    Defective Sony flash drive. We are getting hundreds of reports on failure of the Sony units. Your drive must be new, so get it replaced under the one-year warranty. I don't know of anything you can do to return to reliable performance on the Sony drives.
    Sony makes their own, while most of the 87 available brands are made by Samsung. You will have your best luck with Lexar, LG, Memorex, Transcent, Kingston, and Corsair. Avoid SanDisk and no-name brands. OCZ is reportedly good so far.
