I have a USB 64Gig flash drive that i use for keeping certain date like films and Music on which basically has been working perfectly.
So i have a iMac and my Mother has just purchased and New Windows PC with Windows 8 on it,so i have put a lot of the type of music she likes on the sick,various albums and a few films and all looked ok.
Yesterday i proceeded to Wales to set up her new PC,now i have never seen Windows 8 working and it looked nothing like the previous versions of windows i was better used to.
Anyway thats not the question,when i put the Usb Flash drive in the side of the PC and clicked on the drive all the music was listed,all the albums and all the other stuff,however once i clicked on the album there was nothing inside,no mp3 or any data.
Now i thought it was a Mac/Windows PC thing and there was a conflict or whatever,anyway i got home late last night and today i put the flash usb drive into my Mac and i found exactly the same,all the file names but nothing in them,so i tried to erase the disk and start again but kept getting can not erase disk error,finally after ejecting it and putting it in other usb ports i erased the files.
But before i did all that i deleted the content and added them all over again,clicked inside each folder and all the mp3 tracks were there,however as soon as i ejected the usb flash drive and then put it back in again the folders where there but again nothing inside them.
The format of the Disk is MS-DOS [FAT] and i think thats what its suppose to be to be compatible with both Windows and Macs….Anyway any suggestion ?
I have yet to transfer the data back over again at this point because I'm sick of ejecting the disk and wasting 30 minutes to find nothing in the files only the original folder names of the albums i added.
When i do add each album which are copied over to the usb flash drive and look inside once copied all are there,but if i eject the disk and then put it back in all have gone.
Any simple suggestions would be helpful,I'm not to technically minded so keep it really simple if you got a answer.
