I have been using a 1GB of flash drive for over a year now with no problems and decided to get a 8G flash drive but I'm having problems with it. I
'm not sure if the flash drive its self is bad of if I can do something to make it work right.
I have windows XP and the 1Gb flash drive works in the FAT and it works great. The new flash drive when I go to reformat it says it is a FAT32. Every file I put in it gets corrupted...jpeg picture files are changed to a file that I can't open or delete unless I do a reformat. Any file I put in the new flash drive and try to open it says ...that it can't be used because part of the file is not there or couldn't be open. I tried to put a zip file, an adobe document, Microsoft word document, and a spreed sheet and all of them are way under 1 or 2 Mb except for the avi file which was about 700MB.
I have went to the properties on this flash drive and did a reformat many times and it doesn't seem to change how it work. Is there something I can do to make this work right or is this just some bad flash drive??? Thank you for any help you can give me
