  1. I have a 4Gig Ram-Bo USB drive. Even when it's empty it says I only have 76.6MB available. Has anyone ever heard of this? I've been using it for about a year & this is the first time I've come across this problem.

    What brand of drive is it?
    Some of the SanDisk Cruzer drives are actually configured as two drives: the full capacity main one, and a very small partition containing a software suite that loads when the drive is mounted/connected.

    Otherwise, try reformatting the drive?

    gavilan is right, check to make sure it isn't 2 partitions, do that by looking in Disk Management.

    Where'd you get the drive from? eBay is full of fake USB flash drives.
