Re: my cruzer sandisk doesnt work
Are your certain the problem is with the sandisk?
Have you tried running it on a different computer to ensure the problem is not with the computer?
In any case I would also suggets reinstalling the driver.
Let me know.

Is this one of the cruzers with the slidey USB connector, and what's called "U3"on it that loads automatically?
If so, you should not need to format it as such, but if there is a lot of the U3 software on it, that can bog up the drive with unnecessary data. You can also remove the U3 software altogether, however, this is a permanent solution - make sure you will not ever want this functionality from your drive first before you remove the U3 software.
How do I get the sandisk cruzer 2.0 titanium to show up on desktop - only u3 system shows.
Yes, it did work prior on my old emac with Panther macosx v10.3.9 and on a new imac. Sometimes it would eject fine and other times after I ejected it and after the icon disappeared, - It would bring up an error message that it was ejected wrong and might have problems. That is what it said yesterday and when I tried to use it again - The only icon that shows up is the u3 system.
Is the account that your tying to access the drive with an Administrator account? If not, Log in as Administrator and try to access the new drive. If you ARE using Administrator privileges on the vista machine, the problem lies in the U3 smart driver. Try downloading and installing the drivers for the XP SP2 os on scan disks website, If vista rejects the install package off of the scan disk website, let me know and i'll extract the drivers and build an install for them for you.
Hi there, I found the solution (for all 4GB flash drives).
Initially when I plugged in my PQi 4GB flash drive with Windows Vista, there was an error message involving " Can not find the drivers needed ... "
Simply download & install "Windows Vista Service Pack 1" it is about 444 MB in size. The whole process might take about 2 hours to install, but it is worth it. These are the links where you can find your download: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/windowsvista/bb738089.aspx OR http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=090DEAF6-2EAA-4AAA-8B3B-2E199DB4A97D&displaylang=en
