USB drives are breaking on me for some reason! Do these things tend to break or am I just really unlucky?
A few months back I bought a 2GB drive. I think it lasted about 2 months before it started giving me errors whenever I tried to copy things on it. It was from a crappy brand (something like Nexxtech I think) so I figured maybe that's why it didn't last very long.
Then I bought another one, same size. But this time it's a "Crucial" brand and it's one of those really flat drives that doesn't have the usual USB casing around it. I've had it for less than 3 months and now it just won't be detected at all by either my PC or my Xbox360.
It's really useful to me but I really don't feel like buying a new one every few months. Any tips on selecting a good one that will last me? Are there things that I should do/ should not do to make sure it keeps working for a long time?
