Sandisk U3 Cruzer Problem

Facing very annoying problem with the brand new Sandisk U3 Cruzer on my Windows XP system. When I connect this device on any of my PC?s ports, it wont work and its U3 icon is grayed out under My Computer. Nothing happens on Double clicking it. Everything seems to be OK according to Device Manager. As a workout I downloaded U3 software again from ist official site and installed but yet the same problem.

Can anyone please help me with this? Many thanks.

Hello Buriim, you are not alone with the said problem, count me too. Even I have 1GB Sandisk Cruzer Micro drive, which directly launches Windows Explorer on connecting instead of opening U3 Launchpad. As you said, even my LaunchU3.exe is grayed out. So first we need to find out if the problem is with Sandisk U3 itself or our system is faulty.

hey guys, are you having the drive one which slips out with a button? If yes, make sure you connect it properly by slipping it all the way and is inserted completely planted in the USB connector/ports.
