Here’s why I ask.
I have a Cruzer Blade USB Flash Drive (8GB)
1) I backed up some files from my Windows XP laptop using the instructions at
2) I then deleted all of the SanDisk software that came with the flash drive since I was not using it. Basically I am using it like a CD-RW.
3) I took it to my sister’s house to back up some of her files – same OS.
4) When I plugged it in I opened the flash (E:</font>) drive. But it showed no files and would not let me copy to it. I.E., I could not read it or write to it.
QUESTION: Was my mistake step 2? In other words, are their some SanDisk files you need to leave on the flash if you intend to use it on a second computer?
If yes, can I download these from your website?
