thanks for the swift reply

unfortunally the first link didn't help, i've done that already and still the same problem, and like i said i get a personally information overload if i use the forum or google....

not lazy but like we say in the netherlands we can't see the forest thru the trees.... (or something like that :-) )

Sounds about right ;)

Maybe there actually is a problem with the file system on the stick? Have you tried to do a file system check on a Mac?
I have never used HFS+ myself, so I can't really help you any further...
