When I plug in brand new sandisk cruzer blade it takes ages to show in my computer, then when I try to open it, it hangs until I get the message - computer(not responding), it works perfectly well in my old computer running windows xp.
If there is nothing important on it try the right click format option (I assume this is available in Win8). Sometimes I've found that with later operating systems flash drives seem to want to be formatted there.
Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
This gets more boggling by the minute. I formatted the sandisk on my old xp and when I plugged it into the new computer it appeared to read it and showed it correctly as empty. I then copied some photos from my old computer and tried it again in my new one and it hangs for ages and then shows as empty! I have an old sandisk which is also doing the same thing, but when I reformatted it and put documents only on it (no photos) my new computer read it, I then moved photos direct from my camera via my new pc to the sandisk and when I tried to open it it again failed! I have an old 2gb vodaphone stick which has a mix of photos and documents on it and my new pc reads it ok???????
Derek, Sandisk have solved the problem!!!!! Its because I have the Samsung Kies program on the computer! Now that I`ve disabled it both sandisks work! I am sure lots of people will be puzzled by this because it certainly isn`t something I`d have thought of. Many thanks for your help. Frank
