Ihave purchased a couple of non branded usb memory sticks 32gb each.

I have written files to one of them, which I can view as being 'on the stick', but XP freezes when I try and transfer them to the PC.

Does anyone know the reason for this?

I have installed the Windows XP supoort for 'exFat' to my PC, but that does not help either.

How can I recover these files-or is it a case of wiping the memory stick clean and trying to start again?

Many thanks for reading & hopefully some helpful replies!!

It is quite possible that you have a bad USB stick. Can you try them on a different computer and see if you get the same results?
