    If the answer to my last post is yes, then I can only assume you have an issue with that specific drive and I would return it for a refund or exchange. Good luck.

    I really think you have done everything that is required to prove there is an issue with that specific drive. I would either return it or contact Verbatim support.

    That is not an apples-to-aples test; however, it does prove your flash drive may not be compatible with 8.1. Check with Verbatim support.
