I have recently purchased 2 x Toshiba USB sticks, 32gb.
I am unable to- load my video files to these sticks. Individually they load and work correctly until the total space used is 8-9gb then any files loaded do not run.
I have deleted all files and reloaded them and the previous files which would not run will run if the total is below 8-9gb then once again any more files will not run.
I have tried several times and now one of the memory sticks is telling me it is write protected and consequently is of no use.
is there a way of removing the writr protect. Ther are no external switches
It's possible that you got some counterfeit hardware. For some time now it's been known that unscrupuluous manufacturers have been labeling low-capacity (8gb or less) flash drives as 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB and selling them on the open market. On the OS (Windows etc) these drives will show as having the correct amount of memory, but when you go to access them they quit at their "real" capacity limit.
