Hello. I have a Sandisk 2.0GB USB thumb drive that I've been using for quite some time now. It's one of those ones that came with that stupid U3 software (though I got that off). Anyway, since doing a clean install of Leopard, this drive's been giving me some problems. Data transfer to and from the drive seems to be much slower than it was under Tiger, and ejecting it is always a pain. It was instantaneous before, but now I need to wait for a minute after the last action before I can eject it. Otherwise it will say it's in use. The last time it wouldn't eject at all (kept saying an app was accessing it, even though it wasn't) and I just pulled it eventually. I just reformatted it (FAT32 so I can use the school's Windows machines to print from), but it still seems to be an issue. Anyone else have similar problems? Do you think it's an issue with the drive or with my USB performance under Leopard? I haven't tried it with another USB drive yet, but my USB printer has been working good as always. Thanks. P.S. It's a Micro Cruzer. I just got a big file off of it (1.29GB), and the transfer rate was very erratic.
