I am a total newbie to flash drives, so I have no idea of what your talking about. The flash drive in question is in the cap of a pen. It stored 1 gig of data. There is NO NAME or brand name affixed to it so I can't query the company. It was a promotional device that I thought was really cool and just didn't live up to my expectations/ fantasy (sigh). What a bummer, I hate it when that happens. Any ideas?
