When I stick my Sandisk U3 USB memory stick into my computer, I get two new drives that come up. One says it’s a CD drive, and the other will show a disk drive, but when I click on it, it says there is no media in the drive. I can’t format it, I can’t get anything on it to work. My son put his school project on it just yesterday, and when he went to school, it just didn’t work anymore. I did notice last night, when I put the file on the memory stick, it was showing a CD drive at that time, which I thought was strange, but it worked, so I didn’t mess with it.
This is nuts. I have hated that U3 thing since it came out. I have never had it work, EVER, and at the time I bought this drive, just about all the Sandisk drives came with it on them, and I always figured that a fix would come out, so I bought it anyway. Now, I wouldn’t buy a U3 drive to save my life.
Anyway, is there ANYTHING I can do to reformat my memory stick to work or is it basically toast now? I don’t know what to do but I remember I paid close to $30 when I bought this thing because it was the titanium metal version that I thought would last a while, but I was wrong I guess. Can anybody here help me or do I just not buy Sandisk stuff anymore because I can’t rely on it?
