
Copy the files from the 'C:' drive, or the DVD disk onto the new flash-drive.
Keep multiple copies of your files, just in case this "new" flash-drive also "fails".

4 Gb Sandisk flash drive won't read and won't format. When I put it in Win7 comes up and says that it must be formatted before it can be used, but when I try to format it, Windows gives one of its usual...


I've had some luck getting this to work again by using the linux ext2 format utility to format it back to the windows fat16 format, then use windows to format it again. There is something that windows doesn't like about the fat table when ext2 does it so you need to do this double format. Doesn't work all the time but does quite a bit.

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,

Probably the flash drive is not getting enough power from the computer. Try to connect the flash drive to the USB port located at the back of the tower.
