Been having this silly kinda problem with my 1GB Samsung USB Flash drive. The drive is supposed to be 1GB as it displays 1GB in it's properties when connected to Windows, and even after formatting, it still remains as 1GB. Problem is: the drive can only withold the first 15 megabytes worth of data I save on it. What I mean is, I could save 1GB worth of files on it and the files would be contained in it but when I try accessing the files, only the first 15 megabytes opens, the others simply WON't open or would open as corrupted documents. So, out of 1GB I can use only 15 megs, that's simply ridiculous. Any help in solving this problem would be greatly appreciated. My best bet would be using some kinda utility to reformat the drive since Windows isn't helping matters here or maybe re-partitioning it. Suggestions, comments and links to helpful articles are welcomed.
