i’m having a strange problem with usb drives - can anyone help?
i have a 16GB sandisk and when i copy media files (music/video) onto it from files already copied/converted to my windows7 laptop, they play fine from the stick on the laptop, (and also on linux and android machines.)
i just bought a new 32GB sandisk, and when i copy those same files to it in exactly the same way, they won’t play at all, not on the W7 laptop, nor the linux or android.
as a matter of interest i also have a toshiba 64GB stick bought recently and files copied to that won’t play either.
i have an older usb stick (over 5years old) which is only 185mb capacity, but the same files copied to that one play on all machines too. But this stick is too small for all my files.
any suggestions as to why files won’t play on the 32GB & 64GB sticks? Is FAT32 formatted differently on the larger disks & is that the problem?
