    Arrow Can you correct, please?

    Is this sentence right?

    -> "Do you have this flash disk in 4Gb?"

    it sounds odd...

    Now, have a look at this sentence:

    -> "Does the 6300c support twain? If so, does it have a twain drive?"

    In this case could I use "yes" rather than "so"? Or, could I use "not", instead?

    Thanks.

    Falcon

    "Do you have this flash disk with 4Gb?" (Do you mean disk or stick? If it's the USB flash memory, I'd call it a stick)

    I wouldn't use 'yes' if asking a question- it could be used on a form, though.
    If not- this has the opposite meaning, so it is not a replacement, but it's a correct form.

    Thanks for answer.

    So, I should use "with" rather than "in" in the first case, right? Yes, I mean a stick.
    Could I use also "about", instead?

    Re: Can you correct, please?

    If you mean 'about 4Gb', I wouldn't because that changes the meaning to 'approximately'.
