Explorer Crashes When Copying From Usb


I cannot copy files from a usb flash drive or my digital camera with windows explorer. I am running windows 7 professional. Both copy & paste and drag & drop cause explorer to crash. "Windows explorer has stopped working" is displayed and the details say:

  Application name:    explorer.exe
  Application version:    6. 1. 7600. 16450

It is very frustrating - i can't clean off my digital camera or even put them on a flash drive and drop them on my pc. Has anyone experienced this? Did i accidentally change a setting or registry value or something?

Usb Thumb Drive Crashes Explorer

I have a usb thumb drive that i use to store lotus notes mail id's on as a backup protocol. The usb drive has been functioning on my machine for over a year until recently. I connect my thumb drive in and attempt to browse the contents through windows explorer. As soon as i click the drive, the window freezes. The only way to unfreeze the machine is to kill explorer.exe and restart the process or just simply pull the thumb drive out. I've attempted to assign the device a new drive letter through cpu management but the shell ultimately freezes when the drive is inserted.

The drive works fine in multiple other machines. I've tested the drive in multiple usb ports on the affected pc and still the same issue. I've tested with other thumb drives on my machine and they work flawlessly. I ended up backing all the media up on another machine and tried reformatting the usb drive to fat32. The thumb drive still crashes windows explorer.
 
Does anyone have any other ideas where to go?

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.

File Crashes Explorer

A file i have been downloading for a game via bittorent (legal mod for a game) that i was re downloaded to play with friends has been giving me some trouble. It started with bittorrent locking up when trying to check the files after i re started it, so i thought it was the program and uninstalled it and went to delete the 2 files i was downloading. When i try to delete the files it would bring up the recycle task bar and start locking up my computer and eventually crash explorer, even after that i can hear my hard drive making noise so i ran virus scans (avg), hijack this, ccleaner, seagates hard driver check (to see if it was dieing).

And nothing came up. I know have the two files sitting there and if i do anything to them, try to move them, right click them, etc explorer will freeze and crash. And even after it comes back on i can hear my hard drive accessing data or trying to do something. So my best guess is the files got corrupt during the download when i stopped the download and for some reason wont allow me to touch them. Any ideas?

Windows Explorer Continually Crashes

Windows explorer continually crashes. Program menu icons are non-functional. Desktop icons are blank white squares. Upgraded from vista business to win 7 professional (32-bit). Updated video driver and bios. Desktop goes blank if i right-click and "refresh". Programs will only run if i know the executable filename and use "run. "

Hardware is lenovo t60p notebook with 3 gb ram. Ati radeon firegl 5250 card, for which there is no windows 7 driver available, so i ran latest driver after using "compatibility checker", which applied xp service pack 2 settings to it. Have tried various other video drivers to no avail. Any workaround? Wrote to lenovo and ati. Notebook is barely 2 years old. There are win 7 drivers for older and lesser radeon firegl cards.

And i have to use the task manager to terminate the explorer.exe process and start a new one to get it function again. I wondered if anyone can tell me what the problem is and how to fix it.

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.

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.

Usb Crashes Win 7 With Black Screen

I installed windows 7 two months on my dell inspiron 530 computer. I bought it two years ago. Yesterday my wife plugged in a external usb driver and play some videos and then went to another room for a while. When she came back and the screen was black and every thing is frozen. She unplug the usb and press the power button for several seconds to restart it and could not start it. I think it can start it if i plug the usb again, but it still black. The only thing is the noise sound by cpu fan. I could not see the screen and even i could not re-load the windows 7. Can you tell me how to solve this problem?

Usb Fails / Disappears From Explorer And Cannot Be Reconnected

I have just installed the formal release, having played with the release candidate for several months. I had, and still have a problem with usb. When trying to copy to a usb disk, the system hangs after a very short time. The usb device in question disappears from windows explorer and cannot be reconnected. Switching to a different usb port results in the system failing to load a driver for the device saying it is not recognized.

The only option is a close down and reboot. As well as usb disks, i have this problem with an archos mp4 and an ipod. It makes the system quite unusable i'm afraid. I'm running on an intel quad system and apart from the above, and a missing co-processor driver, everything seems ok.

Usb Flash Drive Hidden In Explorer

I can see my f: drive in my admin account; but when i switch to mys daily user account -  any usb flash drive plugged in is invisible - if i manually type f: into the path box - it lists the drive contents just fine.

I've used admin, comp management, disks and the drive shows up as f: without any problems, if i re-name it to x: it then shows up in explorer; but swap it for another usb flash drive and its again invisible. Switch to admin account and its plainly visible. I had a look with tune-up utilities and the 'customizable drive displays' option for f: is ticked. I can hide and display other drives this way; but f: never appears.

Note i have a card reader, so drives g: h: k: are also always visible; dvd drive is e: and i have 2 hard drives c: & d: plus a hidden recovery drive, i can rename that to x: and it shows and hides - but still no f: drive. Where is the 'display / hide drives' option in win 7. I used to be able to do this in tweak ui on xp; biy do we miss that utility.

Wav Files On Usb Device Crash Explorer

As a musician, i often have to copy large wav files from external devices. As soon as i upgraded to windows 7, browsing external usb storage devices containing wav files started crashing explorer. I can't perform any file operation on a wav file in such a device without getting "not responding" errors. The only workaround is to copy the files onto a machine running xp, and then send them over the network to my windows 7 machine. This takes too long and isn't acceptable. Is there something obvious i'm missing?

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)

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.

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?

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.

Youtube video crashes in windows 7 32-bit or 64-bit, using flash player 9 or 10, videos play in chrome just fine. I have 1gb ati 5770 vapor video card, intel system board, i5, 4 gb ram. I have tried both windows 7 64 and 32 bit to no avail. The screen flickers and system reboots.

Display Driver Crashes

I use a 6 months old xps dell 8000 with windows 7, 64 bit, with an nvidia geoforce gt220 video card. 1 or 2 times a day the monitor goes black and then restores with a message "display driver has stopped responding and recovered. Display driver nvidia windows kernel mode driver ?" This continues to happen for no reason, even though dell has replaced my video card 3 times. With dell customer service help i uninstalled and reinstalled the current drivers from the dell site previous drivers downloaded from the  nvidia site caused other problems which have been resolved. I would appreciate any guidance in resolving this issue which neither dell or nvidia want to claim as their fault.

Win 7 Crashes After Any Update

Ok, so i put w7 disc in computer, restart it for booting and installing and there in loading shows blue screen. Then i tried to restart computer again, this time success. Everything looks fine now, i can restart computer and do almost everything, all is working fine. Then i discovered that when i make some automatic update (even sound driver and/or security updates) after restart it crashes, loads the loading picture, screen is starting to be blank, mouse appears on screen and then suddenly it restarts. After restart it gives 2 choices between to run repair computer or start windows normal.

If i choose start windows normal effect is the same - restart before desktop should appear. If i choose repair computer it is scanning something, then when it's done computer need to be restarted, and windows still doesn't work - makes restart before desktop should appear. If i try to repair again, it says that it don't know how to repair it, do i want to send info to ms. I send it from safe mod, because am' on router.
