Yeah it's strange to me too but the drivers are up to date...

It's far more likely to boil down to a poor quality PSU than an OS generated USB over-volting fault that fries flash drives whenever they're plugged in; if it were the OS then these forums would be brimming with such complaints

Pendrive

I fail to understand how you mean the pendrive broke, are you meaning it malfunctioned? Or its physically destroyed? Software cannot destroy physical hardware unless its a virus designed to cut voltage, flash voltage and so on.
Another factor maybe the pendrives you purchased are from a bad batch that were flawed from the factory. I have a 4 gig pendrive inserted into a 64 bit machine this very minute with no errors. I have a suggestion for you. If you purchase another flash drive make it a different brand, shut your system completely off, insert the pendrive and spool up your system and see what happens.

Regards,
Adrian

I meant broke as in stopped working and will not ever work again. I don't know if it's a matter of voltages as you suggest or not. Personally I believe there was some crap done with the MBR or something like that that penrives have.
I've had this pendrive for over a year now and used it with many computers and systems and it was all fine...
Well anyway I guess it's not a common issue cause if it were there should be more posts like these. All that I know is that me and my friend lost some pendrives and flashdisks after plugging them to W7. Maybe it's a coincidence...

Kingston/Ricoh SD card 8 GB always warns to scan but no problem found
I have a Kingston/Ricoh SD card (8 GB). When I eject it via "safely remove hardware" tray icon and then insert it to another laptop, it always warns to scan for errors but after scanning there is always no problem found. Why do I always get this scary warning? A USB key (also 8 GB) does not do this.
