Amazing price for a 32gb USB flash drive, 32gb for less than £10, got to be worth every penny!

The Play.com Flash Drive from Play.com makes it easy to quickly save and transport your important data. Users can transfer documents, pictures, movie clips and music to other computers with a USB port.

Currently £13.99 but with overall good reviews.

Bargain price, but dreadful product, have sent 2 back for failing, ended up with a refund

32gb drives seem to be hovering around the £10 mark now which is nice! I have had this drive for over a year and never had a problem, pretty fast write speed too

Good price, but I wouldn't feel comfortable trusting it with 32GB of anything even half important.I like to know my data is still going to be there when I plug my memory stick into a computer.

Heat for the price, but I wouldn't buy one.

Bought one of these not so long ago and it was faulty so I sent it back.

Reviews look ok.Speeds are pretty good for a cheap stick.
Heat added.

I bought one at £16 about 12-18 months ago and never had a problem with it. For its price it is slow but you would expect that for a cheap drive. I own 3 play drives and none have failed so far (touch wood). You all must have bad luck. Excellent price for it though :)

Gotta say I had one of these a while ago and it was a 16GB, even though it quoted 16gb is wasnt true 16gb as it could only hold files smaller than 4gb. For me wanting to transfer 9gb file it was useless unless i could split the file.

I think you'll find that was an issue with the drive being formatted as FAT32 rather than the USB drive - reformat it as NTFS and it will accept files over 4GB.

Reformat as NTFS rather than FAT32?

The larger capacity drives always come as FAT32 by default in order to work with older versions of windows or other OS's. Just follow the steps in this guide and you'll be able to save larger files.

Not sure if anyone has mentioned this to you but if you format it as NTFS instead of FAT32 then you can transfer any sized files.

or exFAT, which might be a better choice for plugging into devices.

Bargain price.

Looks like a cheap brand and many returns too by the look of things. Will pay a few more quid for a recognized brand.

I've got the 16gb one and never had a problem with it, touch wood. Bought a 32gb one from the Hut over the weekend for £10.99.

Have you tried formatting it as NTFS?
