USB flash drive. can not copy file without losing properties

i read an old post that discussed this issue but nothing seem to work.
So, have some questions to clarify.

I down loaded some MP3. Some will copy to a flash drive 2gb which is
FAT, another 16gb is exFAT and copied without a hitch but some will not
from the hard disk which is NTFS

I have some 64gb flash drives and when I went from the NTFS HD to the
64gb. I lost lots of data and it corrupted even more.

If we have 2gb, 16gb, 32gb, 64gb, what is the rules? Will I have the
same issues if i go back to XP pro as I have had nothing but problems
with VISTA as My Mother is not here to "give me permission" for every
thing i want to do in Vista.

I made sure all the permissions are correct on these files and folders.
But it seems if I ignore the warning and copy, i can no longer play the
MP3 and the folders get corrupted.

Is Vista incapable of handling USB drives like flash, etc without hit
or miss?

HD which are mostly NTFS do not give a problem from HD to HD. So is it
the FAT, FAT32, etc.?

If you would not advise to format NTFS on a flash, on the 64gb or even
128gb? what would you use? All this compatibility seems to have started
with Vista.

Depending on which OS you are using exFAT may or may not be supported...

I suggest formatting the drive as Fat32 as it's going to work with most
any OS from within the last ten years
