First, I can't get vista to recognize my sandisk titanium cruiser flash usb.
It tells me windows can't enable it.

Second, I have a router on my pc with XP but can't get my laptop with Vista
to connect to the internet. It says I'm connected to the router but no
internet connection. Here is what info I got:

Generally there isn't much that you can do if Vista doesn't recognise your
USB Flash except buy one that it does recognise. One of the most common
problems with network connections in Vista is that there are different
default network names. Make sure they are the same in Vista as you have set
up on your XP.

Debbie:
On the usb flash drive, does it work on the Windows XP PC? If so, you may
not have adequate permission on the Vista laptop to enable it. The
information from your network seems like you have no network cable attached
to the router. Either the cable is bad, the ethernet adapter is disabled or
broken, or you are trying to use a wireless connection that has not been
properly configured. The only adapter shown in your post is the wireless
connection, and the address shown 169.254.243.160 is not a valid IP address
for internet access. The address is a private address provided internally
by the computer when it can't find a DHCP server to provide an address. If
you have a wireless router, then you must set it to provide an address by
enabling DHCP.

I had the same problem. Solved it by rebooting. I think the reboot
automatically installed the drivers.

Greg,
Yes the usb flash drive does work with my XP PC. How would I enable the
permission? When I plug it in the laptop, and go to computer it does even
show up with the other drives.

The router is connected to the XP PC, that pc doesn't have a wireless
adapter, just the laptop does. I have the router connected to the pc the
way it says, I have internet connection, obviously or I wouldn't be here.
The lights for wireless and and internet are lit. This is the info from the
XP PC

Debbie Graham,

My Sandisk MicroCruiser works just fine with Vista. I use it only for
ReadyBoost. Your system is not going to recognize it until you have installed
the proper drivers for it.

Have a nice day.

Until CB answers you, your best bet is to make sure you have plugged it into
a USB port that connects directly to the MOBO as many times connecting thru
a hub will result in failure.

Debbie,

There are several ways to check for drivers. Look in Device Manager
under the heading "Disk drives" to see if it located there, right click on
it, choose Properties and update the driver. You may find a yellow
exclamation mark next to it, indicating a problem.

Go to Sankisk's website and look for driver downloads for your specific
product. This would be the best place to get them.

If you find nothing there, check for updates in Windows Updates and
Microsoft Updates while your Sankisk is plugged into the computer.

What brand is your computer? If it is a Dell you can run the Dell
Support application and click on the "Drivers and Downloads" link. The
Drivers and Downloads webpage will already have your computer's model and
information listed and will display a list of available downloads in every
category.

Also, if your computer is a Dell, and is still under warranty, you can
call them and they will find the driver and get it installed for you.

I apologize for being late but I work extremely long hours. Have a nice
day.

C.B.
