Usb Data Transfer Slow


(win7 pro 64 on amd phenom ii x4, 3. 20 ghz with 4. 0 gb ram)i have tried changing the device settings on both sticks (different manufacturers, both 4gb) to optimize for performance and have rebooted each time. I've tried the transfer from a traditional 7200 rpm drive as well as from a 32gb ssd. Always the same. I have read all the forum post about people who are unhappy with 1. 5 mb/sec transfer rates. At this point, i'd kill for those transfer rates. The files i'm moving are a mix of large and small files and i understand that small files will transfer slower. But surely something is amiss if i can't even surpass 500kb/sec.

Usb Data Transfer Timeout With Large Files

I am experiencing a ton of problems with usb data transfer. I'm unable to transfer any large files or multiple files at once. The flash drive or external hard drive will time out and eventually the pc will "lose" it and won't be able to locate the files i was trying to transfer. In addition, i'm not able to sync up my new ipad and i'm assuming it's caused by the same issue. The odd thing is, i'm able to use my printer via usb without any problems.

I found some info on this problem (at least i'm assuming this is the same thing)

Here: http://social. Technet.microsoft.com/forums/en-us/w7itprohardware/thread/3aae3b66-6a1a-47e8-ad1b-b20b68eaecf8#79ea3219-d76e-40bc-b910-c7d347002e66

And here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/976972. When i first found out about the windows hot fix, i downloaded it and tried to install, but it said i've already installed it. Clearly it didn't work for me because i'm still having this problem. I actually started experiencing this problem with windows vista x64 and have since upgraded to windows 7.

Blue Screen When Transfer Large Amount Of Data Over Usb

Blue screen -apc_index_mismatch - trying to transfer large amount of data over usb. I am currently using windows 7 - 64 bit and whenever i try to transfer large amounts of data from my iphone or my external hard drive the system shuts down and i get the blue screen that says: apc_index_mismatch.

I just bought this computer around september 09 and it had windows vista - 64bit loaded on it. A couple of months after that i received the free upgrade to windows 7.

That is when the blue screen started to happen. At first it was happening when i was my iphone was trying to sync and transfer my music over, which made me think that the iphone was not working with windows 7. But i realized that it was the usb when i was trying to transfer some data from my external hard drive to my computer and the system crashed.

Does anyone know what is going on here?

Some more info from the blue screen:

*** Stop:  0x00000001 (0x0000000076f6040a, 0x0000000000000000, 0x000000000000ffff, 0xfffff8800820bca0)

Slow Transfer Speed To Usb 2.0 Flash Drive

I know that this topic has appeared once or twice in these forums but there haven't been any resolutions and they've been quiet lately so i started a new one. Recently, i migrated from windows xp to 7 and found this problem. When i try to copy a file (a 1. 2gb video) to a usb flash drive that i know is usb 2. 0 hi-speed (copying files to it in xp were really fast) it takes over 2 minutes. 7 reports that it is copying at 3-4 mb/sec. When i copy from the flash drive to my computer it copies at about 9-10mb/sec.

I've also tried plugging it into the rear ports but that doesn't change the transfer speed at all. I know it isn't something related to the flash stick itself because transferring files to it in xp were a lot faster. Some random information: transferring files from one hard drive to another averages at about 60mb/sec (both of the hard drives are sata ii drives).

I'm not sure what speed it should be but it doesn't feel drastically slower than on my xp machine. Windows 7 and my device drivers are all up-to-date.system specs:dell optiplex gx620 pentium 4 3. 2ghz2 gb ram windows 7 professional 32-bit avg 9 free edition anti-virus my setup is almost identical to how it was on my windows xp machine except i have less programs installed so there isn't something new that could have caused problems.

Transferring Data From Other Pc Download Via Usb Stick

New pc with win7 ultimate. Purchased outlook 2007 from microsoft and delivered via e:mail link on my other office pc that has outlook 2002 running my e: mail, downloaded direct to a new 4 gig usb stick and copied to the new win7 pc via this stick, when trying to extract the program, the process starts but very quickly windows 7 reports an error basically saying not enough memory to complete the task.

This is the first s/w package put on this pc, it remains basically the way it was delivered. Has 1t/byte raid 1 drives with 12 g/byte memory. Cant seem to be able to contact microsoft or the s/w provider (digital river) to see if the s/w packaged is faulty or corrupted.

Data Copying Fails, Usb Disks Keep Getting Restarted

We bought a new hp probook 4520s with windows 7 professional. From the very beginning we have been experiencing problems with usb devices. Our usb flash disks and an external westerndigital usb device (harddisk) often get restarted in windows 7, and errors reported on them, although all of them work properly on any windows xp system (computer) we try.copying to and from those disks often is interrupted and fails. An usb modem has not always functioned, either.

