This is because of the why bits and bytes are stored. 1 gigabyte is 1,073,741,824 bytes in reality. so 1.88Gb 2,018,634,629 bytes whcih for advertising purposes is 2 gigabytes. So you will generally always see this disparity because computers read bytes where 1 kb = 1024 bytes, and advertisers use 1kb = 1000 bytes. But don't worry you really did get 2 billion bytes it's just a little marketing sleight of hand :)

I am not able to open files in 16 GB transcend pen drive . it gives messege windows cannot open the file . OS is windows xp


Is the Icon of your Pen-Drive showing just exact, I mean just like a removable media icon? If it is not, if it is a icon of a Folder, then it might be infected by viruses. Take care of this situation and be sure to scan your Removable Pen-Drive with a good quality anti-virus to remove all the traces of the viruses. And I am presuming this may be the only cause where your OS can not open your Pen-Drive. If this is the case, the files in the Pen-Drive may be corrupted, and if the files are not healed for long, this may lead to corruption of your Pen-Drive!

> I have bought

The 35GB pen-drive device comes with a "warranty", so "exercise" that warranty to get it replaced, at minimal cost to you. Take it back to where you bought it, to exercise the warranty.

How can i remove write protect from my 4 GB transcend pen drive


Hi Virus or Trojans can run some process that keeps running in background. This not only harms the computer, but also prevents the pen drive from formatting as it shows that the drive is in use. Remove and re-insert the pen drive, don't double click on drive and cancel auto run operations if it starts automatically. Run a virus scan on pen drive, this will help fix the issue. Now format the pen drive.
