    sandisk cruzer 32G

    My testing of Windows 10 shows that the Sandisk Cruzer has no driver
    in Windows 10 for it.
    I have no idea how to send feedback to Microsoft so this can be added.

    It should not need a special driver. Mine work fine but I don't use any software that might come with a flash drive.

    I have 3 SanDisk Cruzers, all 16GB and they work fine with 10. They show up as

    SanDisk Cruzer USB Device under Disk Drives in Device Manager.

    It's possible that the sandisk is failing but I am able to use it in Windows 7.
    Windows 10 says that there is an error with it.
    Sandisk not that old and not used very much.
    Thanks for responding.

    I had a Lexar USB 3 thumb drive that would not work on my desktop PC. I forget what the error message said. The same drive worked fine in my laptop though, on USB 3 and USB 2 ports. Both PC's were running 8.1 Pro 64 bit. I had just bought it so I took it back. No such issues with any of the Kingston or Sandisk thumb drives that I own though.

    If I click properties for the Sandisk it shows 16,384 bytes being used by
    a program called "ReadyBootDriver". If I format the Sandisk it still appears
    on the drive. If I do a search on the drive another program shows up
    "readyboostperf counters". This search was done on Windows 7 pro 64-bit.
    I am also going to try the same thing on Windows 10 when I get the chance.....

    I would say the ReadyBootDriver was involved in the situation with Windows 10, but I am not familiar with it. Maybe there is some update for that utility, but I run mine without any such software.

    If you decide you want to clean the drive, Diskpart in an Administrative Command Prompt will do that. You could format if as Fat32 or NTFS depending on how you want to use the drive.

    The link below shows model compatibility with Windows 8.1, so you might check it. I would not expect to see the same charts for Windows 10 for some time.

    I did not put "readybootdriver " on my puter. I want nothing to do with it.
    In Windows 10 it just gobbled up 4G of the Sandisk. I have been able to clean the drive
    with Format. The default for the driver is Fat32. When I do a search in Windows 10
    it can find no traces of it. I can't (don't know how) to point the search in Windows 10
    to the Sandisk. Nothing is ever easy
