Re: No files

your questions is a little confusing. Are you saying the iXpad is not detected by your computer? What operating system are you using? Have you checked device manager/ disk management for PC or System information for mac? Have you tried it on any other computers? If so do you have the same issue on all computers?

Re: No files

you are using the FW upgrade tool for the iXpand USB 2.0. From your app you have the IXpand USB 3.0 so it uses a different Firmware update tool.

 

Here is the iXpand USB 3.0 firmware update tool

Re: No files

Thanks I get it and already try it - work fine.

Actually is it necessary these files which were located on this flash before I deleted all of them?

Re: No files

No they are not needed. If you choose to lock (encrypt) a file you will need the secureaccess software to view that file on a PC but you can get secureaccess at anytime from the sandisk knowledgebase.
