Did you honestly think time was going to stand still? Or everything on this board?
My U3 driver runs on Win 7 64-bit and on Win 8.1 64 bit but sometimes it it doesn’t. I don’t know why and I suspect memory corruption somewhere by something. But if I reboot U3 works fine.
I prepared for this update by removing encryption from the drive
Where did you see that as a requirement? All I read is to disable password protection.
“Please DISABLE password protection”
I believe Sandisk has “surrendered” on this matter, apparently no longer offers the update, and apparently no longer holds out hope that U3 software may be executed within the Win 7 64-bit operating system.
Yes, they did that in 2009 when they stopped manufacturing U3 drives.
A shame, because this was simple, intuitive, and elegant stoftware
… And in case you are wondering whether I used the freeware suggested to uninstall all legacy USB drivers, the answer is “yes.” Eighteen or twenty drivers were uninstalled in the process, and Windows 7 did install the USB driver for my flash drive from scratch.
I don’t know where you saw that suggested or by whom but IMO that was a very bad thing to do. And as you found not helpful.
But for now, I am using the flash drive only on XP SP 2 systems
You really need to keep up with technology. Microsoft dropped support for XP in 2014, ie a year ago.
Any other ideas would be welcome.
If I find anything I will PM you.
