My 32 GB Cruzer Malfunctioned

When I connect my flash drive I get a error message from Windows say it has malfunctioned or does not recognise the device. This drive was a replacement for a flash drive I brought from Best Buy and it did the same thing. Sandisk replaced it and it worked when I tested it when it came. I get the error code 43. Sandusk must be using faulty parts and I will not be buying Sandisk no more, all my other flash drives work flawlessy and I tried it on all three of my systems.

This might help you:

It did not work and being I had tried it on three systems, I have come to the conclusion that the drive is faulty. Also if the USB drivers were faulty it would list all my flash drives as unrecognised.

Maybe so. You should contact SanDisk directly for a warranty replacement.
