The PNY Turbo USB Flash Drive features impressive read and write speeds paired with a unique design and a variety of storage space sizes to suit your needs. It also comes with a warranty so you can rest assured knowing you'll be covered in the rare case of any issues or accidents that may occur.

The first step to try when encountering any hardware related problems is restarting your computer. This is a simple and effective solution that will often fix the problem without any additional intervention on your part.

If you have multiple computers available, try connecting your PNY flash drive to each one in turn to determine which is the culprit. If the drive will not work on all of them, it is most likely due to a hardware problem with your device that requires some professional intervention.

You can download a new firmware update for your device from the manufacturer's website to disable the write-protection feature if you run into any issues with this. This is an easy process and can be completed in minutes.

If you have a file recovery tool installed on your PC, such as AOMEI Partition Assistant, you can use this to convert the unallocated space back to NTFS so that Windows will recognize it. Once this is complete, you can begin using your USB drive as normal. Make sure to store any recovered files on a different device than the one you used for the recovery process.
