Why, what happens after the 6th?

There'll be an update that let's you use this type of memory to save games/downloads.

Nice one

According to amazon customer feedback there are issues with speed and compatibility with Windows 7 with this USB stick..

Heat and rep.

I bought this last week from amazon and I can say its rubbish!
Its fine for photo's but I bought it to record video and it is sloooowwww!
Avoid at all cost
:x

yeah got a scandisk 4GB works ok on files video etc but when you go over 8GB on these pen/flash drives they seen slow or files dont work

hotukdeals.com/ite…ive is a thread on the same drive. Its a basic USB key - it doesn't have the U3 stuff. It used to be cheaper a year or so ago, but this is a reasonable price now. Its not particularly quick - about 3MB/second to copy data to it (much slower if you have lots of small files), and about 13MB/second to copy data back onto a computer.

I have the an old style 4gb Cruzer that came with U3 (ditched that right away), it's the plastic version but it's still fine, just most of the white writing has nearly rubbed off.

Been on my keys since around August 2008. 6.5-7.5mb/sec write speeds with larger files.

Was £9.99 from Play at the time, got another for my Dad for £6.49 the following Christmas.

It's not entirely right but the general rule of thumb I use is that each new copy task you start doubles the time via the previous. So say I highlight 6 files to copy with shift and then drag them over... that's one process. Then I go and find a few more and copy them, that's another and it doubles the copy time, then another quadruples it & so on and so forth. The more simultaneous copies you have going, the slower it will go.

Thanks ordered doesn't really matter how long it takes, 2 mins,10 mins, it does the job,great for the car.

Try replacing Windows' default copy handler with Teracopy freeware;works much faster and is far more reliable. I've used it to move 100gb+ between drives and it never splutters or falls over, as Windows often does with big copy operations.

Teracopy is very good, but I have switched to ]Supercopier. To be honest I can't remember why. I think I may have found it more stable with large copies over USB. Certainly either of them beat the standard Windows routines.

excellent tip there m8 - just tried it myself and deffo better than windows. Thanks....:thumbsup:

Just had one of these arrive yesterday from Play (cost me £18). Decent stick - I was worried that the sliding action on this might become very loose after time but it seems it won't be a problem as it locks in the out position and you have to press it down to slide it back.

Play price included measly 0.5% Quidco, too, so I'm not gutted I didn't wait

i'd recommend a kingston hyperx 16gb . just bought another off ebay for £30. I know this is quite a bit more expensive but this is an amazing usb drive with fantastic read/write speeds :thumbsup:

Remember the 4GB file limit!

Please correct me if I'm wrong, I'd just heard of something like it... :thinking:

Supercopier is still in Beta!
And the website seems to be full of rubbish if you start looking at the comments.
Would you trust a beta program to copy important files?

ALL software is Beta, the main difference is in the honesty of the developer(s)! Try and find a finished and totally bug-free program, of any reasonable complexity.

Sometime you have to use experience, judgment and your own evaluation skills. When making large USB to USB copies with Teracopy I have experienced freezes, I have not suffered any problems with Supercopier. As always caveat emptor, but I will continue to use Supercopier until I find something better. I amy even revisit Teracopy.

All software developers are at great pains to stress that their software is not garanteed to be bug free of course, but normally a developer will offer a version which is not beta (but has known bugs) and a beta version for testing.

This is the first time I've ever seen rubbish comments on the site and the forum which are obviously put there by (one presumes) the developer. What purpose these serve, I don't know. Maybe not enough people submit comments, ask questions in his forum, I don't know, but it really, really, doesn't inspire confidence. So my experience and judgment tells me don't take the risk. The last thing you want is to move data and find it is corrupt, however fast and quickly it has been copied.
My two cents :-)
