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)

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.

Cannot Copy / Paste Large Files From Usb

I tried drag and drop. I tried ctrl+c & ctrl+v. Neither work when trying to move a large folder (7-8gb) from my usb to my hard drive. I feel like i am the only one having this bug. It works with smaller files from my usb to my hard drive - even up to a couple gigs only took a couple minutes.
Update:  xp says "cannot copy file. Cannot read from the source file or disk. " So this is an issue with the usb.

Losing Usb Drives / Devices When Working With Large Files

I keep losing my usb drives/devices when working with large/many files. Have to reboot to get drives back. Anytime i try to move a large number of files, or work with a large file (such as transferring to memory stick) my usb drives stop working. They still show up in explorer, but all file contents are gone. I have tried to use different ports, as far as i can tell all drivers are up to date. I have a dual boot to windows xp and in xp there is no problem with this. In xp i can move large and large numbers of files usb to usb with no problems whatsoever, but in win7 it just won't work.

Anyone else having this problem or heard of a fix for this problem? It does tend to get a little frustrating. Devices affected: wd mybook & essential usb hd's, usb memory stick, usb headset/mic, usb card reader, usb camera. Use of any of these with files larger than a few hundred mb results in freeze/lose device.

Sir i am facing this problem from many years and after a lot of search and efforts i am asking for your help to sort out the issue.

Cannot Copy Large File Between Usb Drives

Using windows 7. Have two 1tb ntfs drives and i'm trying to copy a 600g music folder from drive g to drive e. Original file from a third drive was put trough a tag editor and saved to drive g successfully. Have tried copy/paste, drag and drop and send to options. The drag and select show 13k items selected but when released over the intended folder, the copy files window pops up then disappears. Trying break into smaller transfers, was able to transfer half the "a"'s (716 folders) then was only able to transfer single folders.

There are some files where the location was lost in the renaming process or folders that got duplicated which show up as conflicts or options to skip copy or merge two folders in the file copy process at the end of the transfer. I am able to transfer files between the drives, just not this large folder. Western digital support says it's an operating system issue. I acquired the original files from four separate drives  by drag and drop recently with no issues. In compiling all the folders, maybe some errors have crept in, but i can't figure out how to find and eliminate them.

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.

I am running:

Using Backup To Transfer Files

I have been using xp's backup/restore to keep two computers in different locations in synch. I backup all my data on computer 1 and restore it to computer 2, choosing to restore only if the files on computer 2 are older.

I'm about to buy windows 7. I understand that its backup does incremental backups, not full ones. This won't work for me, because i may have changed a file on computer 1 several days ago and done backups since then, so, as i understand it, the file won't be backed up if i haven't changed it since.

Is there a way to do full rather then incremental backups? If not, i'd welcome suggestions for ways to keep the two computers in synch.copying all the files on computer 1 and then copying them to computer 2 seems inelegant to say the least.

Transfer Of Oe Files From Xp Machine

I have transferred my files to win 7's windows live mail e-mail program, but it has not (cannot?) Transfer the contact groups or the message subfolder arrangements. Is there a way to do this? Other queries on this forum have suggested helpful methods (and thank you, all), but they involve a lot of manual steps. If windows live mail won't do this formatting automatically, or nearly so, , is there another e-mail program i can use to accommodate my oe formatting?

Transfer Xp Files Over Other Drive With Win7

Can i have a drive with windows 7 on it and another with windows xp and then transfer xp files over? I tried to upgrade to windows xp sp3 and it messed my system up really bad. Can't get out of safe mode. After several days of trying i finally decided to just go buy windows 7 and a tb+ hard drive.
I currently have two drives. I plan to remove one, stick in the terabyte sized drive, format it and put windows 7 on it.

My questions are: 1. Will i then be able to transfer files from my previous primary drive to this new one running windows 7 if the old primary drive has windows xp on it? Question 2? Will the old primary drive automatically become windows 7 thereby messing up all its files?

External Hard Drive Files Transfer Problem

I just got a new pc with windows 7. Our old pc had windows xp. I have a 20gb external hard drive on which i keep all of our music and photos. Never had a problem with it on old pc. I have the bible, new testament on cd. I ripped using windows media player so i could transfer to my music player but all of it will not fit on my player at one time. I planned to transfer it all to my external drive so i would not have to rip cds each time i wanted to change out what i was listening to on my player.

When i hook up the external drive directly to a usb port on the pc, i get the message that installation of driver has failed and the device cannot be read. (Weird!) However, when i hook up the external drive through the usb hub, i can view everything within the external drive no problem whatsoever. I can even view all of my photos. From there, i open up the music file from the start menu and drag one of the bible files over to a new folder within the external drive.

After a minuet or so, the light on my external drive will turn from green to red and i get the message: this is no longer located in j:new christian version (this is the new folder within the external drive that i am attempting to transfer to) verify the item's location and try again

Of course the item is not located in j drive. I am trying to send that item there to begin with! I have tried this many, many times and was successful with only one bible file, picked at random. Why it was accepted, and copied successfully, i do not know. I'd be grateful for any help with this or suggestions. I was wondering if i downloaded windows media player 11 (which i think is what i had on old pc) & ripped the cds that way, if that might work. Or would it even be worth the hassle?

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.

Easy File Transfer Won't Open Files

I installed win 7 and ran easy file transfer and tried to get the files off the jump drive and it tells me easy transfer can't open the files. Also, i have a clone of my win xp on another hd can i use win 7 easy file transfer to get the files directly off that hd? If so, how? I don't see an option for that in easy transfer.

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. :-)

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.
