    I recently purchased a usb memory stick. Every time i transfer files to it they cannot be opened. If i unplug the memory stick and plug it back in again i get a message saying the memory stick needs to be formatted.Ive formatted it with FAT, FAT32 and NTFS, but the same thing happens.
    Is there anything i can do to resolve this problem?

    Does it do the same thing on another computer? I would try returning or exchanging it, it simply may be defective.
