I bought one pny pen drive of 2 GB after 4-5 mouths it gout courapted an when I try to explore/open and fromet a mesage is displyed by windows thati please insert disk drive in H:


Sometimes when a flash memory stick fails because it was not removed from the USB port properly. If the device is removed by just pulling it out of the USB port, it can cause the flash device to fail, you must click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon on the Task Bar and select the device you wish to remove and only do so when instructed to do so.

When the flash memory device appears to malfunction it maybe possible to restore it by reformatting it. Insert the flash drive into the USB port then Click on Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Disk Management.
Then right click on Disk 1 removable drive and click Format. After the flash drive has been formatted it will indicate that it is Healthy.

You need to format the external drive. Format the drive as primary drive and in FAT32. (FAT32 will allow data to be exchanged between MACs and PCs).
Insert the external hard drive into the USB port then Click on Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Disk Management.
Then right click on Disk 1 removable drive and click Format. After the flash drive has been formatted it will indicate that it is Health

How do I delete the pictures from my PNY Attache 4G memory stick now that I have transferred them to another computer?


insert the card into your computer. The best way is (dependding what os you have...) open my computer in xp or computer on vista. Now right click on the drive your card is in now left click on format. It will ask you if will want to delete all the files click yes and your done it's been reformatted like it is a brand new card.

Warning once you format the card you can not undo what has been done so make sure you really want to delete your card.

Good luck and take many more pictures.

8gb PNY micro sd card isn't recognized in my samsung Alias


If the phone failed to format the SD card, try to format it through your computer. Connect the phone through the USB port located at the back of the tower. You'll be prompted that the PC detected 2 USB drives, the phone and the SD card. You will see it by going to My Computer folder. From there, right click the Letter drive represents the SD drive then select Format. I hope this helps.
