I need to program 1,500 USB's....help!

I have 1,500 USB memory sticks that need files loaded onto them. I have 3 ports on my computer so I usually load 3 at a time.

One thing that slows me down is that the driver installs every time i plug a new USB in (even though they are all the same type). Any way to fix that?

Any advice on how to make this any quicker than what I am planning to do?

I was wondering if a USB hub would work so i had a 4-port laying around and tried it but it would only load the files to one of the ports at a time.

PLEASE HELP!!! I HAVE TO LOAD THESE TONIGHT!!!

How are you programming skills? I'm not sure what your current procedure is but the ideal solution is a software program that automatically detects when you insert a USB key, loads whatever files you need onto it, then notifies you when it's done. Then insert the next one and so on...

tomorrow, repeat.

PS: If you make the image files smaller, you'll be able to get more pictures on them. Smart keeping all those off your HD though. It's always risky keeping those kinds of pics around.

That's what you get for waiting until the last minute.

(Don't know if you really did; it'd be something I would do.)

With 1500 drives, i would expect some amount of data corruption. I say 2%, so 1500 X .02 = 30. Thats 30 of them i would just skip and leave blank, then you can add another 15 (1%) for your margin of error (less than 1% and you are considered a machine...and you dont want to have the kind of rep with your bosses). Bammo, thats 45 less you have to do now because of me.

Your welcome
