Lexar recalls JumpDrive FireFly and 1GB Secure II flash drives

Lexar is in the news today, but probably not for a reason that they were hoping for. The company had to issue a recall on its JumpDrive FireFly and JumpDrive Secure II 1GB high-speed flash drives.

The devices are being recalled due to possible issues with overheating which could lead to burns and property damage. The recall affects around 66,000 units that were sold between April and May of 2006. Consumers are urged to immediately stop using the devices and contact Lexar (via the web or by phone, (800) 248-2798) for replacement products.

Here is a listing of the products affected by the recall:

What if?

Lets say for a second that I had purchased a defective jumpdrive which had in turn damaged my pc's case, or my motherboard. Can anyone say if Lexar would have offered to replace the damaged components? or would I have been left out in the cold for the collateral damage? just wondering.

If you're in the US, file a small claims suit for the damages, if they don't offer to replace it. usually, companies don't defend small claims suits, which are typically under $1k. It'd be the easiest way to do it. You can sue for the whole amount of the item, plus the costs of filing the suit, so you would only lose time.

Hot iPod

When I plug my wife's iPod Shuffle in to charge, it gets very hot, although not serious burn hot.

It's only an issue on my Linux box, though. I wonder if the USB drivers on the Linux box just send too much juice across the connection?
