My 16GB USB flash drive is completely empty, but its properties indicate that 14.6GB of space are in use and only 319MB are available. It has worked appropriately for a long time until now. I am now unable...

I think it could be due to virus activity. Some virus make the contents of the drive hidden, thats why user can't see the files and the space available for use is less than the capacity.
It is suggested that go to FOLDER OPTIONS - and seclect SHOW HIDDEN FILES. It may show the hidden files. Otherwise, if you dont have any vital data on the drive, just format it. Hope this would fix the issue and you would be able to enjoy the full capacity of the disk

Let me know if any further clarification is required. Hope this helps! Dont forget to rate the solution!!

I have a Dell Dimension C521 computer with a LG DVD drive. Trying to send a file to this drive using either a new writable cd or a cd-rw and I get a message that the cd is full and the file cannot be...

Try to check your cd-rw or cd-r that are new and did not use anymore or maybe it was damage. And maybe the files that you copied are exceed the capacity of the cd-r or cd-rw so that they could not write the files. If your using the Nero Burning ROM you just see the capacity of your cd-r or cd-rw before you going to write it to the cd. Just make sure that the files you want to copy are not exceed the capacity of the cd.
