Sorry about the off topic post...

Do USB flash drives do integrity checking with CRC or the like?  A friend of mine has had 
a file go corrupt on an 8GB thumbdrive without error.  The file was just text which had 
some X's turn into Y's.  I've tried some googling but I can't narrow the search. :-/
