Re-format it from Windows.
Go to my computer.
You will see all disks including removable flash drive.
Click right button on flash drive icon.
A menu will drop down chose format option.
Do not do fast format , chose a complete format.
If you cannot solve the problem in this way then the flash drive is either .
Some Chinese export companies are selling corrupt or counterfeit flash drives of 4, and 8 Gigs, they lose FAT integrity after a while, and when re-formated won't work properly or will work only for a while.
In this case return item to retailer.

Tellilng me that I don't have enough storage space, even though I deleted all of my memory


Hi Sarah
Have you actually emptied the trash while the thumb drive is plugged in? Putting stuff in the trash doesn't clear anything until the trash is emptied and the drive must be plugged in for it to work.

there is an overhead for the space on a drive, the system needs a File Allocation Table and other administrative information, so the total 4 GB is usually not 100% available. It would not work properly without this "administrative" space.

Hi, i put in my sandisk usb, computer sees it but wont let me store anything on it??


Your SanDisk Cruzer appears on your computer as two drives
  1. A CD-ROM ( with the icon of a Cd-Rom) that contains the U3Smart Operating system, but does not have any space for storage.
  2. A mass storage device.
The two devices are labeled sequentially if CD-ROM is E, the mass-storage drive is F, but that is not guaranteed.

You should drop files on the mass-storage device, not the CD-ROM.

My kisgston usb is 4gb but now its capacity is 400mb why ?


All storage manufacturers do the same. 80 Gb HDD is not 80 X 1024 MB. It is 80 X 1000 MB. Is yours showing 400 MB or 4000 MB? If 4000MB then all is well as per manufacturer's specifications. If 400 MB then there is something wrong. Return it.

Why can't I put a 7gb video on my 16gb Cruzer


I think I know what your problem may be. Check to see how the drive is formatted. Drives formatted with FAT32 cannot transfer files 4GB or larger. Try reformatting the drive to NTFS.

1. Open My Computer
2. Right click on the drive
3. Select Format
4. Under “File System” change it from FAT32 to NTFS
5. Check quick format
6. Click start

I have not tried this yet but if that does not work try this:

1. Right click on My Computer and select Manage
2. Click on Storage
3. Click on Disk Management
4. In the right pane right click on the drive letter assigned to the San Cruz
5. Select format and choose NTFS

I hope this helps. Good luck!
