First - sometimes the software glitches and it forgets what it was playing with an error message so I have to select a song again to play. That's probably more a software issue than a problem with this device.
Second - it burns up the iPhone's battery power incredibly fast. I can't listen to music all day anymore, because the battery drains so much faster with the music on the external drive instead of on the phone.
I would like this device much better if it had a lightning power port so that I could have the power cord plugged into the device and the device plugged into the phone.
This flash drive contains *both* a standard USB male plug and a male Lightning connector. The password protection feature (SanDisk SecureAccess) is in the form of a program pre-loaded onto the drive, along with some random media samples. All told about 85MB of content is on the drive already when you open it.
A note for you guys concerned about privacy: to use SecureAccess you'll have to agree to a EULA that gives SanDisk and "its authorized third parties" permission to "collect and use technical and other information, including frequency and use of this Software, memory usage and file type extensions (however this Software will not view or transmit the content of such files)."
Although the device's product page says it comes with a two-year warranty, this warranty does ***not*** apply to SecureAccess or any content you'll put in it.
Finally, the version of SecureAccess pre-loaded onto the drive is not the "full version." The full version is provided by a third party and costs between $24.99 and $39.99. (note: I had originally tried to upload this review a screenshot showing a comparison but Amazon rejected it)
Now that that is out of the way, on to the actual review. The first thing you'll notice about this drive is that, while it's not thick, it's significantly wider than most other USB sticks. This can present an issue if you're wanting to plug it into a USB port that has another port directly to the right or left of it because it will obstruct that port as well.
The cap that covers the USB plug is removable and would be something you can easily lose.Read more ›
I'm attaching the error message that displays; image taken 11 October, 2015.
There is a mandatory App in the Apple Store. Why can't the product update itself via its own App?
I bought this to solve the problem of iPhone image storage — and it has created more problems. My iPhones and iPads are well into the iOS 9s. I have no PC. This is a Lightning Connector product. So I am absolutely stuck.
Shame on SanDisk for such indifference to a large customer base.
My name is Allen from SanDisk support. I truly apologize for your experience. We have released iXpand FW version 4.4.6 which resolves current issues.. Please upgrade your iXpand drive to FW 4.4.6. If you do not have access to PC or Mac, you can do it using a compatible iOS device. Update the iXpand app version 1.2.1 released 10/02/15. Once the iXpand app has been updated to version 1.2.1 connect the iXpand drive and open the app. Your iXpand drive will be updated to FW version 4.4.6. If issue persists, please contact SanDisk support at 1-866-SANDISK or submit a support request at www.sandisk.com/support.
My name is Allen from SanDisk support. I am sorry to hear that your iXpand drive failed after 2 weeks. We definitely do not want our customers to face any inconvenience using our products and strive to manufacture products with well built hardware and software configuration.

The manufacturer warranty on brand new products extends beyond the Amazon.com 30 day return period. We will assist you towards a resolution including a possible warranty replacement.
What I love about this flash drive is it frees you from iTunes! Copy photos or videos to this drive using any computer to access from your iPhone or iPad later. There were so many instances that I had to copy pictures to another flash drive, took it home and transfer to my iPad via iTunes. Yes, you have to add another app to your iPhone or iPad but it's well worth it.
One thing should be noted is you can only transfer photos and videos from the Photo folder, i.e those that captured with your iPhone or iPad's camera. I could not yet find a way to copy a video from the Movie folder.
The iXpand drive came precharged so you can use right away. It can be charged by plugging in a USB port of any computer. Use it like any other flash drive to copy files, and you can access them through the iXPand app, including movies, photos and music. Also remember that the iXpand drive is only a backup device, you cannot copy files from the iXpand to your iPad. Copy to the iXpand is easy and fast; just select the file and specify where you want them copy to.
One thing Sandisk could improve on this drive is include a USB extension cable. The drive is pretty wide, more than 1", so may not fit in some tight laptop spot or make the next USB ports useless until you remove the drive. A good manual on the iXpand Sync software would also be nice, I can figure out how after playing with it a bit, but I can certainly imagine some users might have trouble with it.Read more ›
