I have a Mac mini and a 1gb sandisk cruzer micro, and when I insert it into my usb hub, it shows up in the finder as a blank cd. It was also loaded with 900mb of photos taken in Italy, but these photos do not show up. The drive works as it should in a wintel machine. Pictures show up as well.
Am I missing something here?
**Resolved** You must use a utility from the Sandisk website, which is a U3 system removal .exe I had to download it and install it on my work pc, and plug in the the Cruzer and run the U3 system removal program. For those unfamiliar with U3 System, it basically lets you run programs off the Cruzer thumbdrive, so you can go from PC to PC with the drive and run your applications without installing them on multiple computers.
