Description

Ready to take the next step in web site development? A full 14% of the North Carolina e-Commerce curriculum is devoted to including JavaScript, Cascading Stylesheets, Multimedia, and Java Applets in web sites. Furthermore, students love adding pop and sizzle to their web sites, so why be afraid to add them? This workshop will gently lead teachers into an understanding of JavaScript, what it is, how to work with it, and how to include it both effectively and safely in a web site.

Disabling SanDisk’s Annoying U2 System Tray

Want to make your SanDisk U2 flash drive work like every other kind of flash drive? It’s actually pretty simple. A SanDisk flash drive connects to your computer as two separate drives. By denying the system drive access to your computer, the other drive where your data is stored can connect normally. Bingo! No more annoying U2 system tray.

I welcome comments on the following instructions. In particular, I would like to know if they work on Windows Vista and on legacy U2 flash drives. If anything is unclear, let me know.

Note: You will have to perform these steps on each computer that you use your flash drive with.

On Windows XP:

  1. Insert your SanDisk U2 flash drive and wait for it to attach to the system and wait for the U2 System Tray to load.
  2. Open My Computer and open the new Removable Disk drive. Delete the LaunchU2 file. Close My Computer.
  3. Now, right-Click on My Computer and choose Manage. This opens the Computer Management window.
  4. Choose Disk Management under Storage.
  5. In the pane to the right, you should see a list of connected disk drives. In this list, you should find two new drives for your SanDisk – one will say U2 System and the other will be your flash drive proper.
  6. Right-Click on the U2 System drive and choose Change Drive Letter and Paths…
  7. Click Remove and Yes when you are asked if you are sure.
  8. Now, exit the U2 System and eject your flash drive. When you reinsert it you should be U2 free.
