I am using a generic thumb drive and cannot get any type of file to load up if it is past the 2 gig mark on the thumb drive. No matter what kind of file it is-movies, music, documents- it all will let me fill up until 2 gigs. To explain more clearly I put five 1gig movies on the drive. I can play the first 2 movies but the file is corrupt if I play past 2 gigs. Music is the same way. I have 20 songs on the drive and only the first 7 or so will play. Now I can fill up the drive completely and the files show up but only the first 2 gigs worth of data is un corrupted. I have tried formatting it and that also does not fix the problem. Also a friend told me that sometimes it is the number of files in the root and I needed to create a folder but alas that did not work either. Please someone help so I do not have to throw away a 16GB thumb drive!
