How do i use my pny 8gb flash drive


You plug it in to a USB port on your PC. It may need to be partitioned and formatted. For example, if it is formatted for a Mac, if will need to be repatirioned to work on a PC. It all depends on what kind of device you are trying to plug it in to.

Windows doesn't see the flash drive anymore


Incompatible formats. I belive MAC has a FAT reader for Windows formatted drives, but not the other way around.

When you plug it in does the mac laptop even register that it has been connected? I'm also assuming the usb drive works on your other computer?

My 8GB SanDisk Cruzer when plugged in lights up, but it's not detected, both on Windows and on Mac, I don't know if it's still fixable... :(


Try reformatting your thumb drive. Here's how to do it on a Mac:

**THIS WILL DELETE ALL THE DATA ON THE DRIVE**

1. Open Finder
2. Applications 3. On the left column, you should see your thumb drive. Click on it.
4. Click on the "Erase" tab near the top
5. For "Format:" select "FAT32"
6. Click on the "Erase..." button

Plug it into your computer and format it, that should give you all your space back. If you need help with this please just let me know.

I emptied the cruzer 8Gb by deleting the files.


Reformat the drive. Plug it into the Windows computer, and right click on it in the My Computer folder. Select properties, and you can reformat from there.

I just bought a Sandisk Cruzer Micro, 8GB. My problem is that I'm rather computer illiterate. Can you tell me how to use this thing? Where to plug it in , etc. What do I do after its plugged in. I have...


1. Find a USB port on your computer usually it has a 3 pronged logo on it
2. plug it in, it will only fit in one way its a rectangle.
3. your computer if running on an operating system made after windows 98 will auto detect these jump or thumb drives.
4. you can browse to this new memory using my computer on a PC or by using finder on a MAC.
to copy files the easiest way i know to do so on both PCs and MACs is to select the files off of the source and drag and drop (or copy and paste them) to your new 8GB drive.
5. once you can see the files on the USB drive open them so you know the file is there and not a short cut.

You should strongly consider buying a second back up like an external had drive. you should have 2 back-ups of critical files.

-good luck-
