It’s to do with how larger size flash drives are created. My understanding is that the memory chips they use tend to come in smaller sizes, I think up to 16GB. To create larger capacity flash drives they “bridge” two or more of the smaller chips together rather than spending more money on larger ones.

PC and Mac operating systems are fine with this, but Linux (which is what the GLD runs on) can’t read it properly unless the whole drive is made up of one chip.
