You have to "Repartition" it with DOS software and then "Format" it, just like you would an "older" type hard drive. There are a few programs out there to do this. Here is a couple of links to help. http://www.tcm.phy.cam.ac.uk/~mr349/usb_flash_memory_stick.html http://www.rm.com/Support/TechnicalArticle.asp?cref=TEC134761 Hope this helps.

Window vista key needed

You can use the key on the sticker on the back of your computer or laptop. If that doesn't work, you may have to purchase a copy of Windows. Depending on when and where you bought your computer from; you may be able to contact the manufacturer of your laptop and get them to send you a copy of the Windows Installation Disk, maybe free or for 10 - 15 bucks :)

Good luck,

My flash disc is unrecognized by the pc

Try inserting it into a different USB port, or try one on a different computer. If that doesn't work, you'll have to resort to formatting the disk to continue using this flash drive. (Formatting deletes all the data on the disk though).

My sandisk u3 2gb micro cruzer doenst work at school but it works at home. why?

The school computers may least require foreign devices to be introduced either that may conpromise educational materials or damage computer structures. Usually the school computr structures least require introducing resources from elsewhere to achiev experices. Enquire from the school autorities about the measn to achieving productivy with the resources already established or make mention of materials that contribute toward achieving success. An alternative arrangement is possible to make possible accessing the USB device that may contain school material like assigment made at home. The situations where devices are impeded due to compartibility may involve computer structures. For example, sundisk USB are incompartible with computers. USB disks usually have varing compartibilities also know as versitilty. The more versitle device USBs are capable of several functions. Ocne in retail enquire about the extensive feature availble prior to acquring disk media. Usualy available are data material mediums or versatile resource management disk devices. Observe the purposes of the disk media where compartibility to computer devices is one aspect. Also, the devices usefullness would include several either as educational or else type features least achievable within certain computer structures.


Cant get to login ...just keeps going back to the apple screen where your first turn it on acts like its going to go but just goes back

You may have a software conflict. Start your computer and immediately press the "shift" key. Hold it until your computer starts. If this works, something you recently installed is interfering with the start-up process. But if the computer still will not start, try this:

Insert the original system CD and restart computer, pressing the "c" key until it starts. This will force it to start using the operating system on the disc.
Once it has started:
1.Open the Applications" folder.
2. Open the "Utilities" folder.
3. Launch Disk Utility
4. Select "First Aid" from the bar in the upper middle of the window. Your selections should include: First Aid, Erase, RAID and Restore.
5. Select "Verify Disk" from the screen that appears. Make certain you select the computer's internal hard drive in the menu on the left of the Disk Utility screen. The software will examine your hard drive and correct any errors. This may take some time.

Xp installation problem

“No Hard Disk” error displayed on XP install (SATA drive versus ATA/IDE drive) The two most most popular types of hard drives in personal computers are ATA (also known as IDE hard drive) and SATA hard drives. Many newer computers have SATA hard drives installed, but your computer may have either an (older design) ATA/IDE hard drive or a (newer design) SATA hard drive installed.
After removing Vista, when you reboot your computer, a “No Hard Disk” error may be displayed if your computer has a SATA drive installed. To fix the “No Hard Disk” error, you may need configure your computer’s BIOS settings so that it can recognize the SATA drive installed in you computer. Reconfiguring your BIOS is typically not required if your computer has an ATA/IDE hard drives installed.

Step 1: Activate your computer’s BIOS menu. The first or second screen your computer displays on status may display which key (or keys) you must press to activate your computer’s BIOS menu. You can also look in the index of your computer’s manual for “BIOS” or you can try passing the [Del] or [F1] key when text is first displayed after powering on your computer.

Step 2: BIOS menus vary by computer, but there are seldom more than a few menu categories. Review the “Main” and “Advanced” menu categories to locate your hard drive setting. When you locate the hard drive setting, be sure to note the original drive setting in the bios so that you can restore the original drive setting if your new configuration doesn’t work.

Step 3: Change the drive setting to “IDE,” then save the BIOS settings (usually by pressing the [F10] function key then restart your computer.
If changing your BIOS hard drive setting to IDE doesn’t work, return to step one and restore the original hard drive setting

If it is ok , Please vote for me...!!!!

Inserting SanDisk Cruzer in USB, REBOOTS the Computer instantly

Not sure if this is the problem, but I just found out that in some BIOS menus, there are 3 options for your USB controller...Enable...Disable...No Boot.

If you know how to get to your BIOS, it's worth a shot to make sure it is set to "No Boot" if it is an option.
