I have a 2 GB flash drive someone gave me and when I get it about halfway filled up with files it starts to convert the later ones to names with garbage and then I cannot access the files. The older files all seem to be ok. I check the used space and I have over half left sometimes (1 GB) but it keeps happening. I've already formatted the drive several times. Would the USB drives in the front of the pc pose a problem vs the USB drives accessed through the back (on the motherboard)? I'm also wondering what is the best brand of flash drive so that I may buy another one to see if I have the same problem. Does anyone have any knowledge of this problem themselves and can tell me how to fix it? I read the tutorials on how to use the drive and I am not doing anything wrong as far as I can tell. Thanks for any help.

Thanks Dogg, I think the key words here were "someone gave it to me". LOL I will, though, format it one more time and try it on another pc at your suggestion. I am disappointed to learn flash drives are not very reliable. Thank you again.
