Are you properly disconnecting the drive before removing it?  Unless you have the quick disconnect function enabled that might be affecting file storage on the drive. (Right-click the "Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media" icon in the lower right systray and select your device).

I'll second compnovo.  Sounds like you are not properly ejecting the device that is using caching.  I've seen USB drives become corrupted because they were not removed properly and highly recommend using the Eject and waiting for the Safe to remove message.

Thanks for the replies. I did use the safely remove hardware option. I fixed it in the end using the error check function which seemed to do the trick. Thanks again for your advice.
