I've tried doing this in the past, and found that it's very hit or miss whether a particular combination of distro and stick will work as expected.
Can be pot-luck and getting worse as all now tend to be TLC.
If one don't work,try a different brand.
Another option-SD card-their quality seems more consistent (Samsung and Sandisk)
Small tip-Buy from the people that make the nand-they're more likely to keep the better
stuff for themselves, and flog off the lower quality nand to others.......................
