    arrgh, now when I plug it in it says "found new hardware ADIR ROM". I am assuming my flash drive is now screwed . . . also, sometimes it will know that it is a flash drive when I go into My Computer, but when I double click it, it says: "Please Insert a disk into Drive E:"

    Now, I think the best solution is to buy a new one, and put the old one in the package, return it, and now I have a new one. There isn't anything wrong with this anyway, because it has a two year warranty, and I haven't had it that long. And its easier to do it this way. Do you see anything wrong with this?

    No, nothing wrong there, they generally have a warranty of 2-5 years. Even allowing for the finite number of cycles that the transistors can handle they should last significantly longer than that.

    Also, you followed their instructions. With the new one I would recommend that you follow ours.

    Also, if you start to experience problems, save all data and deliberately reformat it perhaps once a fortnight or month depending on how much you use it

    I have certainly encountered problems with Sandisk SD cards in digital cameras and that seemed to be the work around. I am sure that it is something to do with their software/firmware, perhaps it has been fixed
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

    ok, thanks guys! I'll make sure to so wat you guys said. I guess that was nieve of me to think that they would last through that abuse. (I WAS using it like a HD, saving to it about every 45 seconds )
