Sandisk cruzer titanium 4 g

Hello , Just wondering if anyone can help . I used my girlfriends laptop the other day and used my cruzer usb ,she looged me on under her name and then I plugged the usb in . After that my screen saver came up etc and everything was fine . I ejected the cruzer ,and she shut the laptop down ,that evening she turned the laptop on and my screen saver was still there , and she could not get onto any of here files or could not log onto the internet or anything ,she could only log on as a guest but that will not give her access to her files etc . She had somebody look at it and they said it was the cruzers fault and she needed to put it back on and re disconnect it . However we cant even do that now ,and she cant even format the hard drive everything is blocked . Can anyone offer any suggestions has the laptop been attacked by a virus or something . Thanks.

Hi there. Don't think the cruzer has to do with the problem. You should have disconnect the device after finishing the job, many people disconnect the device directly without click on the icon showing the device was connected and then shut the device before doing the disconnect. To know what has caused the blocking, you have to go to "event viewer", under control panel -> admin tools and find out there what really happened. To do this first of all yo have to log as administrator, let's do it! Start your laptop, and just after wellcome screen press F8 before "Windows XP" shows it's loading. If you have been quick enough a menu will show up. Well done! Choose "safe mode" to load, you will be carried to a logging screen. Log as administrator, and then go to event viewer as I said. Look there if a program caused the issue (I've seen it many times) and then uninstall it (you always can load it later, do you?). If you have done all of this you can try now exit and log back normally. 2 possibilities: - All went fine. Cool! Stop reading, we're over. - Nope, still blocked. Go to safe mode again and create a second account to log in with admin permission. Microsoft knowledge base will instruct you to do so if you have any doubts, but it's quite easy. If finally you can log in with the new profile, then there's a way to copy data from a corrupted profile to the new one like nothing would have happened. In the knowledge base the doc id is 811151, or look for "how to copy data from a corrupt profile". The doc id sent is in spanish probably (which makes sense since I'm spaniard :-), not sure, but I'm sure you will not have problems to find the right doc in english. If all all this fails :-(, I'd suggest post the problem you've got on event viewer, this will lead to the solution almost for sure (Microsoft is not very good OS in my opinion, and prob log/debugging is not well developed, so can't be sure.) Good luck!

I would like to transfer photos' from laptop to cruzer using Window Vista! How to do that?


Insert the Cruzer and allow your computer to acknowledge it. You will know this by going to "My Computer" and double clicking. You should see that the computer has assigned a drive letter to it. Double click that drive letter for the Cruzer. With that window left open, find were your photos are. Open the folder were the photos are located. With both windows open you can now drag the photos over to the Cruzer and drop them into the window for the Cruzer.

Good Luck

Can I password protect my Cruzer USB 2.0 Flash Drive, 4 GB for in the case I loose it?

The Cuzer has its own encryption software. Plug the Cruzer in a USB 2.0 prt on the computer. If the Cruzer LaunchPad does not execute by default, use the Windows explorer to explore My computer. You will see two icons related to your cruzer, one of them is a CD_ROM. In fact it is the LaunchPad of the U3Smart OS that come swith the Cruzer.
Click on the CD-ROM icon and an a yellow icon (U3) installs on the system tray. Click on it. A pop-up window deploys. Click the Settings button on the right side (2nd menu on the right, under explore drive). You will have to configure U3 LaunchPad Settings. Select Security and enable security.

See image4ef08f4.jpg

You will be prompted for a password.

Warning: If you use the Cruzer on Macs or Linux, you will not be able to open it on these OS's if security is enabled. You will be able to open it on Windows only.

Hope it helps.

I have a sandisk cruzer 16gb, i have put a password ont here but now it has not let me open it, my laptop does not recognise it, i need help to unlock it, i no the password but it does let me type it in...

You have a problem with USB not the Cruzer. You will not be able to open it if the computer does not recognize it. Unplug it, and try plugging it in other ports. Reboot if necessary. Use a USB hub if you have one. I have given mine up for dead multiple times but it does revive. The problem , in my opinion comes from the USB controller, especially in laoptops with a few USB ports.

If you used the SanDisk encryption software on Windows, you will not be able to open the drive under MacOS or Linux.

Hope it helps.

Cruzer will not open, it will hang the computer


If all the hardware is working proprely (Cruzer, USB ports, ) I know of one instance where a SanDisk will not open, namely if the security feature is activated and you are using the key on Linux or MacOs.
Also, if you have reformatted it to NTFS (instead of the original FAT32) it might not be recognized by LINUX and MacOS

I would suggest you turn your compturer on until your operating system is fully up, then plug in the Cruzer. The OS should recognize it. If it does not then maybe the key is defective.
Try also to access it on some other computer.

Hope that helps

4GB Sandisk Cruzer Pt. 2


I have used PEbuilder to make bootable flash drives for all the different operating systems. In my shop it's much easier to have these on hand. If you made the flash drive correctly (I assume you did) did you check the netbook's BIOS to make sure the USB port was turned on and set to allow a bootable device?
