Compatibility issues

  • Summary: These sticks are not detected as removable USB flash drives. They are detected as USB harddrives. Windows shows it as a local disk, not as a removable disk. Windows will only format it with partition table, like a harddrive, as opposed to a regular flash stick. This makes it incompatible with some programs, such as Windows installation media creator (from Microsoft). I can see how for some people it doesn't fit into USB port.

Beware, do not buy this product

Mr Jets, Amazon

  • Summary: Since scandisk used to be a qulaity product, I got fooled into purchasing this at a low price. It is useless and does not work at all. My computer recognizes the disk and installs a drive and that is all. The disk show up with on space and cannot be accessed. Trying to format the disk was useless and a waste of time. I guess that's what you get to 10 bucks, never again.

It doesn't fit into the USB port!

RaveReviewer, Amazon
23 January 2014
  • Summary: We made the HUGE mistake -- based on price -- of purchasing a 4-pack of these from a local "bulk" discount store. As soon as you open the packaging, you spot some issues: Though small, these flash drives are NOT ergonomically designed to comfortably fit in the hand. In addition, there is color (the "facet" side) on only ONE side of these (the other side is plain). (One of the reasons we bought these in the first place was for color-coding.

Move along, nothing to see here

M.H, Amazon

  • Summary: I should have known better than to buy something without reading reviews first. I got fooled into thinking that if it has the name "SanDisk" on it, it's probably a good product, or at least a decent one. So when I saw these flash drives go on sale for $8, I bought one without hesitation. Today I finally found a use for it and took it out of the packaging.

16 GB Sandisk

Shawn Young "At home", Amazon
14 January 2014
  • Summary: Just got this and put 3 gig of stuff on it. got around 6.2mb write speed and 20.ish read speed. The drive has 64mb worth of dada on it but I never use the stuff that come with these. Only thing I would have liked is if has light to let you know when it was being accessed. seems with the nice blue it would have made it pop.

Complete waste of $$

Razzputinn "Razzputinn", Amazon
14 January 2014
  • Summary: It isn't worth 11 cents but will provide $11 of aggravation. After the first week or so experienced difficulty inserting into USB port. Never had this issue with any other device in 10 years. Then the volume started showing up as "zero" after storing less than 1gb. I very much enjoyed crushing it using the workshop vice.

Have you tried flipping it around to make sure it doesn't fit the other way?

luigi, Amazon

  • Summary: I have no idea what's wrong with some of the people giving 1 star reviews. This is the BEST usb drive I've ever had simply because of its shape. It is exactly the size of a usb port. There's not extra fancy cool swaggy plastic decoration on the thing. It can squeeze easily into the 1 free usb port surrounded by other stupidly shaped usb flash drives. I've had one for about a year, keep it on my keychain. It's been dropped scores and scores of times.
