I love this little gadget. When I would plug it in I could access it by going into " My Computer " where it would appear as F drive.
Now recently when I plug it in it doesn't appear. I uninstalled it and plugged it in. Windows found the software as sandisk mini cruzer and then as a disk drive.
When I checked in my folder it wasn't there. I found it in the device manager in disk drive along with my hard drive but also showed up in the usb hub.
Hope you can help.

A usb Flash drive gous into a USB port. Just push the thing out and plug it into the USB slot on the front or back of the computer. The computer should detect it immediately. Eventually a little balloon will pop up telling you its ready. Then windows will open a folder so you can store stuff on it.
Remember to click on the systray when you're done, you know where the baloon came from, and "EJECT" the device, or safely remove, then confirm, it will ask.
Its a plug and play removable flash drive (other call this flash disk, memory stick and or pendrive).
The one thing they have in common is that when you insert this gadget in any usb slot in your computer, it acts as a removable drive where you can store and save files. On your computer, this is usually assigned as removable drive (F:).
Plug it and unplug in any computer you want and share the files that you stored in it.
The Short Answer to this is Yes. I have one and it works perfectly fine in windows 7. The only thing that does not work is that actual cruzer software itself. By this i mean that little window that comes up on xp comptuers. However you can still access it under my computer and you can still stop the device on in the tray icons. I hope this helps
Check you have your chipset drivers installed if not go to manufacture's website and download from there what Operating System do you have?Right click over my computer drop down to properties,click on hardware,click on device manager and make sure there is no yellow explanation points and see that all drivers are installed correctly.Have you plugged the sandisk into another computer to see if it is accessible on another machine?
It saves data information on it, from your computer so you can take that information to other computers - in other words it transports information around easily.
Think of these flah drives as a storage device!
Some of the better one's have securities on it, such as:
-> Finger print detectors
-> Partitions, meaning that half the unit can be accessed by anyone, and the other half is screened (protected)
They are great little appliances... I love all of my flash drives.
Option A: 1. Plug it in. 2. My Computer > select Removable Disk (if this doesn't work chose option B)
I'm pretty sure that the Cruzer Micro has a software that needs to be installed on the computer to be able to access files.
Option B: 1. Plug it in. 2. My Computer > Open U3 System (this is the application installer for the flash drive. 3. after installing there should be a little icon on the bottom right of the screen thats orange and white click on it and it will pull up an interactive menu for your flash drive.
