Hello, this isn't software related but is certainly affecting my computer usage.
A flash drive has a fresh format, chkdsk shows no errors, so it should work OK and does until I take it to the school library computer and use it to save work files, download programs at high speed (8 mps) to the flash drive, etc.. Right now it is telling me the drive is unreadable and corrupted. I tried rebooting the school library computer to get a fresh boot but that didn't help. Other people here say their flash drives are working OK and the computer room people haven't a clue either.
At times I have had files disappear and access denied messages (on several flash drives I use) when I get home to install the files I downloaded so my procedure here has some big technical setting problem. Anybody have a clue what setting is causing this ?
I have XP SP3, the flash drive format is NTFS, and the drives work fine on my home computer otherwise. Maybe I should go back to FAT32 on flash drives but when they worked in the past they were more error-free in the long run on NTFS than a FAT32 formatted flash drive.
Thanks in advance for your responses.
