According to the website, it is not possible to access the data without the password, only way i can think of is maybe hack into the device, but i would need the device to try. All the best John

There's nothing u can do but erase all your files in your usb drive and it will work after.but next save whatever's in your usb to your computer so u won't lose nothing when you forget your password.
and make sure the caps lock is off when putting in your password
peace....................

You simply cannot access your files. To reuse the drive, you must format the second larger disk.

I assume that you tired the 'secret question' that will provide a hint as to what your password was -- it is the hint that you set up when you first chose your password.

How do I crack a password on a Sandisk Mini Cruzer please?

You can't, the password is encrypted.

How do I reset my SanDisk Cruzer password?
There is no "forgot password" option to reset the password. If the password cannot be remembered, the files on the drive are not accessible. SanDisk Technical Support cannot provide a new password or alternative method to access encrypted data. The drive can still be used and reformatted by clicking the Erase button.

I have cruzer 16gb i entered wrong password 3 times and it got locked i need access to data what do i do?

It doesn't look like this is possible. For your protection, SanDisk did not build in a backdoor or reset feature in the device.

Please see SanDisk's official statement on this feature:

Dear Team Today when i try to use my CRUZER U3 (8GB) I GET MESSAGE "you have reached the maximum number of failed password...

Each U3 smart drive comes with a pre-defined number of login attempts. When you have only 3 attempts remaining, you will receive a warning message to prevent losing your data unnecessarily.
SanDisk does not have any method to bypass the password security feature on Cruzer U3 flash drives. SanDisk has not built in any back door or password reset methods. If the password feature is enabled and you exceed the number of incorrect password attempts, the drive will lock. Once the drive is locked there is no way to unlock the drive or gain access to the data stored on the device. You can only select the format feature, which will perform a secure erase (drive wipe) and data recovery will NOT be possible. U3 Cruzer flash drives which are password protected use 128bit AES encryption for data security

I have micro sandisc 1 gb card .i forgot the password how to recover that.

I myself have several U3 cruzers and I feel where ya coming from. On U3 launch if you choose the "Forgot Password" option, It will format the drive and reset the password........ BUT! ! ! Despair not my fine Cruzer addicted friend.......
http://LC-Tech.comIt may cost money, But as I said I feel your Pain and I have been there, Contact those people and purchace "Recovery Pro" and any lost data can be retrieved.Another option I am wanting to try is using the U3 uninstaller, which backs up all the data on ur PC when uninstalling U3 and replacing it after. I am not sure if that will work, In theory, I think it might, But dont Quote me...... I can let you know once I try it.

I just bought a sandisk cruzer and don't know how to set a password. From what I understand, sandisk allow you to set a password so that a password is need each time you wnat access to the usb drive. Is...

If your cruzer came with U3 then you are in luck. U3 can be set with a password that requires login before any data can be accessed. Just be sure you don't forget the password because it will have to be erased to reset it.
It can be downloaded from here.

U3 system doesn't run

Sandisk offers a program that completely wipes the Cruzer (including the partitioning), turning the drive into a pure unit. This is a permanent solution, and one cannot restore U3 functionality once this has been done. I hate the U3 stuff, so this is something I do with every Cruzer right out of the box.

Doing a search on Google for 'u3 removal' yields a few links, but at this moment, I'm running into a lot of broken links, and the original page on Sandisk's site (where I got the utiliy in the first place) is broken. I use the utility far too much to not be sure of having access to it, so I made sure to have it in my numerous 'essentials collection' CDs at home and work, as well as on my personal page in case I ever was somewhere without the CD.

One note about the version I have.... it is the Windows program, so if you have a Mac, you'll have to go to Sandisk and get the Mac version. I have no idea whether there is an option in Linux, but I'd be surprised if someone hasn't done it. Again, the Google results I got seem to have a lot of potential

Another thing, I have used this program flawlessly on a pile of 1GB and 2GB Cruzers. As far as I know, it will work on other sizes, but just so you're aware, I can't be 100% sure of that.

If you want to grab the Windows executable from my collection, go here: http://www.rawbw.com/~zio/misc/u3/U3Uninstall.zip

Hope this helps!
