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.

Step 2: Step 1

First of all insert your USB flash drive into an available USB port, then go to the website: http://www.mydigitallife.info/2007/05/24/reinstall-or-restore-u3-launchpad-software-into-usb-flash-smart-drive/ and click the link that says: SanDisk: U3 LaunchPad Installer (LPInstaller.exe).

Step 3:

A dialog box should pop up, click the button that says run.

Step 4: Step 3

Just click next to the next few dialog boxes and wait.

Step 5: Step 4

Click on the option that says Run U3 launch pad to setup you own personal setting for the U3 launch pad.

Step 6:

To download applications go to http://u3.sandisk.com/download/Download.asp

    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.

    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.
