8gb flash drive holds less than 2gb

Try reformatting the flash drive. Copy all your important files somewhere, since reformatting the device would erase all saved data. Go to "My Computer", right click on the usb device, click "Format...", click "Start" on the window that pops-up, click "ok" and wait for the formatting to finish. This should erase all data on the device, including hidden files that might be taking the space up.

Windows says not enough space on pny 8 gig flash drive

Try formatting the drive as NTFS instead of FAT32 (assuming you are using it only on Windows computers). FAT32 doesn't support files over 4GB.
