Question SanDisk Cruzer mini 128mb not picked up by machine

Hi there!

I found this website by accident since I was looking for solutions for my USB stick in the Windows environment... However, please let me know if you have experienced similar problems ---

Spec of USB stick:
Cruzer mini 128 MB
model SDCZ2-128

When the stick is plugged into the USB port, the pc detects this as an external drive. BUT --- that is the end of it --- I can't see the drive and all the device manager is saying "device working"....

I hope this is not offending anyone - that I use Windows and come to Linux forums... The use of Windows is not out of my choice and I sincerely wish someone can share their experience with me and fidn a solution.

Thanks 10^6

Well, I can't speak to your specific situation; it would help if you could tell us a little more about your setup, e.g. brand of hardware you're running, version of Windows, etc.

I just recently bought 10 SanDisk Cruzer mini *256* MB sticks for my organization, and had no problem with getting them to work right out of the package. We're running Windows 2000. Note that for Windows98 you need to install a driver to use a memory stick. I'm pretty sure that Windows95 and before don't support USB at all.

Hope this helps,
