Not As Good As The Older SDCZ6 Series
on October 26, 2011
Today I just recieved 2 SanDisk Cruzer USB Flash Drives, one with 4GB and the other with 8GB of space(SDCZ36 series).I was very dissappointed, because now after you put your favorite family pictures on one of them with the security code intact, you can only view one picture at a time after a lengthy and cumbersome procedure, with no editing or slideshow possibilities as was previously available on the SDCZ6 series.The instructions read as follows: "Your file will be opened as read only (one picture at a time)to edit, move file outside of vault, open, make changes, save, then drag the updated file back into the vault" Thats right.You have to reproduce them back onto your computer in order to see or edit any pictures that you put on these newer SDCZ36 SanDisk Flash Drives.
The older SanDisk Cruzer Flash Drives (SDCZ6 series)allowed you to view your pictures, edit pictures, or even have a slide show, while your security code is intact, without the requirement that they must once again be returned to your computer before any editing or multiple viewing can take place. This new version (SDCZ36 series) is a real dissappointment if you have lots of family photos that you just want to browse through, or edit, after they have been transferred to the Flash Drive, and it took me all day just to download a few pictures to the flash drive itself while the security code is intact.
The new SDCZ36 SanDisk Flash Drives can easily be recognized by their bright red, blue, or green slide bar.The older SDCZ6 series have a grey slide bar and are still available here on amazon.com
