View Full Version : Computers Defective Flash Drive?

So I just bought a 8 GB flash drive and I'm trying to back up my pictres on my main computer on it. Only problem is I think this thing is defective. When I pull over my pictures about half the time they come out distorted and corrupted. When I open them it'll just be half the picture and weird pixels will be all over it. I even tried doing one picture at a time with the same result. Is there something I'm missing? I'm just pulling over the picture from one folder to the picture of the "removable disk" from my hard drive.

I've never had a drive with that issue, but that's certainly not "normal." The method you're using shouldn't cause any issues or anything.

If you do the same thing with a document (like a Word doc), does it come out corrupted as well? If so, I think that pretty much guarantees the drive has issues.
