System: ASUS X551MA laptop 64 bit Windows 8.1 updated from Windows 8.0
PNY 8GB FLash Drive that came in bundle with notebook
Issue: When I first used the flashdrive to transfer files from my XP Desktop some of the files were not on the drive when plugged into laptop.
I copied my entire "MY PICTURES" folder. That folder contained 20 sub folders and about a dozen loose JPEGs totaling 2.5 GB.
I also added 3 JPEGS from other locations on the XP. Finally, I copied over a game application from the PROGRAM FILE Directory.
The game file and the 3 misc JPEGS showed up and transferred OK but the MY PICs folder was not visible from the notebook
I recopied the MY Pics folder onto the flash and checked to make sure it was there, which it was(on the XP) but when I plugged into notebook, it said the drive was empty.
I copied same files onto a CD and they all transferred fine.
I checked Device Manager and it said device was working properly and ran troubleshooter anyway. Checked OK.
I checked for driver update but there was none available
I formatted the drive on the notebook and tried just copying a single picture from XP and it does not transfer.
I copied a JPEG from the notebook and it transferred OK to the XP.
