  1. So I have this 8 GB flash drive and I went to put some pictures on it. I had ten pics I wanted to put on that are fairly small in size and the memory stick would only take 4 of them. There is no way those pictures equal 8 GB...what to do? Why is this happening?

    First of all... welcome to T/S! :D
    You must have somethng else on that drive.
    Are you the PC Administrator? Are you able to see hidden files?
    My 4GB flash drive is "U3" so it has U3 software on it, but I still have close to 4GB on it.
    To have pictures over 1GB n size isn't abnormal these days with the hi-res cameras around.
    Open "my computer" and see what you truly have on there.
    Were you getting any errors? If you post this info, it may help ;)
