SOURCE: Unable to access files on the flash drive

SDHC cards are not backward compatible with normal SD cards..therefore older devices will not recognise them...your built in card reader is probably not sdhc...try downloading directly from camera or use a sdhc usb card reader

What you need to do if you using windows XP is you need the mass storage driver for this to reconised the drive. Link is below
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/318812

Now if you using say windows vista,windows 7 and you get a error message saying that the usb has failed or the thumb drive is not recognizable then chances are the thumb drive is bricked, meaning will not accept in coming and outgoing communications. This hap pends when your using XP and you just unplug the drive without using the safely remove device button on the task bar.

While Bob's information refers to anything usb and your product is flash memory and not just anything meaning its not powered by any cords nor does it have any cords I thought i might add addition helps.

The driver, it is not on my computer


USB Flash Drivers are an automatic install and so should work out of the box. If they aren't then can you try another flash drive? Can you also try and use another known working device in that same USB port? Is it the USB port that is damaged? Does the PNY work in another computer?

First, please disconnect all USB devices and then perform the following steps:


Click "Start" button, type "devmgmt.msc" (without quotation marks) in the "Search" bar and press "Enter". Click "Continue" if necessary.



In Device Manager, double click to expand "Universal Serial Bus controllers", right click on the Host Controller, click "Uninstall" and click "OK".



Repeat the step 2 to uninstall all items under "Universal Serial Bus controllers".



Then, restart your computer and Windows 7 will reinstall all USB controllers automatically.


for xp or earlier


click start right click on computer select properties device manager scroll down universal serial bus controllers you could see a yellow question / exclamation mark? ! or a red X


you will need to update/reinstall drivers

right click to reinstall drivers


if you can see your usb drive but its not working

ports (com&lpt) right click update driver if this fails to fix the problem


check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red white green black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems to a computer and its parts


if you need more help with this or if i have missed the problem post a reply


hope it helps

I bought one pny pen drive of 2 GB after 4-5 mouths it gout courapted an when I try to explore/open and fromet a mesage is displyed by windows thati please insert disk drive in H:


Sometimes when a flash memory stick fails because it was not removed from the USB port properly. If the device is removed by just pulling it out of the USB port, it can cause the flash device to fail, you must click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon on the Task Bar and select the device you wish to remove and only do so when instructed to do so.

When the flash memory device appears to malfunction it maybe possible to restore it by reformatting it. Insert the flash drive into the USB port then Click on Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Disk Management.
Then right click on Disk 1 removable drive and click Format. After the flash drive has been formatted it will indicate that it is Healthy.

You need to format the external drive. Format the drive as primary drive and in FAT32. (FAT32 will allow data to be exchanged between MACs and PCs).
Insert the external hard drive into the USB port then Click on Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Disk Management.
Then right click on Disk 1 removable drive and click Format. After the flash drive has been formatted it will indicate that it is Health

Have you installed a scanner/another external USB drive since first trying your Flash drive? If so, try unplugging that and re-insert your Flash drive. I had this problem and a friend suggested this and it worked!

I have a pny 4gb usb 2.0 flash drive black.instructions needed.


Most USB drives are "plug n play" meaning you just plug it in to a USB 2 port and your operating system will recognize it as a drive. If you're using Windows ME/XP/Vista, just plug it into a USB 2 port and once its recognized you'll be able to send files and folders directly to it by right clicking the file or folder and moving your mouse over SEND TO and selecting the drive from the list.
