When plugged in the SanDisk Cruzer USB Drive Properties shows the following
drivers being used. 

Driver Provider:	Microsoft
Driver Date: 	6/21/2006
Driver Version:	6.1.7600.16385
Digital Signer:	Microsoft Windows

Driver File Details


I'm pretty sure these are Standard Windows drivers. I did uninstall them and
had the U3 Drive reinstall and had the same issue. And just for a hoot I
disabled auto run and the error still showed up when I executed the
LauncherU3.exe file from the main U3 Software drive.

Just to be clear, I love the ZoomFloppy! And If I were to have to get rid of
one or the other the U3 drive would be gone. But, I need both and its really
inconvenient to be continually unplugging and plugging. I guess I could use
a different Launcher applications since most of my apps are portable and not
U3 apps (shortcut Creator 4 U3 Rocks). But I'd rather not.
