USB Flash drive problem
I have a 2gig sandisk micro cruzer that has worked fine in XP. I just got a
new Acer laptop and Vista does assign a drive letter to it so I cannot
access it.
It shows on the task bar as a USB storage device. In addition when I try
stop it in the safely remove hardware it stops responding and will not it
turn off. I tried the safe node today and the USB drive woks fine there.
Thanks for any help.


Brian

Hi
The Cruzer is a U3 enabled when you plug it shows the U3 Launch Pad. If you
do not use the U3 get rid of it.

Thanks for the reply. I removed everything from the cruzer on my XP machine
formated it and now Vista says it is an unrecognized USB device.
