Copies of files on the 8GB flash drive are not the same. zip files canot be opened picture files do not show the picture, but the byte size look OK. I never had this problem with 2 or 4 GB flash drives. Any clue what is wrong?
I also have a 8gb flash, but it corrupts large files (e.g. video).
An extracted DVD can be in excess of 4gb before you shrink it.
And most flash drives are out of the box formatted as FAT not FAT32 (something about compatibility with really old macs?) which only supports 2gb max.
And also actually FAT32 theoretically supprots far far far more than 32gb. The format program included in Windows 2000 and above is just limited to creating FAT32 file systems of 32Gb or less because a large FAT32 file system becomes slow and inefficient very easialy and MS wanted to discourage its use.
With vista Sp2 we will probably see further use of eXFAT
