I just picked up a 1GB USB Flash drive. It has this U3 crap on it and I was wondering if I could just format the drive without making the drive useless. It is partitioned into two separate drives, one for the U3 files and one for data storage. I assume that I can do this but wanted to double check. If there is anything special that I need to do please elaborate. Thanks everyone and Happy New Year.

I had the same problem... I wouldn't have even bought it if I'd known. However, sandisk has a solution: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1415

Same here, the only reason I bought it was to help speeding up the transfer of files from my old to my new computer. Couldn't even get it to show on windows 98. What good is USB if they drop the Universal part? Thanks. Hope it'll work on the Win 98 now. If not, it still works in the Win XP computer.

Thanks.:cool:

I was wondering if you were able to get the drive to work with windows 98 (if you even have that OS). I removed the U3 and then downloaded the win 98 driver but it doesn't recognize the cruzer micro. I'm bummed, I thought this might do it.

I don't use 98 on a regular basis, but I do know that you'll need specific drivers because 98 is not set up to recognize most external devices automaticly (like XP).

SanDisk does have intallation instructions for 98SE, which *should* work for all versions of windows 98:

good luck! Let me know if you get it to work or not.
