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

1 Answer

I have today purchased 2 X 4GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive. I assumed (not being the most computer minded person in the world) that I would just have to plug it in and then download my photos but I don't know where to plug it - can't find a **** of the right size. Do I need something else to make it work - the man at P-C World didn't tell me I would need anything else even though he must have recognised that I hadn't got a clue what I was taling about. Can you held please.

Your PC should have at least 2 slots in the back that look like the female part that would take the USB "male" part. Connect the two and give your PC a chance to recognize it. Once it does a few things may hapen (1) it will "autorun" and offer you a menu of items to chose from or (2) it will show up as a drive letter when you double click on the "My Computer" icon. You can then copy your photos to the new "drive" letter.

Good luck. Let me know how it turns out.

Why won't Viking Professional Plus embroidery disk manager save to an external floppy:


I'm a bit confused as to just what you have and what you're attempting to do with it.. If you're truly trying to use a "floppy", you have to keep in mind that a floppy will only hold about 1.4 MB. That's equivalent to about one small to average digital picture. That compares with a regular CD disc holding about 700 MB (like about 300 pictures... In today's world of digital storage, floppies are mostly worthless., even though there are a few computers left out there that have a floppy drive... Hopefully, you have a CD drive that will write to disc.. If not, perhaps you can use a flash drive (available at Walmart) to store stuff on.. I hope I've helped a little bit...

Hey gita! Formatting a Flash drive is really simple! Assuming you're using Windows, plug it in your PC and go to My Computer. Right click on the drive and press Format. You can choose either Quick format or normal format(Quick format does it really quickly but it may not yield best results). After that simply press Format and wait for it to finish.
You should have formatted your Flash drive and have your original 4GB of space restored!
Keep in mind that you may have less than 4GB(about 3.8-3.7) This is because formatting writes instructions to the flash drive.
Have fun :)

This is likely due to power consumption, if a hub doesn't have it's own power adapter, then it is drawing bus power from your computer, and will not have enough power to drive larger devices.

I just purchased a 4GB flash drive. It says that it cannot detect an Internet connection, but I am connected to the Internet. Is something wrong with the flash drive?


Assuming you are plugging this into your computer? Flash drives do not connect to the Internet. They are a storage device. Your computer may coincidentally have an Internet connection problem and is displaying the message (in a balloon, bottom right corner of screen) but it is not the flash drive it's referring to. Check your computer's network connections.

I have purchased a new one Kingston 16GB Data traveler 101, but this not working . How can you solve my problem. pksharmadps@yahoo.com


Insert it into the USB port, at rear of your computer or if you are using a laptop try different ports.
Now if your computer/laptop works with other USB devices, then we can assume that USB Support has been enabled in the BIOS/CMOS.
Double click on My Computer while the USB drive is in your computer/laptop. Right click on the USB Drive and select format. If you do have information on your drive it will be lost!!! Do a backup first.
Format your drive using either FAT32 or NTFS, if NTFS is available then use it as it is a better Allocation table format.
If this procedure can't be done, navigate to the control panel and Double Click Administrative Tools.
Now double click Computer Management. Under the storage field, select disk management.
Select your USB FLASH DRIVE, Right Click and select format.

Your drive should be ready for use.
If it is still not detected you could try it in a friends computer/laptop.
Alternatively you can take it back to the company/person that you bought it from as it may fall under warranty/guarantee.

Best Wishes!
Thanking you

How do I set up a built in webcam without a cd drive?


Assuming you have no CD drive at all, the easiest way would be to get to another computer with a CD ROM drive copy the files to a USB flash drive and install the drivers from that.

Hope that helps?

PNY 8GB Flash Drive - PC Will not recognize


Have you installed a scanner/another external USB drive since first trying your Flash drive? If so, try unplugging that and re-insert your Flash drive. I had this problem and a friend suggested this and it worked!

I just purchased an 8GB USB 2.0 flash drive from SanDisk Cruzer. I plugged it in, it recognized it then opened to documents what do i do next?


You use it like a floppy disk, you can copy files to and from your computer to the flash drive,then take the flash drive out and the put into another computer to share, ie. to download and copy files to from other computers such as a friend's computer. The files can be anything, music, photos etc.

USB Drive no longer responding


Ok,

So it wasn't obvious damage then lets do the next step, Right-Click on My Computer, then select Manage, when the MMC opens select Device Manager on the left side, Open USB Devices and look for USB mass Storage controller. If it is not there then it's likely the controller board in the Verbatim shell is dead.

If that is the case, your best bet will be to drop by a local computer store and purchase an empty HDD enclosure to move the drive into.

If it does show up as a USB mass storage controller but not as a drive the problem is more likely in the circuitry of the HDD itself and you may require the assistance of a data recovery pro.

This will walk through the steps to create a bootable USB flash drive for the purpose of installing a Vista or Windows 7 OS. These instructions assume that you have a computer with Windows Vista installed on it.
Required:
· USB Flash Drive (4GB+)
· Microsoft OS Disk (Vista / Windows 7)
· A computer running Vista / Windows 7
Step 1: Format the Drive
The steps here are to use the command line to format the disk properly using the diskpart utility. [Be warned: this will erase everything on your drive. Be careful.]
Plug in your USB Flash Drive
Open a command prompt as administrator (Right click on Start > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt and select “Run as administrator”
Find the drive number of your USB Drive by typing the following into the Command Prompt window:
diskpart
list disk
The number of your USB drive will listed. You’ll need this for the next step. I’ll assume that the USB flash drive is disk 1.

Format the drive by typing the next instructions into the same window. Replace the number “1” with the number of your disk below.
select disk 1
clean
create partition primary
select partition 1
active
format fs=NTFS
assign
exit
When that is done you’ll have a formatted USB flash drive ready to be made bootable.

Step 2: Make the Drive Bootable
Next we’ll use the bootsect utility that comes on the Vista or Windows 7 disk to make the flash drive bootable. In the same command window that you were using in Step 1:
Insert your Windows Vista / 7 DVD into your drive.
Change directory to the DVD’s boot directory where bootsect lives:
d:
cd d:\boot

Use bootsect to set the USB as a bootable NTFS drive prepared for a Vista/7 image. I’m assuming that your USB flash drive has been labeled disk G:\ by the computer:
bootsect /nt60 g:

You can now close the command prompt window, we’re done here.
Step 3: Copy the installation DVD to the USB drive
The easiest way is to use Windows explorer to copy all of the files on your DVD on to the formatted flash drive. After you’ve copied all of the files the disk you are ready to go.
Step 4: Set your BIOS to boot from USB
This is where you’re on your own since every computer is different. Most BIOS’s allow you to hit a key at boot and select a boot option.
I used these instructions to get my new Dell Mini 9 laptop loaded with Windows 7 (the PDC bits). HTH.
