My usb shows only 1.96 mb while its orignal space is 4 gb


remember that a memory device needs space in which to operate
so a 4gb stick will have less than the 4gb storage
It is very possible that there is some memory being used that results in the 1.96 remaining
one possible solution is to read the stick and see if there is any files or folders than are required and then reformat it to get back to full memory

MEMORY CARD SHOWING FULL BUT WHEN CAMERA CONNECTED TO DOWNLOAD TO LAPTOP OR DESKTOP ITS SHOWING FREE SPACE AND USED SPACE BUT NOT SHOWING ANY PICTURES AND VIDEOS,


Save the pictures and videos on the card. Try reformatting the card in the computer, and then again using the camera. The first reformat will ensure the card is empty, and then the camera reformat will ensure that it is recognized by the camera. If the camera reformat will not work, try a new card.
