99% of the "kingston 64gb" drives you will find in the "chinese market" are counterfeit and contain only a few MB of real memory. The memory controller has been reprogrammed to show a size of 64 GB. When you write data to the drive it just over-writes the same few bytes of memory. I suggest you return the drive and stop looking for cheap memory.

Good Luck
