I'm still in a pickle over USB flash drives.

Cannot see any flash drives.

Device Manager >
Code 28: The drivers for this device are not installed

But clicking on "update driver" > win7 cannot find any drivers online. Nor can I find any by manually googling.


It's the current Sandisk extreme 64gb 3.0 > Can someone plz link me the driver to download. I'm stuck.
