Re: SanDisk 1GB Cruzer Titanium USB Flash Drive - device...
I've had this same problem with a number of Cruzer Titaniums. In my case, it seemed to have been due to data corruption. There seems to a section of the flash that is dedicated not to storage but to helping the computer recognize the device. Once this gets trashed, I don't know of a way that the end user can fix the problem. What a waste, because in all other aspects the device is probably still ok. Kind of like a PC with a corrupted BIOS image.

u should try to format it using memory card reader in PC like as other drives or devices.
simply right click on the new drive of memory card and click on the format. It will be formatted. and ur problem is solved.
looking for ur feedback
Which antivirus are u using? U should update it. or Try with Norton or MCaffe antivirus.
other wise u can search for any hidden files exists in the drive. For this goto Tools then FolderOptions then View then check Show hidden files and folers and Search the virus name by using Start\search options
It sounds like it is trying to use the E: drive and it is already in use? If so while you have the flash drive installed right click on my computer /click on manage / on the left side click on disk management / on the right side you should see the C: drive with other if you see the flash drive in this list with no drive letter right click on it / click on chang drive letter and give it a G: or other letter not in use. you will get a warning click ok and exit out your drive should appear. (note this is for windows xp)
Not unless you are using Windows98, your PC should automatically recognize the SanDisk Cruzer Titanium as a "Removable Storage/Device". Driver is not required for Windows ME, W2k or XP.
If for some reason the SanDisk Cruzer Titanium (non-U3 devices) is not recognizable, then perhaps it is not a problem with the PC but with the SanDisk. Pls try all other USB ports of your PC (front and back). The SanDisk website provides utilities/software for this kind of eventuality. They are Sansa Firmware Updater and Sansa Connect Recovery Tool. Both are available at http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx.
Pls be forwarned that some utilities can and will reset your SanDisk to default and any or all data can and may be deleted.
Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things are or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
