    My two arrived separately on Wednesday and Thursday. I tried both and they worked but must admit I only transferred a couple of GB. I'll give them more of a test.

    Mine has taken about 3 hrs to transfer 20 gb of films :Eeek: must admit that they all play which is better than the 256gb ones that only played the first 7 gb :BigGrin: will see what they say :Smile: will have to search the wheelie bin for packaging :Doh:

    I've just tested my two, one overnight and one during today and both are OK.

    When they arrived one reported a capacity of 59.5 GB and the other 57.5 GB - both close enough given the storage system overheads.

    I tested by attempting to copy far more than 64 GB (same set of files in both cases) and both copied as far as the reported capacities.

    So, it isn't a scam as far as I can see.

    Maybe you were unlucky enough to get a duff drive, Terry, or perhaps the overheads are greater for storing video files (must admit I don't know).

    Hi Graham after filling the drives have you tried playing files back ? on the Chinese ones nothing above 7.5 gb played back, simply read file error - no idea if these are the same but as said before it shows 57 ish gb -not 64 gb and at 20.5 gb drive is full :Eeek:
    I have emailed them so will see what tomorrow brings --if no joy I will go down the PAYPAL route for a refund - but I don't think it will get there :Smile:
    1 GB = 1GB no matter what format ---I don't remember who told me about dodgy ones - maybe Buttons - but when I complained last time to PP the seller gave me a full refund and sent me another drive which did not work :BigGrin:

    I didn't look at individual files after filling the drives, Terry, but I did with the earlier test. I've formatted them now as well so can't look :Smile:

    I don't know if I have any files of more than 7.5 GB as I tend not to watch video on the laptop and most files are Open Office or photos.

    No Graham the files are not above 7.5 gb -most films are under 2 gb but anything above say 8 gb did not play back simply read corrupt file -yet if you loaded the so called CF on first it would play back :thumb: - it comes down to smart software that shows say 60 gb is there but anything above 4 x 2 gb does not play making the flash drive a 8 gb one :Smile:
    This one HAS LOADED 20.5 gb and plays it all back but is still showing 37 gb free yet it will not load simply says drive is full --hope that makes things clear --especially for you who will store photos on it -mine is simply films etc so no big deal if they are lost but pics would be a disaster if you did them as back up

    Sorry Terry, I misunderstood what you meant. I'll have a go at loading over 8GB and see what happens. I did just copy a film and played it back OK.

    My intended use of the USB drive is file transfer rather than backup. All my important files are backed up to a network drive, three USB drives and, when we are going away, the hard drive on the Vivobook and on another USB drive. Hopefully that's enough :BigGrin:

    I just wrote 11.7 GB worth of files to one of the drives and tried opening a sample of different types from different folders. No problems :thumb:

    Morning Graham try loading it upto the maximum and see what works --As said mine loads and works up to 20.5 gb then says full -but still shows 37 gb available making it in effect a 21 gtb drive -not 64 gb --I have 3x 64 gb PATRIOT X-PORTER from ZOOMBITS @ £17 EACH AND THEY ALL WORK UP TO 62 GB :thumb::thumb:
    TERRY -bloody caps :BigGrin:
