Question about PNY 4GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive - Grey/Black

1 Answer

Connection issues. I plug in this drive in any computer and it works perfectly. It's a 4g pny attache drive. I try to use it on these old biostar computers at school and it randomly disconnects after a little bit, usually during a data transfer such as writing or stuff like that, copying files on or off of it. It is extremely annoying because I've lost days of work to this piece of ****, and I severely need to fix it, I've tried formatting it, and even downloading programs to "truly write it to zeros" basically low level format it, to no avail. I've formatted it using windows built in shell one, and the command prompt as well as chkdsk and doing the built in one too. Nothing works. It has a little light that flashes when data is transfered and when I try a disk check on the biostar it flashes as if it's active then all of a sudden at around 28 to 32% it just quits, and afterwards it just says you can't open the drive for direct access, same thing happens if I'm moving or writing files on the drive, so I have to remove and reconnect it to get it to work, however it is only a temporary fix. They are running on windows xp and so is this computer both use the same flash drive driver from windows. I have no problems on any other computers at school nor on my home computers.I'd like to get this fixed, thanks in advance for any help. And if you suggest replacing it, I would if I could spare some money but that really isn't an option. sidenote: I couldn't figure how to get rid of the other one but it randomly stuck it in that category so I just opened a new one under the correct category.

Rescue data on optima attache 4G thumb drive?


Leave the thumbdrive plugged in to the computer and reboot.

Right click on my computer, click Manage, click on disk management, locate your thumb drive, right click and choose assign (or change) a drive letter. If it already has a drive letter, give it a different one as it’s already in use

Is this thumb drive USB specific? Some of the newer ones require a 2.0 USB port. It's possible you're plugging it into a 1.0 port.

open my computer and hit the f5 key on your keyboard for a refresh.. might not have posted.


try one or more of these

PNY Optima Attache 4g Flash Drive


Change the drive letter of the pny drive to another letter, different than that of your accounting package. Right click "My Computer" click "Manage" select "Disk Managment" right click the drive, select "Change drive letter and Path" and then change the drive letter to something not used on that computer.

PNY Optima Attache 4G


I had all the same problems and figured it out. Right click on my computer and go to manage, then select the disk management option. Right click on the drive and select partition. Then tell it to partition the full size of the drive and make sure you dont let it use the fat or fat32 options. It will then ask you to format when you partition it, use then quick format and it formats. Works good now. I did this on xp pro so I dont know if vista will be the same.
