Question about SanDisk 2GB Cruzer Micro SDCZ62048A10 Hard Drive

Sandisk Cruiser not recognized

My Sandisk Cruiser has worked great for over 18 months. All of a sudden, it is no longer recongized by any computer.

I used the Windows Device Manager and tried to update the driver, but I have the latest version already installed. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the driver, only to have the installation fail.

Then I tried plugging it into a new computer, and the Cruiser tried to the install its drivers as it normally would. However, an error always occurs during the installation, and the drive cannot be read.

As I have a ton of info on this drive, I would be ecstatic if anyone could help.

    It's a 4 GB Cruzer Micro.

  • rileysisu Aug 29, 2008

    Unfortunately, my Cruzer is not recognized by any computer, thus I am unable to add a shortcut to the disk.

  • rileysisu Aug 29, 2008

    I tried the "add a shortcut" theory, but was unsuccessful.

  • rileysisu Aug 29, 2008

    I've tried using the drive on 3 different computers, one of which I had never used before. My drive tried to install it's drivers (as it normally would), but an error occurs each time and the installation fails.

  • rileysisu Aug 29, 2008

    Other USB drives work on my computer.

  • rileysisu Aug 29, 2008

    I can't erase the files on my disk because no computer will display the drive.

    Besides, I desperately need to recover these files.

  • rileysisu Sep 11, 2008

    As suggested, I took my drive to 2 different technicians for data recovery. Both stated that the drive has a hardware problem, not a software problem.



    One also mentioned that the drive was running too hot and burned itself out. Is this possible?



    If so, is there any possible way to still recover my data?

See if any bios updates are available, do check for your model mtrbd/system. Also, USB updates themselves from the vendor. XP should support USB drives alone, but glitches are known, in some cases to the flash drives themselves. I found one brand to be problematic, if that's yours try it in another system, that's Memorex brand. Here's a helpful link:

    I do a fair amount of data recovery work as well and that's certainly a good idea. Stop attempting to use the drive until data recovery can start as it would hinder what can be recovered.

    it's hard to say why exactly the drive failed.... one other thing to do and i haven't read all the posts so you may have tried this.... plug in the device.... go to start... my computer... right click then select manage from the menu.... when the window pops up... you will see disk management... look at all the drives shown there.... cruizers have a tendency to show up as more then one drive... any drives there close to the size of the usb stick ?? if so ... note what the drive letter is... then go back to my computer... click on it ... is that drive letter shown there ?

    I do have one alternative solution although i do data recovery i've never tried this on a usb stick... i can't tell you exactly that your data would not be damaged... if it works the drive should be recognized and hopefully you would get your data back...

External HDD no longer recognized by new win7 PC


Probably not the right answer for your problem. Mine is an external 1 TB Simple Drive. Mine wouldn't respond at all. I unplugged the power cable from the back of the hard drive and replugged it in and instantly it worked. I had tried rebooting the computer, plugging/unplugging over and over into the computer and that didn't work.

My U3 Smart SanDisk Cruzer Micro 2.0GB USB Drive Not Recognized


We can fix it -- and recover the data (provided it is recoverable -- which it generally is). If we don't get your data back, we ship the drive back to you and you pay nothing. We've been recovering data for over 16 years and are successful about 85% of the time.
