There is a very simple fix to this problem... I have windows 7 ultimate and my Kingston Cruzer 4gb would not work. I tried everything for about a month. Here is the fix....

In Vista/7 go to start menu type 'Computer Managment'.

Then go to the computers Device Manager then "USB controllers".

You should have a 'U3 USB' show up.

right click and click uninstall

then click the 'Action' then 'Scan for hardware changes'

it should install the driver for your usb..... Worked for me
Thank you so much BTARWOOD23 - I just tried what you said and it works. I appreciate your help.
This works for XP as well. Only difference is device name is shown as "USB Composite Device".
You are a god.
