    As far as I'm concerned there's no problem with any drives (unless fake or faulty) as long as they are prepared properly.
    I personally use a Cruzer Facet 8gb and it's never let me down but I have used about 30 usb's of varying age and size and they all work.

    I have used Kingston, TDK, Sandisk and even unbranded ones upto 32gb, all worked fine......As the previous post stated, they just need to be prepared correctly

    I have used a toshiba 128 gb and Cruzer 8 and 16gb all work perfectly. I'd say USB issue is only a myth

    usb issues is not a myth as loads have had issues even on original receivers,most forums usually state not bigger than 8gb,kingston,cruzer and integral work for me.

    I still think loads of people have had issues because they think a simple Windows format will do the job, and usually it won't.
    I've flashed my ZG with a 500Gb bus powered HDD and a 128mb microsd card in a usb adapter so I'm firmly of the opinion that it's preparation rather than the media that causes the problems.

    I have found doing a full format in Fat32 is what works for me and I have used some rubbish usb sticks just to see if they will work and they have! I have seen loads of errors that have been the data on the stick has been the problem or they have not unzipped etc.
