  1. The cruzer utilities for mac only allow you to remove U3 or use the password protection. the U3 Launchpad will not function on MAC.

2. the only thing you would need this utility for is if your device is password protected.

  1. I was told by sandisk support that there is no plans for a Leopard update.
