Copying Files To A Usb Drive Stops

I have a windows 7 (home premium 64 bit) laptop and two usb drives (one 16gb kingston data traveler and another 4 gb cruzer). I also have an xp laptop. On the xp laptop i can use both the usb drives to copy files of any size. Both are partitioned ntfs.

But on the win 7 laptop only the 4gb cruzer is working without a problem. Whenever i try to copy a file to this 16gb drive from the win 7 the copying starts of without a problem but stops somewhere in between. It does not proceed after wards. I tried a number of solutions including a hot fix suggested in this forum and still having the same problem. If i am copying a very small file (few mbs) it can finish copying without any problem.

File Error Copying Vob Files To Drive

I have been trying to copy a few . Vob files from a non-copyrighted dvd to my hard drive and keep running in to the same problem. After the transfer is complete, it looks like the full file is there but it shows that the clip length is only :13 seconds rather than the 35mins of the original file. Sure enough when i try to watch it, the clip appears corrupted, jumping around before ultimately freezing. Is this an error in the transfer, of the original dvd or something in 7 i just don't know about. I've only been using 7 for a few months and this is the first time i've tried to transfer vob files on this particular laptop.

Can't Eject Usb Hard Drive, Drive Always In Use

I have a 500gb maxtor onetouch 4 external usb backup drive that is set to do weekly backups with windows backup. This works great except that everything and their grandmother wants to spin the hard drive up whenever possible. This is not an ideal situation: with exception to backup, this drive is not used for anything. So i had a great idea, i'll keep the drive unmounted until i need to backup which then a newly created scheduled task would mount, backup and unmount when done! Well, turns out, windows doesn't think so. And this makes me a sad panda.

Explorer Stop When Copying Files

Windows explorer (and some parts of windows itself -_-) grinds to a stop when copying files from my computer's hard drive to an external hard drive. I am currently using windows 7 enterprise k (x86)

This is a problem i've been seeing from windows xp through windows 7. When i try to copy some files from my computer to my external hard drive windows explorer starts copying the file, then suddenly just stops.

I've seen a lot of programs crash on my computer, and i usually just press ctrl+shift+esc (sorry, i don't know what z‘—'¦¬z is called in english oss) and kill the process that crashed.

But when i try to kill explorer.exe:

1. It won't die. i.e. It's still in the process list, and i can still see the window that crashed
Even if i kill the mother explorer.exe (not just the one that shows me the window, the one that shows me the taskbar and desktop etc. ) The taskbar disappears, but when i start it up again the explorer.exe that crashed is still there.

2. It stays there forever. I've tried ignoring it all day long, and it's still there.

3. Windows becomes very buggy. After explorer.exe crashes, a lot more bugs that wern't there spring up, although i don't remember exactly what. I seem to remember that there were a lot more of those in windows xp than windows 7.

4. Windows doesn't even shutdown. I try pressing shutdown in the start-menu and it either takes forever to understand i wanted it to shutdown, or sometimes ignores me completely. I've also tried entering "shutdown /s" in cmd.exe and it does shutdown, only to get stuck on logging off.
Same with just pressing logging off, too.

And every time this happens, if i force-shutdown and try the same file again, it won't work that time either. Sometimes copying the file to the root of my external hard drive and moving it to the directory i originally wanted to copy it to works, but not always.

This is very, very irritating and i wish there was a way to fix it. I am also posting this question in the korean forum. Ps. I saw a answer to a similar question on the korean forum, and it told the questioner to update to vista sp1 or 2. I've been installing every update (except the optional ones) on my computer and i'm sure thats not the problem.

Issue Copying Files Between Hard Disks

I am experiencing issues copying files between hard drives on my computer. I've been having this problem on windows 7, and windows vista, but have never encountered it on xp. It seems there are several similar threads, but i think i've noticed a few quirks in my own experience. I have several drives, between 500 gb ~ 1 tb. Problems arise when i try to copy a folder with a large number of files (typically pictures, folders around 4gb in size).initially, the transfer rate would be at the hd's burst speed, somewhere between 90mb to 150mb.

Speed would decrease to around 30mb, or even lower. The transfer eventually becomes so slow that the operation would take hours to finish. If i try to cancel, it would take minutes to do so. The computer would perform sluggishly for a long period afterward, with intermittent lag until i reboot the system. This occurs regardless of the source and destination drives. On certain samsung drives, this problem actually lead to data corruption on both the source and destination drives, and i/o error messages. Chkdsk will run at startup, attempt to fix the problem, but the data would be lost or the drive unreadable. I've since tossed the samsung drives for wd, have not had i/o errors, but the file copying problem persists. I've also disabled chkdsk at startup for all drives. My hardware drivers and bios are up to date.computer is free of viruses and malware.

I have no other troubles with windows 7. Curiously, if i compress my folders/files to a single rar file, i do not have problems copying them (transfer rate stays steady at 30~50mb). This leads me to believe that this is not a hardware issue, but a problem with explorer, and that it pertains specifically with the number of files being transferred rather than size. (But unpacking those files also lead to poor performance sometimes. )Is this a known issue that will be fixed?  I really like win7, but because i work with large number of files and numerous backups all the time, stability during file copying is a must. I may have to revert to xp, or use another os entirely.

