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)

File Transfer To External Hdd

External hdd: adata nh-92 500gb
Computer: asus g51jx

I'm trying to move an iso file from my desktop to the aforementioned external hdd, but when i drag the file over to the hdd, i get a window that pops up saying that "the file is too large for the destination file system. " Is the problem really because the file is too big (7. 86 gb), or is there something that might be wrong with my computer? I think it may be because of my laptop because i got this file from my friend's external hdd, so if he could copy it on to his external, why can't i?

My old laptop using windows xp had the graphics chip go out so i cant view anything on the screen or use an external monitor. I bought a new laptop with windows 7 to replace it but i need to the transfer files from old xp laptop. I was planning on using a usb plug in device that i can plug my old hard drive into but reading microsoft windows 7 site it looks like i need to be able to view the screen on my old xp laptop to use windows easy transfer software. I was wondering what the best way would be to transfer my old hard drive into new computer without being able to view anything on the old computer.

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?

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?

Aol 9.5 Compatible?

Just upgraded to windows 7 on my 64 bit hp quad processor with 8 gig ram and 700 gigb free disk space. I've been using aol 9. 5 software which is supposed to be compatible and ran well on vista sp2. Now i get error messages regarding low memory and that view point media player isn't loaded (and won't load). After 4 sessions with aol tech support they tell me the program downloads but isn't installing correctly and that it's a windows 7 problem. Although aol doesn't show up in the uninstall feature of the control panel it does show up in program file (x86) in my computer.

It will not allow me to delete it. As it stands now, although i can obtain my email on aol, i am unable to use the browser inside aol or access my favorite list nor answer or send email. Aol also doesn't fully load and i continue to get error messages regarding low memory and the view point media player. As it stands now i am unable to even delete aol from my computer. I have been using aol thru internet explorer but the "favorites" list is corrupted and is unusable. Obviously aol isn't willing to help further. What is going on  and how can i either get the program to work or at the least uninstall and remove the aol program from my computer.

Having been a windows user since the days of 3. 1 i find that it is an increasing task every time microsoft brings out a new version of the os and windows 7 is no exception as this is not the only incompatibility. I am beginning to rethink my loyalty to microsoft.

Can microsoft offer any help or solutions ?

Is Labelflash Compatible With Win7?

Does anyone know how to work labelflash in windows 7, or which program i should be using. Labelflash, for those who don't know, is like light-scribe but far superior in quality. It is a laser image label burned right onto the disk. The problem is i can't get it to work with windows 7 even in compatibility mode.

The labelflash website provides a free program, for windows vista and lower, but only allows you to use their own images. I want to use my images to personalize my disks. It can be done because, like with my lightscribe, i have done it prior to win7. Any help on finding a program ($$ not a problem) that will allow me to continue using labelflash with win7 to create my own images and not factory supplied images on labels will be greatly appreciated.

Media Player 12 In-compatible

I recently installed windows 7 onto my laptop, upgrading from windows vista. I had windows media player 11 on vista and i understand windows media player 12 comes with windows 7. However, the first time i tried playing some music, windows media player 12 was just a desktop shortcut. The program had deleted itself some how. This would not be a problem if i could download another copy. But the two windows media packs for kn and n windows both say they are incompatible with my computer. Can anyone help? Or must i abandon my music listen on my computer?

Compatible Network Adapter

Last week i went out and bought a hp pavilion desktop model # p6203w with windows 7. We have one computer wired to our dsl and a linksys wireless g broadband router model # wrt54g. My problem is the belkin wireless adapter i bought didn't work. Call hp customer service and they told me that the belkin adapter wasn't compatible with windows 7. I took the belkin back to the store and looked at the other adapters. None of them are compatible with windows 7.

I have a toshiba satellite laptop that works fine with the router so i don't want to replace the router. What i need to know is what brand and model # adapter i need to buy to get my desktop up and running? I have checked the device manager and it offers dial up and broadband but not wireless.

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?

Dell 924 Printer Not Compatible With Win7

It says that my dell 924 printer is not compatible with windows 7. So does this mean that i either need to buy a new printer or just revert back to vista? Will they ever be compatible? Or is there something else i can do? I just upgraded to windows 7 and now my dell 924 printer won't work. I found on the website where it says that it is not compatible. Is this forever or is it just a matter of time before they will make a driver for it?
