Hello Mxcats12,

Thank you for the info which shed some light on the issue.

Unfortunately, the Pny mini attaché 8gb is not a trusted and viable memory device and in a short time period they get easily damaged beyond repair. Sometimes, all that one needs to do it to disconnect without the proper method and it may get unserviceable.

They are not expensive, but they are a bunch of problems.

I suggest that you purchase such drives as Kingston or Transcend.

I wish I could help you further but I am afraid that your Pny is good for the dust bin.

Sorry
hi Ambucias, i have same problem.. mine is Kingston 16gb Data Traveler 101C

thanks.
