Hello Everyone!!!

Actually I've a pen drive (32 GB) which is labeled as Kingston but it is not! Its a fake device!
Now before formatting it, it was working properly but after formatting it the problems occurs---
1. File of big size just like a divx movie (700MB) does not works!
2. File names has been changed to a unknown character! (Not caused by a virus)
3. Files of size less than 1 MB is working properly!
4. In Disk Management it shows 777 MB unallocated disk space!

Now please help me to fix this problem!!!

Thankz!

you could try reformatting once more, and format as FAT32.

No man! There was no virus, this was because of CHINA FAKE PEN DRIVES, which are typically available at some markets at rupees 250 only ($5)! Now think, if someone gives you a 32GB pen drive at a cost of $5 in place of $35 - $36, what will happen to its quality!
Any way, thanks for your suggestion...