Not Enough Disc Space To Temporarily Store Files

When starting the upgrade process from vista to 7 home premium and 27 gb free on hard drive i'm told that there isn't enough free space to temporarily store windows files. I delete another 10 gb- same message. Clear it out up to 45, then 50 gb of free space (its only a 100 gb drive) same message. Finally end up deleting everything i'm allowed to, up to 62 gb free space now- same message. Shut down, reboot, same message. My itunes is gone- everything is off it- same message.

Code 32 - Disc Drive Problem

I just entered a cd into my disc drive and noticed nothing was happening. So i went to manually click on the disc drive itself, and saw that it was completely gone. When going through the troubleshooting process in windows 7, this note came up:

A driver (service) for this device has been disabled. An alternate driver may be providing this functionality. (Code 32). Obviously i need to re-enable this service, but i am clueless as to which one or how to do so.

Recover Disc Image From Sata Drive

I just purchased a new laptop. Spent all last weekend upgrading the os to win7 pro; reinstalling all my apps; and transferring all my data. Done! I then discovered one of the usb ports didn't work.

I used the windows disk image utility. I successfully created the images on an external esata drive.
When i tried to run the windows restore utility on the new machine, it didn't recognize any available images. (The esata drive appears ok in windows explorer.

Message - No Disc In Drive - Can't Burn Picture Cd

I selected about 40 pictures from a gallery folder to burn to disc. I get a window that opens and says "files waiting to be burned to disc" followed by a list of the selected image files. I click 'burn to disc', and am prompted to put an empty disc into the cd-rom drive. After i do, and after closing the drive door, i get a 'checking disc' msg. In the window. In a few seconds the drive door opens, and i see this message: "there is no disc in the cd or dvd burner".

"Please insert a writable disc into the d drive". This drive plays discs fine, and i had no problems burning when i used vista, but after a hd crash, i upgraded to win7 and this is my first attempt at making a disc. Is there some compatibility issue here?. Device mgr. Says the device is working. The driver is up to date.

Error - Insert A Recordable Disc - Dvd Drive Does Not Work

Op: dvd drive does not work right with windows 7 with digital photos i have taken, i want to be able to do a slide show on a dvd that can be watched on tv. Any dvd that i put in, i get the message, "insert a recordable disc". All i can figure out is that maybe it has to do with the cd/dvd drive. I have a hp computer with a atapi dvd a dh16aal ata. The computer came new with windows vista already installed, then we were able to upgrade to 7 which we did.

Asus G73 Drive Does Not Recognize Blu Ray Disc

Recently got a new laptop - asus g73 with blu ray/windows 7 64 bit pro/comes with powerdvd 9
When i put a dvd in the drive, everything works fine.

When i put a blu ray disc in the drive - windows does not recognize that there is a disc in the drive (i.e. No auto-play, no disc recognized in windows explorer). Also, the powerdvd9 software also does not recognize there is a disc inserted. When i first opened the powerdvd program, it asked me to setup the correct region codes, and i've also setup the correct country in windows. The model of my blu ray drive is "matshita bd-cmb uj141as".

You Cannot Eject Your Computer Because Devices In Docking Station

You cannot eject your computer because one of the devices in the docking station, 'ecp printer port (lpt1)' i'm running a dell latitude d830 and use a d-series docking station. When i try to eject my laptop using either the undock button on top of the docking station, or the eject hardware option in the windows 7 taskbar, i get a warning message saying "you cannot eject your computer because one of the devices in the docking station, 'ecp printer port (lpt1)', cannot be stopped because a program is still accessing it. "

However, i do not have anything connecting to the parallel port of the docking station, and this happens when all programs are closed! The only support i can find on this from microsoft is http://support.microsoft.com/?Kbid=842058 but that says its a windows xp issue, and the latest service pack fixes the problem. Which it might do, but it looks like it has been re-introduced in windows 7!

Usb Takes Long Time To Eject

I upgraded to windows 7 over thanksgiving with no problems. However, recently i discovered that when i clicked on the "safely eject" icon on the taskbar to eject my usb drive, it takes over 1 min for the menu to pop up. I restarted my computer in safe mode and tried ejecting my usb, which worked fine with no lag. I don't know what happened that suddenly made ejecting so slow now. I haven't installed any new software since i upgraded, and this is definitely a recent issue. Does anyone have an idea how to fix this?

Problem Copying A Large Folder To Dvd

I'm using a drag and copy of a large folder (~3gb) onto an external usb dvd. The folder contains sub-folders of miscellaneous data (photos etc). If i select and copy say the 10 sub folders (at once) then no problem. If these same folders live under a single higher folder then the copy gets half way through then everything stalls and i need to hard boot the computer. I have the following useful relevant updates installed kb975617 and kb976972 installed. Any suggestions? By the way. If you are experiencing painfully slow dvd file burning look at kb975617 (issue 3)

Swap Hard Drives After Copying Win 7 To Another Hdd

I installed windows 7 on my 1st 1 tb hard disk. I partitioned it after wards and could not get the c partition smaller than 1/2 tb (because files are blocking it at that point) with the remainder 1/2 tb calling itself e, which i can not change to d? Is it possible to copy windows 7 on to my second 1 tb hard disk from the first (which i will partition beforehand to 50 gb and 950 gb, which i prefer) and then after that swapping the 2 hard disks internally?
