I am absolutely positive it was plugged in properly, and i am also sure
the usb port isnt broken, i have tested all of them, though, this is
first time i have had so many in use concurrently, maybe its a power
issue? (which would be weird though, as flash devices shouldnt be using
so much power)

as for faulty, i did use that exact drive again, when i reverted back to
doing one by one.
