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

1 Answer

I have a 4G PNY flash drive that has worked fine. I have been using it to move data from PC to new Mac. However, there was some problem on the Mac and it reformated it. So then when I put it into the PC, it also reformated it. And now, the drive thinks it only has 2MG of storage. It is completely empty, but available space is only 2MG. What happened and how do I fix it. I need for this drive to recognize all of its space because it is my data-moving workhorse.

I bought a deer cam (trail camera) at Walmart and a PNY card with PNY Multi-Slot USB & Flash Card Reader P-UBSDRDR21K-RF. I can't make them all work for me. PNY card reader has no instructions on the package neither on their website and their support is a joke. When I plug in this multi-slot card reader into my PC (I tried two different PCs) something isn't right. I get no results, just empty folders. The card is new and has data on it. Both products come from PNY, both were purchased at Walmart and both are going back to Walmart for a full refund and I will never buy a PNY product ever again.

Check write protection on side of card. Plus, was the card formatted on a MAC or Linux? Window and most devices use FAT or FAT32 formats.

I have a 4GB PNY micro SD card for my cell phone. I cannot get my pc to read the card to download pictures stored on it. I am using the adapter. What am I doing wrong?


Your pc may not be able to read the 4G. Older readers are limited to the 2G sticks. The 4G is SDHD (High density) and you have to get a newer reader/usb reader.
You can test this by taking it to walmart and see if it will work in their printer.
