I must have gotten the dud or lemon of the bunch

Pros: The price was good at least
Cons: This USB thumbdrive was a troublesome little sucker. It would not format or be recognize by either Linux Mint or Windows. Supposedly, there was a way to possibility save it through a convoluted use of the terminal in Linux, but it was not a guarantee, not to mention a major pain in the rear. I, literally, through the thing away after a week of trying to get it seem by any OS.
Cons: Bought it about 6 months ago as a back up, well took it out of the package and plugged it in and windows does not recognize it until formatting. tried formatting and cannot format. the drive is DOA!
Cons: this is a piece of junk!! and a waste of money. 1 dollar on it would even be a waste of money on it, because 1 buck can buy you a McDouble instead of owning garbage. it is using ntfs so i can put files bigger than 4gb in size on it. had a 7gb file on it, a few days later, tried to access this crapdrive and just like everyone else said, it told me to reformat in order to use... i hate you memorex , because of you, i beat my dog
Cons: I gave 1 star in my earlier review for this, as the drive came unformatted and it could not be formatted by win-XP. So, I downloaded the driver from Memorex and could format using it. So, changing to 4 stars. Would have 5 stars if I did not have to go through this.
Cons: Worked for a few times. Then started getting read errors. Did a quick format, that didn't help. I did a full format, which did not help. Now the light on the drive blinks continuously. When I try to write to it, or reformat it, or whatever a window pops up saying "This is no longer located in the computer"
