Default Sandisks Cruzer USB Flash Drive HELP

Hi,

I just recentaly bought a Sandisks Cruzer USB Flash Drive, and I thought it was going to be easy to store stuff on there, like, drag and drop, but I was wrong. I just want to put some files on it!

With it came three programs, CruzerLock 2, CruzerSync, and PocketChache.

Im really confused! I tryed to look up some FAQ or something on google for it but came up with nothing!

So, please help if you can.

Thanks!!

So what did you do?

I have the same brand flash drive and it loaded up when I plugged it into my USB port.

umm, when you plug in a flash drive it will create another drive letter if you were to look in explorer. The new drive letter is usually called "removable disk"

Win98 requires drivers to be installed off a disk or cd, possibly even the win98 cd, not sure though.

Yes, I have a SanDisk Cruzer, I've used it for almost six months and I really like it. It should install inself on 2000, ME, and XP. Espeed is right, you need to install the drivers for 98 and 95 since Plug and Play functionality isn't available then.

Mine came only with CruzerLock. I dont even use it because.... well it just didn't work rofl.

It your having problems with it, try returning it.
