Default Flash Drives

<----- New Guy :::bows:::

I have the worst luck with these things. I pride myself on my broad knowledge of computer hw & sw but this stuff just burns me up.

Why is it that my jump drives always corrupt my files. It drives me insane. Thus far I have owned a very flashy (pun intended) Cruzer Titanium 1gb and TWO (took one back recently) GeekSquad 1gb flash drives. Whenever I put files on these drives they almost invariably come back corrupt when I (later) attempt to open them.

Am I alone in this netherworld of un-productive flash media?

USB drives are like hard drives.

Make sure you format it to the proper file system.
Most USB drives automatically come formatted, i guess you got a bad one!
