Lately I have noticed strange things like sometimes when I
plug it in and open it in explorer it closes so I try to
format it and it formats to 750MB and is working fine...
What happened with 250MB? I used linux and win xp with it.
In win XP I didn't use safely remove hardware because it is
set to "fast remove" and I didn't unmount it in linux. If
some clusters failed it would be logical to me that the
size is reduced only by the size of that clusters? Can I
make it 1GB somehow again? What can I do?
