    Whenever I insert anything storage device into a USB 2 slot on my PC, I can't put anything into it because "the destination drive is full," but it's not. My USB stick and my external hard drive work on my parents pc. Also, the USB things used to work on my pc, but now they don't. could not 'safely removing hardware' cause this? and regardless of why, Is there any way to fix this?

    How is your USB stick formatted? Is it FAT32 ?

    sorry, I had no access to a computer for about a week, and then I forgot I posted this here. If it's not too late, yes it is FAT32.

    I did a quick google search on the error message (in quotes) and 'usb'.

    Here are some of the results

    Ya, that was it. Thanks.

    Seems kinda weird that an 8GB flash drive comes standard only being able to hold 4GB files. weird.
