    I have been trying to put some files on my 16gb flash drive and it copies perfectly at first then once I pull it and try to stick it into another usb slot it changes all the files into folders with strange writing that looks like this: │FΘëJó⌐%.=y

    Here's what it looks like with the drive open

    You can try to format it, but it will erase all the files on the drive. Right click the Flash drive under My Computer and click "Format."
