Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have purchased 2 flash drives, one 32G and one 16G the only problem is that neither appears to be able to hold the amount of data that it says. The 32G holds about 10G and the 16G holds about 6G. I am loading movies onto the drives. Can they both be faulty or is this normal??? The data seems to be on the drives until I take them out of the computer and replace them again then some of the folders read as empty. Any suggestions. Thanks, Noel

Which is smaller, gigabytes or megabytes

megabits is smaller
if you want to back up 2.83 gb get a usb flash drive
get a 5gb unit
usb sticks (flash drive) rated at 5 gb will hold 4.5 gb of data as the rating is the total capacity but all flash drives require a small amount of space to work so the actual amount of data capacity is always less than the stated size on the flash drive
the capacity rating is-- smallest to largest --bytes, mega bytes , gigabytes, and terabytes

My apple ipod 32G does not turn on.


Seems like your iPod has frozen.

Try a soft reset first:
1. Press and hold theSleep/Wake button on the top of the unit until a red slider appears
2. Drag the slider.
3. Press and hold theSleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
If a soft reset doesn't work, try a hard reset:
Press and hold both the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button for about ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
