To be fully U3 compliant, an application has to be programmed to clean up its own data from the local machine. It must also be packaged in U3's special program format. U3 applications will only run from a U3 device. U3 programs can be downloaded from the U3 website and other places. Applications include Opera and Skype and do not need to be installed on the computer.
Information on building U3 compliant applications and the U3 software development kit were available to registered developers at the official U3 website. Individuals must register (as a company) to download the SDK, or participate in the forums.Applications that do not require installation steps in order to run can easily utilize U3 with little or no modification by taking steps to either not modify the host systems files or registry, or undoing all changes when the application terminates. A wizard which packages distribution files and creates the special "manifest" file is provided.
That means any TV shows, movies, or other Web videos found on Veoh can be downloaded to the drive and played on any PC, without need for an Internet connection. Veoh has content from MTV Networks, ABC, Warner Bros., ESPN, Lions Gate, and CBS (parent company of CNET's publisher, CBS Interactive).
The latest to arrive is the SanDisk Ultra Backup USB Flash Drive, which combines push-button backups with SanDisk's U3 smart-drive technology that allows a user to store Windows PC user preferences, profiles and settings as well as download and launch a limited number of applications from the flash drive.
The SanDisk Ultra Backup also offers custom applications with the U3 technology for download, including YouSendIt, which allows users to send files as large as 100MB over a secure connection from any computer to any email address without installing anything. If there's a network interruption, the YouSendIt U3 Application restarts a file upload where it left off once connectivity is re-established.
Under the U3 menu screen you'll find a list of any U3-enabled programs that you've downloaded as well as several management menu items, including add/delete programs, drive settings, help/support options, and the security setup menu for enabling encryption and setting up your password. You'll also find the SanDisk Backup application, which enables the "one-touch" back-up feature on the drive.
When I plug in the encrypted sandisk u3 flash drive to one of my laptops, Ican see two drives, namely:U3 System (D:) Removable Disk (E:)When I click on the "U3 System (D:)", I can see three files:autorun.inf LaunchPad.zip LaunchU3.exeHow do I manually launch the sandrive u3 system on this laptop so that itasks for my password?Note: On other laptops, it works fine. I suspect someone disabled flashdrive autoplay (which from googling, is a good thing but I can not findinstructions on how to run the ubiquitous sandrive U3 encryption onceautoplay is disabled!Help!How do I manually run the sandisk u3 encryption program so that it asks formy password?
BTW, the SanDisk U3 USB flash drive autoplay encryption dialog does pop upon other Windows XP laptops so I'm sure it's something different about thislaptop.This laptop won't autoplay anything so I suspect autoplay has been turnedoff (again, this is a good thing).All I am asking (and I'm not sure whom to ask) is ........How do I manually tell the sandisk u3 encryption system to run?I installed TweakUI version 18.104.22.168 and checked "My Computer > AutoPlay >Enable Autoplay for CD and DVD drives" and I checked "My Computer >AutoPlay > Enable Autoplay for removable drives" but it didn't do anything.Besides, I don't want to enable autoplay (I like that it won't autoplay). All I want to do is manually run the sandisk u3 encryption program to askme what the password is.But, when I doubleclick on D:\LaunchU3.exe, nothing happens except itbrings up an empty folder on my WinXP hard drive C:\Documents andSettings\sherry\Application Data\U3\There must be a way to manually run the sandisk u3 encryption dialog, yes?
On another windows PC, I can certainly unencrypt the contents of theSandisk U3 flash drive. That isn't the problem. I WANT the data encrypted. I just want the SanDisk U3 program to ASK for the password. But without autoplay, the Sandisk U3 flash drive doesn't ask for thepassword on this computer.When I click on the Sandisk U3 LaunchPad.zip, I can unzip the files butnone of them, when I click on them, do anything to bring up the password.Likewise, I can't get the autorun.inf to do anything. Here is what the autorun.inf file contains.[AutoRun] open=LaunchU3.exe -aicon=LaunchU3.exe,0 [Definitions]Launchpad=LaunchPad.exeVtype=2[CopyFiles]FileNumber=1File1=LaunchPad.zip[Update]URL= _installer.asp?custom=22.214.171.124&brand=CruzerBFG[Comment]brand=CruzerBFGHow can I get a sandisk u3 usb flash drive to autorun manually?
>> How can I get a sandisk u3 usb flash drive to autorun manually?> > I don't use U3. But looking at your autorun.inf, what gets auto-run> is "LaunchU3.exe -a". Have you tried to run "LaunchU3.exe -a"?
Tim, I tried your sandisk link at the top of this page and it says no longer a valid link. I have a Flash drive with a "virus" on it and it keeps flashing there and not there. Won't exist long enough for me to reformat. Looking for solution.
Thanks for this tip, but sadly the installer detects that my drive is not a Sandisk drive and refuses to run. If anyone finds a solution for a 4GB Maxell Retractor then please post it! Their website only seems to have win98 drivers on it.
I tried many solutions and failed. Before read till the end of the page, I tried (I have 1 note with windows and another MacBook Pro) insert my pendrive sandisk in Mac. I openned Disk Utility and clicked on repair button. This worked and now my windows 7 recognized it. Cheers
It doesnt work to me. I downloaded it, I try it as administrator, but says to me that the currently inserted U3 drive is not SanDisk, but in real it is a Sandisk. (I cant format this usb, becouse my system felt while it was formating last time, so it stopped in the middle probably)I dont know what else to do..??It is a SanDisk Cruzer Blade 4 GB Pen Drive
1. Remove all USB drivers one by one in Device manager (including drivers for USB drive, mouse, etc)2. Restart3. New drivers will install4. Restart & plug your USB drive5. Profit
Hi there , I have experienced the same problems with my Sandisk Ultra Dual usb drive as you have described. I have tried out all the options possible and finally stumbled upon your page. I could not find the installer file for the usb I have on the sandisk support site and was wondering where can I find the same. Also there are files which I want to recover before I go ahead and try these steps. Is there any way I can change the file system from UNKNOWN to either Fat 32 or NTFS to at least try and recover my data before going in for the format? Thanks.
You can wipe your drive free of u3- just go to sandisk. Mine had it and I got rid of it. just bewarned, it leaves about 100Mb of stuff on your drive that you don't need.(The folder is hidden, so you can delete it.)There are 10 types of people in the world.
A new sandisk thumb drive with U3 simply will not work on my XP Dell. As soon as the drive is inserted in any USB 2.0 port, the computer locks up and nothing can be done with it. I get a message on the monitor "error 1010." But I can't find out what this means despite two days of trying and contact with Sandisk tech support. The drive with U3 works just fine on other, similar computers. I finally uninstalled the U3 software from the thumbdrive and then it works fine on my computer. What is it about the U3 software or my computer that causes this problem?Just sign me perplexed.
