Please do not answer unless you habitually use Live USB.(booting an operating sytem from USB)
I have been booting Ubuntu 10 Notebook edition with a 2GigaByte Kingston flash drive. I used the USB installer from pendrivelinux. It was fine for a few weeks, then it became corrupted. I bought 5 PNY Attache 2GB drives that will boot but will not shut down.
Does anyone know why some USB drives work and others don't? Also, do you know of an inexpensive one that works for Live USB? I only need 2GB.
