My 8 GB sandisk cruzer is read as 0 mb and i cant access any of my files on it or save files on it. i have tried formating it in windows7 by right clicking the drive and i have tried in disk management, i have also tried gparted. for some reason in linux i can read and copy files for a mabe 1 min befor the light on the drive starts flashing rapidly, after that i have to restart linux to do any thing with the drive. so i was able to get any thing i needed from the drive and now i just want to fix it. linux and windows agree the drive is formated in FAT32 but a few days ago it was acting like it was formated with FAT16 and could not fit mor than 2 gb of data but did not go to try and fix that untill today and found this new problem. i have also tried to reset it to factory setting with the u3 installer and it said it was not a sandisk drive.
i have tried the drive on several diferent operating systems xp, vista,7,ubuntu 11.04
i already got the data i needed so i am willing to do what ever it takes to fix the drive.
