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.

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.

Will cruzer micro work on win 98


Windows 98 does not have USB drivers, you need to install a USB driver, check with the computer shop before you purchase the flash drive.

I purchased a Cruzer USB 2.0 Flash Drive 4gb and when I inserted it into port for first time, I think it installed some kind of driver first and I was able to use it find. How ever when I when to my DVD RW...


Unless your computer or flash drive did something weird, the USB drive had nothing to do with the DVD drive issue. (There have been drives sold with malware do to issues at the manufacturer/distributor. These affect the registry so you might try rolling back to a previous configuration in the System Restore after you do a malware/antivirus scan either in Safe Mode or from a LiveCD (preferred). The advantage of the LiveCD is that the malware really can't protect itself since the boot sequence is fully independent of the usual OS.)

Most likely though your optical drive failed for some other reason. Check the device manager for any driver issues (Control Panel > Hardware or Computer > right click on the optical drive and choose Properties and then the Hardware Tab followed by clicking on the optical drive. Then click Properties and the Drivers tab.). If you can, try a disc cleaner to clean the lens. Also check that the cables are fully seated (both to the motherboard and the optical drive). Consider trying a new data cable.

With today's prices, it usually isn't worth repairing an optical drive. However the most common issue is the lens tracking and lens transport system.

I hope this 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 not recognised


Hello ak1979 ...

1. You're plugging in your Transend USB flash drive to your computer's USB port (as you've done many times successfully before with this SAME flash drive)?

2. It says "windows not recognise usb drive due to malfunction"?
a. Is that EXECTLY what the error says?
b. Is "it" an error dialog (window that pops up), or an error message from your Windows Event error logs? If a dialog, are there any pertinent error message entries in your Windows Event (System) log [Start > Run > type "eventvwr.msc" (without quotes), then "OK"]?

Try a bit of deductive troubleshooting:
  1. Restart (Reboot) your system [for a fresh start, if you will].
  2. Try plugging in your USB flash drive again, but in a DIFFERENT USB port.
  3. Try plugging in ANY OTHER "known good" USB device into the same USB port(s) used thus far that failed.
NOTE: If you EVER get any indication Windows recognizes the flash drive (like no error msg, or it shows in "My Computer"), IMMEDIATELY perform a "Check Disk" on it:
  1. Start > Run... > type "cmd" (without quotes), then "OK".
  2. Type "chkdsk DRIVE_LTR: /f" (without quotes), then hit "Enter" [where DRIVE_LTR is the drive letter of your USB drive]. EXAMPLE: chkdsk E: /f
Good luck, and please post back:
  • to provide any corrections/updates/clarifications.
  • if you have any further questions.
  • to let me know how things work out.
