USB Keys not recognized when they become full

So every time I'm copying files to any of my USB drives and I run out of space the computer freezes up a bit then tells me it can no longer find the USB drive. The device still shows up under Computer in the removable devices section but I cannot access it. Removing it and reinserting it does nothing. I need to reboot to fix it...any ideas?
