I tried to delete pictures from the 4MB drive. When I reloaded the pictures it would not take the full capacity even though it said it had plenty of memory. Why?

Thanks,

Jerry

Copy the pictures that are currently on the flash-drive to some other drive. Now re-format the flash-drive.

Also bear in mind that a 4GB flash drive when formatted doesn't actually give you 4GB to play with owing to differences in the way the capacity is (wrongly) calculated by manufacturers compared to the true mathematical calculation.

4GB works out at approx 3.7GB after formatting.
