Why Doesn’t your USB Duplicator machine work with your flash drives

A common assumption when you buy a USB duplicator machine is that it will work with the USBs that you intend to data load.

Unfortunately this sometimes is not the case.

Why doesn’t my machine work correctly and what can I do to resolve the issue.

The promotional USB market is largely drive by cost.  The components that go into a USB Flash Drive are primarily two : the controller chip and NAND chip.

When you source low cost USBs, many of these “ad specialty” companies that also sell hats, and mugs and pens, etc. are not Flash Drive experts, so they chose the lowest cost product to offer to their clients. These low cost items are a “you get what you paid for” product.  The controllers and NAND are often low grade or inferior products that are not typically made to work well with a USB duplicating machine.

In the industry, there are so many chip manufacturers that the USB Duplicator companies will only work with, and certify compatibility with a subset of these.  There are just too many chip manufactures to keep up with.

It is this compatibility issue that will cause your USB duplication machine to fail.  When you call the company that made your USB duplicator, they will often say, “well you have low quality drives” or “buy the drives from us and will not have any issues”, often at a premium price.
