What memory stick did you get? I believe most memory sticks are preformatted to work on both Mac and Windows. I've only used SanDisk Flash memory sticks myself and I have never had to format them. How did you format your stick? I have read there have been some problems when users formatted the memory sticks themselves. I guess it depends on how to you formatted it.Just bought myself an 8gb memory stick... Formatted it as well.
I need to put some files on it (about 48MB in total), as soon as it gets to 2MB it freezes and this happens:
That's the problem I've been reading about with other people. It seems there is a problem when formatting to FAT in Mac for memory sticks. I've read that the solution is to format it to FAT using Windows. This is all second hand information so take it for what it's worth. Like I said I've always had mine working right from the start so I've never dealt with this personally.It said it was preformatted but it wasn't working... I read online that the solution was to format it as MS DOS through disk utility.
