    Good Day

    I have a 64GB USB flash Drive (Transcend), and when copying files to it, for example movie files (AVI, MP4, etc), not all the files are copied (although it takes up all the space of the copied files), and the files that did copy successfully, cannot be rendered and are corrupted.

    I formatted my drive fully (not quick format) a couple of times, and I also did a chkdsk /f /r on it, but the data on it is still corrupted(the drive shows up fine in windows as an exFAT formatted drive).

    Should I throw the USB flash drive away, or is there a way to save it?

    Thank you

    Nope, still no luck. Guess I should buy better quality next time. Bought a cheap flash drive from a sleazy vendor.
    Thank you for the help. Appreciate

    There are a lot of fakes around though, especially on Ebay, mostly larger capacity and from the Far East.

    Did you run h2testw.exe ? That should show if it's a fake or not.
