- Thumb Drive 1 GB problem

more than 1 GB is stored. If there is less than 1 GB of data stored, it
works fine. And it also works fine if I copy more than 1 GB of data onto
the drive until I remove the drive from the USB port. After the drive is
reinserted into the USB port of the computer (or another computer), the last
data copied to the drive above 1 GB becomes corrupted.
I'm running XP on a couple of desktop computers and Vista on a laptop
computer and the problem is the same on all computers. I've tried
reformatting the drive but it doesn't make any difference.
Any idea on what the problem might be?

I suspect you may have bought a fake drive, one that is only
1GB but reports higher to temporarily fool customers. Such
were commonly found on ebay for awhile.
That is, unless it previously was able to store the full
capacity without this corruption occurring. What brand and
model is it (though if it's fake, it may be counterfeit
