problem with sandisk cruser

    When I insert my sandisk cruser (4 GB) - USB stick, ANYDVD shows that it is scanning the disk, and the whole system freezes until I remove the disk.

    This is definitely a bug.

    Thanks in advance

    ANYDVD should have options that let you close this scaning.

    AnyDVD still prevents the U3 launchpad from executing and locks the Windows Explorer.

    It's not that hard to just close AnyDVD before I insert the drive but it can get annoying if I forget to.

    No Disc is present in Drive I:!

    Well, that isn't a Cruzer. I'll look into it.

    [FONT=&quot]I have a SanDisk Cruzer and AnyDVD ignores it. That’s a good thing.[/FONT]

    As a matter of fact, it does:

    Disable the offending stick there.

    Hope this helps!

    There is another solution to this. Simply uninstall U3 software. A simple reformat will NOT work. There is a method by going to this site:


    I personally can not stand U3 software. And yes, this method will wipe your drive clean:D

    Very good advice! U3 software is no more than a pain in the rear and it can cause many problems.

    Please, that isn't really an option for people that want and use their U3 drives. I use U3 everyday and have no problems with it. It works just fine and does what it's supposed to do if you know what you're doing.

    If the solution was that simple i wouldn't be posting here :disagree:. In fact even with AnyDVD on for the drive it still says that it is disabled:

    AnyDVD is disabled for Drive I:!
    Is there really that much of a difference between a Verbatim U3 and a Sandisk Cruzer U3?

    Well, disabled (for AnyDVD) is good! AnyDVD will leave it alone.

    Thats the problem, it says that it's disabled, but it still prevents the launchpad from executing and the Windows Explorer also freezes and only comes unstuck after i eject the drive. None of this happens with AnyDVD closed. :confused:
