    Based on the positive experiences here regarding the Kingston Traveler USB drive, and the many disappointments I have had trying so many drives that have failed to work, I went ahead and purchased a Kingston Traveler that arrived to day. I am SO happy to report – IT WORKS – I can concur these drives work with the QU series mixers.
    The last drive I purchased was a refurbished Sandisk Extreme 3.0 (old stock) because they changed something in the new ones and they do NOT work. I have been using 3 old style Sandisk Extremes over and over and they have always been good but I had started to think my only option going forward was refurbished till they would at some point literally run out and I’d be stuck. I have tried dozens of drives with very little success.
    The refurbished one cost me over $20. This Kingston just cost me $6.99 and I am SO happy – thanks to those here who shared this info….I will be ordering a bunch more.

    I hope @debzdoodle meant the one with the circle in the handle like the AH picture shows.

    There are way too many drives with the same name but different model and submodel ID as well as size that affect where they were made and how good they are.

    This looks the same but no AH logo on it

    interesting. looks like SE9 is the one we want to try.
    it is compatible with win 10 8/8.1 7sp1 but not vista nor xp
    also linux v2.6x+

    I wonder what did windoze do after vista to cause backwards compatibility problems

    I hope @debzdoodle will come back and post a link andor verify the exact model she got that worked.

    It looks like we are getting a close out as there are new ones that look similar that are to be released real soon and can be preordered.

    The question is will the new ones work or do we need to grab the older ones while they still have them.

    If @mikec is correct then there may be no problem with the newest release of them.

    Thanks. That is the SE9G2 model shown in the link.

    I see kingston is having a new G3 maybe G4 model listed at other sites.
    I wonder if they would be the identical manufacture or if they made changes somehow.

    I’d be careful of any subsequent models until tested. That is what happened with the Sandisk Extreme. A lot of people bought the current model assuming it would work as well as the first and it didn’t. That is why I was stuck with buying referred units.
    I’m playing it safe and keeping to the one I know works. I just ordered 4 more.

    Roger that!

    I am going to order a few to have backups handy.

    I tried many sandisks including extreme types and they all failed.
