Summary: SanDisk has a systemic problem with this product; The drive constantly goes into "Write Protect" mode. There solution is to keep sending you a new drive, but they have done nothing to fix the problem. This product is not ready for prime time. Just gave up and moved on, total waste of money.
Summary: Complete rubbish. After using it at less than half capacity for a year, it just craps out and doesn't power up anymore. I thought it was just the orange light that went out but it doesn't show up in "My Computer". Waste of time and now I've lost everything I haven't backed up..
Summary: Mine was DOA, and well actually it died in the first 10 minutes. Reboot, multiple reformats, nothing helped with the write errors. Returned SanDisk qc failed on this unit. Oh, and the SanDisk branding is not removable. For those that are wondering.
