I've found that I have to use memory chips with write speeds faster than 100 MB/S in my Drone. 100 MB/S SD cards eventfully fail and become unusable. As for your situation I wonder what would happen if you only use the cheap Chinese in the non-blue USB ports. Blue ports are USB 3 and are able of much faster speed. Maybe your computer thinks they're faster than they are actually capable.
Had not thought of the speed angle. The office computer is a bit old as it is a refurbished model. It has USB ports on the front and rear. I will try using the Chinese sticks with the rear USB ports to see if there is a difference.
What still seems strange is that I added a fair amount of music to the Red USB stick when new to me. Then it failed. I took it to a friend who did something with it on a Win 10 machine.
Later my Chromebook would read the original music and the music played properly. The computer that originally put the music on the stick would not. When I put the Red stick back into the original computer a message says there is a problem. It doesn't seem to fix it however. The Red Stick seems to continue to work in the ChromeBook which may have a slower USB capability. None of these sticks (exFAT) seem to work in my Silverado although another FAT formatted stick works fine. I can't format these sticks as FAT due to their size. I guess exFAT means the sticks can be used by both Windows and IOS machines?
