I'm doing this as a public service and apologize if it is on the wrong thread, but since flash drives are important to many of us, I'm issuing this alert. A neighbor of mine who works at General Services Agency of the City of New York states there's an alert for all IT employees to check whether any Kingston flash drives purchased at Target and Walmarts are not counterfeit, easily detectable because they display no activity light. These are counterfeit China flash drives shipments with corrupted memories. It behooves you to do that simple test yourself and not wait for Target or Walmart to alert you! Yes, someone we know got "hit" with such gifts from Christmas, 8, 16 and 32 gig flash drives. You might want to contact Kingston for support because the stores might be cagey about admitting there's problem!