We reinstalled windows 7 - it did not help. The seller checked the hardware and found no problems. They say their usb devices work fine with this computer. In fact, sometimes it seems that our usb devices also work fine with it - however, this does not last long. Usb disks usually get restarted when data copying is just underway. Viruses, malware, etc, have been checked - nothing found. Autorun files turned into txt files - it has not helped, either.

Win 7 Halts When Transferring Data From Usb Device To Computer

This issue has to do with erratic performance in windows 7 when transferring data from as usb device to the computer. It does not present itself when transferring data to as usb device from the computer. When transferring data from as usb device to the computer (ie downloading pictures to the computer from a memory card), windows 7 will not allow programs to be launched and it eventually grinds to a halt on any existing programs. Performance returns if the data transfer is canceled or allowed to complete.

The data transfer will almost always complete if not canceled. This is a problem when there is a large amount of data to transfer as the computer is not usable until the data transfer is complete. Not something i expect from a brand new computer.

I have tried several different usb devices with the same result so i know it is not the device itself. Hp tech support had me run a diagnostic on my motherboard and everything checked out ok.
The computer is a hp e9300z with amd athlon ii x4 630 processor and 6 gb memory. It has a foxconn motherboard with american megatrends bios.microsoft reports a known issue similar to this in article kb976972. I tried this but it did not fix the problem.

Usb Transfer Cable Old Xp To New Win 7

Someone very nice just bought and gave me a brand new gaming computer. He bought me a new hard drive. I have my old computer with two hard drives running windows xp. 1st hard drive has all my game settings and links from desktop icon to the 2nd hard drive, which i use to store about 100 games.

I simply need to transfer everything. It would take me weeks to load all 100 of those games with their patches, downloads, ect. So i bought a usb transfer cable for 15 bucks. I get home and first thing it says is "start both computers"

I do have two power cords, but i only have one keyboard, mouse, and monitor. Can i hook up the usb cord between the two, plug both power cords in, and just keep switching my mouse, keyboard, and monitor back and forth to do the process? I'm assuming once the transfer begins i wont be using them.

My new computer has a 500gb hard drive. My old one used and 12 gb c:drive and 80gb d: slave. Will it read both and just dump everything from both hard drives into the new one?  What about files that have the same name?  Will it combine them?

I've just spent about 90mins reading and searching through many sites and posts. None seem to have anyone similar to my situation, which i found strange. Does everyone buy a new mouse, keyboard, and monitor. :-)

Usb External Hdd File Transfer Stops

I have a dell xps m1530 laptop. I upgraded to w7 pro 32 bit via a clean install from vista home premium. My external usb  hdd (freecom toughdrive pro 320gb) used to work fine, and still does on other computers, including xp, vista and another w7 desktop machine. On my upgraded laptopi get problems transferring large files from the usb drive, the drive light goes out (but i can still hear it whirring), the copy operation hangs, and i can no longer browse through the drive in windows explorer. Bizarrely the drive still shows up in "safely remove hardware".

It also shows up still in device manager, with no warning symbols next to any device. I've tried seeing if the drive shows up in disk management, but that won't start unless i unplug it. My problem seems similar to the well documented problem with external drives on w7 64bit and nvidia chipsets with over 4gb ram. That issue has a hotfix. My system is 32bit though. I tried the hotfix just in case but to no effect. Any ideas microsoft?

Slow File Transfers Between Sata, Usb, Firewire

While testing out this new install i am getting very strange drive speed results. A 2gb test directory full of photos will copy in a blazing 10 seconds. Yes, that is cool i say to myself. So i delete the target and try again, where it then takes a minute or maybe even three. Then when it finally gets transferred and i delete the directory, even the delete takes forever.

Then if i try to do other stuff the system will eventually lock up, and about 2 minutes later it will unfreeze and deliver the flood of folders i tried to open in the interim. Looking at task manager i see an enormous number of explorer.exe page fault delta when the slowdown occurs.

It does not seem to matter what type of drive it is. I have checked and everything is current for drivers and updates. Also note, this has nothing to do with the networking (all local drives). I haven't any clues save for perhaps a memory timing problem, but i think i bought some decent memory, and there is plenty of it. The task manager shows very low memory use and no swapping problem. Nothing else is running during my tests. Any ideas?

My system is: win7 on an i7 2. 8 ghz processor on a p6t se asus mb with 12gb corsair ddr3 memory (6x2). 4 identical wd velocirator hard drives set to sata ide emulation.nvidia gtx 470 vid card. Everything set to "auto" (no overclocking/overvoltage). Thanks in advance for any ideas :)

Adding Data Hdd

I have just installed windows 7 ultimate 64 bit on a new hdd - the installation went perfectly. I now want to add another hdd (internal), to use as a data drive. I have been using this drive to store all my data from another installation of windows 7 (32 bit). Whilst i can see all the folders, when i attempt to open some folders (but not all) to access files i receive a message saying i don't have permission. I am the only person using the computer, i.e. I have no additional profiles or anything.

