1. Beware of inexpensive USB memory sticks

Recently we have received some feedback from customers using no-name USB memory sticks with our USB Stick CopyStations.

We have been doing more research and testing with low-cost USB memory sticks. Whenever problems occurred, there were always no-name products involved. USB memory sticks from international brand manufacturers did not cause any difficulties.

USB memory sticks of dubious origin are also a topic in the media. The leading German computer magazine c’t has already discussed this topic in two issues.

Problems can also be caused by USB memory sticks, where capacities vary within one production load. Please also read the paragraph «Troubleshooting» in the User Manuals for our USB Stick CopyStations.

Moreover, USB memory sticks occasionally made a negative impression with poor performance rates.

We therefore strongly recommend that you only use USB memory sticks from international brand manufacturers such as SanDisk, Lexar or Transcend.
