Specs: Windows 7
My 4GB PNY USB drive only shows 3.67GB. I need 3.8 for the program I want to put on it. Its advertised as a 4GB but doesn't have 4GB usable space.

Drives marketed as 4Gb in reality have approx 4,000,000.000 bytes of available usable space. Windows does not measure Gb in decimal but binary so in effect any drive on the market will only measure about 93% of advertised size when viewed in windows. There is nothing you can do to fit a 3.8gb file onto a "4gb" flashdrive.