How can i fully access this data drive, with full read/write capability? I will also want to use the same drive when i use it with my windows 7 32 bit installation too. I imagine it is something to do with granting permissions or sharing, but i'm not sure what. Any suggestions?

What Is Data Execution Prevention Program ?

Data execution prevention can help protect your computer by monitoring your programs to make sure that they use system memory safely. If dep notices a program on your computer using memory incorrectly, it closes the program and notifies you. I have done everything i was told to do to fix this problem and i still keep getting this message. It always says, "internet explorer has stopped working. I don't know what to do.

What is data execution prevention?
 
Data execution prevention (dep) is a security feature that can help prevent damage to your computer from viruses and other security threats. Harmful programs can try to attack windows by attempting to run (also known as execute) code from system memory locations reserved for windows and other authorized programs. These types of attacks can harm your programs and files.

Dep can help protect your computer by monitoring your programs to make sure that they use system memory safely. If dep notices a program on your computer using memory incorrectly, it closes the program and notifies you.

Restore Application Data Shortcut

I have to admit i did this one to myself.

On the user profile (c:users
Ame) if you turn off the "hide protected operating system files" setting, it displays a number of "shortcuts". If these have been deleted, are there any way to restore them. It seems they are not really shortcuts but junctions.

What happens if i install a program that is still looking for the %application data% variable, it will create a directory on c:users
Ameapplication data instead of placing it on c:users

Any help will be greatly appreciated to save me from myself.

Data Execution Protection Crashes

I was having a problem with repetitive data execution protection crashes when i accessed certain pages - particularly when trying to read my optimum email with a browser. This occurred with both ie 8 and firefox. The last straw was when i tried to renew my subscription for my trend micro internet security. Their app for renewing a subscription automatically started ie 8, which would then trigger a "internet explorer has stopped working . Checking for a solution" window, followed by a "close program" window, followed by a message that data execution protection had been the cause of the stoppage.

However, ie 8 does not close - it just triggers another succession of "checking for a solution, " "close program, " "dep was the cause" messages until i manage to get ie8 to respond to its own close button (the red x in the urh corner). Based on another posting, i started ie 8 as administrator and turned off the dep function - now when i try to renew my subscription, i get a rapid series of "checking for a solution" and "close program" windows, but no dep message. I finally had to renew my subscription by telephone! What can be done to fix this?

App Data Folder Have 97gb

Why does app data folder have 97gb? My brand new computer (running windows 7 professional) shows that i have used 272gb. My user name accounts for 192 gb. My music takes up 95gb, but i could not figure out what else could be chewing up a lot of space. When i got to the folders within my user name, i see an app data folder that says it has 97gb. Are there really 97gb in there, or is that pretty much a mirror of my music and other files i have?  If not, where are the 95gb that i can't account for?

I have looked at all other folders under my user name, but don't see any others that have even 1 gb in them. I am guessing it must be a duplication of my music somewhere, but i cannot find it. I would really like to free up that disk space.

Win 7 Is Deleting Data Files

I have a program called password administrator (http://www.Digiquirk.com/) that i keep all my passwords in. It uses an encrypted database located in the program filespassword administrator directory. Upon trying to open it this morning i was unable to log into the database. The database name showed as normal at the started of the program. When i canceled the log in dialog and tried to reopen, i was greeted with a create new database dialog. Now i might suspect the program, but this is the second time this has happened and my backups are also deleted from the program filespassword administratorackups directory.

I've been using this program on xp for years and never had an issue. I've tried to recover using previous version, but they don't exist. I've checked windows defender and avira logs, but nothing. I'm trying to run recuva now, but am probably going to have to go back to a backup from last month.

Any help would be appreciated as this will cause me to go back to xp if no resolution is found.

Select More Than One Lines Of Data From Different Place Of Page

In windows 7 can we select more than one lines of data which are in different place of the page (not continues lines) through mouse or keyboard and also can we copy all those different lines at a time to paste some other place in a single shot.

- Right now i am unable to select more number of lines which are not in a sequence in a single page to copy those lines of data and paste some where in a single shot.

- Is this concept implemented in the windows 7?

- Is there any provision (method) to select multiple lines which are not continues through keyboard or mouse in windows-7?

Please pass this to someone who can solve this problem, or tell me how i can remove data execution prevention from my computer. I have plenty of alternate protection through symantecs norton software.
