My son put together a 4gb pny usb for me on my vacation put a bunch of games i just love playing all i get is pictures but not the videos we took at the zoo and only pics and parts of the games playing...


I can only guess that the 4Gb PNY USB is full and that ran out of space and that it couls not store all the photos, videos and games. 4Gb is not a very large USB memory stick to store all this data.
Photos require a lot of storage space depending upon the number of photos and the size of the photos. Video movies require even more storage space and this depends upon the video resolution and the length of the movie.
