I always stick to SanDisc memory sticks, their transfer rate is slower than most but they are more reliable and compatible. You do have to format them to NTFS to transfer files bigger than 4gb, I noticed a reviewer left instructions. That's a very drawn out process, this is easier.
Plug it in, select computer from the start bar, locate the memory stick, right click, select format, select NTFS from the file type drop down box, select quick format and then start. Job done, it takes less than two minutes.
