Just in case, you did not partition the whole key... right?

One test would be to try to copy 9 files of 1GB and see at what 
point it fails (if it does)...

When I was making my install usb keys, some of them did not seem to 
like "big" files for some unknown reason... Had to replace the DVD 
iso files with the CD ones.
