I have three kingston memory sticks of various capacities. I have been using them to move photos from one computer to another. Once I clear the photos off, it says "0 items" but the memory doesn't clear to re-use. Is there a simple trick I am missing?

from what i understand of flash memory it doesn't get cleared until it gets overwritten by new data. unless you purposefully write blanks to it.

if you have a 4gb stick, fill it up, then take everything off you should be able to fill it back up. are you unable to put any files on the stick?

NO I can't. It says there is not enough room but there are no items.
