    Problem with my USB flash drive!!!
    I recently purchased a 4 GB SanDisk flash drive and today I was trying to drag-and-drop some music files to it from iTunes. I have done this before and it worked perfectly well, but this time when I drag the files to Finder, it acts like it's going to work and then nothing copies over. Is this a problem with my flash drive, or is there something else I need to do to fix it??

    If what's on the Sandisk already is not of great importance, then I would suggest that your reformat it completely with Disk Utility, using FAT16 or FAT 32. The Sandisk may have been removed inadvertently without being ejected first.

    For me, I know this may seem like a makeshift solution, I eject the device then put it in again and everything works fine.

    Press any key to continue, or any other key to cancel.
