U3 basically enables the user to run programs that have U3 capability (e.g. firefox) straight from your Sandisk cruzer, without having to install it on your computer.

Step 1: Materials

Things you will need:


1. A Sandisk cruzer micro (I'm not sure how to do it on any other device as this is the only one i have)

2. A. Computer

3. Access to the internet.

There are better options than U3 to do this. http://www.portableapps.com and http://www.liberkey.com are two that I have used. I like liberkey's menu and variety of software better, but there are some controversies with how it handles open source licensing, so if you're a purist, stick with portable apps.

ARG! I hate U3, first thing I did with my sandisk was to reformat to get rid of it. As mrmath said before: portable apps is a much neater option (does not install device drivers).
If U3 were open, and/or had free apps to include, I'd love it. I love the idea of getting around the lack of an autorun on USB drives. But, U3 is closed, and there are not a lot of free apps for it. So, I stick with other options.
Well there are some good free apps like firefox, skype and openoffice.
Liberkey and Portableapps have all of those and more. But, to each their own, right? If you like it, keep using it. I have two drives with U3 on them, and never use it.
