    I have a 1gb kingston flashdrive that I use all the time. I use it on PCs and Macs at home, office, campus, etc. I was on my iMac the other day accessing files and it totally locked up the computer and the files were not opening. I had to pull the power cord to shut the damn thing down.

    Today I tried the flash drive on my MBP at work and it won;t mount at all. I then tried it on my PC and it mounted but showed I different drive name and wouldn't open.

    What's going on? Is it just dead? It showed sign before when using it with my iMac but nothing this bad.

    Sounds like it's dead... That's not a huge loss though, 1GB is ~5$
