According to Amazon.com, the "SanDisk Cruzer Titanium 4 GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive" is a U3 smart drive
, complete with the following U3 programs: * CruzerSync synchronization tool * SignupShield password manager * SKYPE "Make video calls from PC to PC" * AVAST virus scan.
U3 Flash drives are typically mounted as a CDROM drive in my experience. It's their technology. It won't autostart on Win 7 due to security updates to inactiviate the autorun.inf function of drives. You may have to go into "My Computer" and double click on the drive. I haven't used U3 since Windows XP when autorun worked. You would plug the U3 drive in and it would put an icon in the task bar by the clock. Right click the icon and a menu would appear.
If you don't care about the included software and would rather revert the Flash drive back to a simple USB storage device, then follow the U3 smart drive link above. Arrow down to "Removal
" and follow the links to download the Sandisk U3 Removal Tool. (Note: a windows "format" of the device will not remove all of these properties; you have to use the removal tool)
