Very Slow Usb Transfer / Detection


I have asus m3n78-vm mobo and it has some problems in it. I think my usb ports are not running as fast as they can. When starting windows it takes ages to detect my external hdd , buffalo drivestation 500gb usb 2, and transferring like 300 mb file from internal hdd to that external is pain in the ass slow. Transferring from external to internal it has no problems. Files fly from buffalo to my internal sata hdd. But if i try to move file from that internal hdd to external buffalo, windows says it takes about 10 minutes to transfer one 300 mb file and it does also take that long, so what a heck? Im confused. I checked bios and all usb 2 features are on in bios. I also had some weird io shutdown problems. Anyone has any solutions to this? My buffalo also has some turbousb feature but dunno if it works. Oh and i use 32 bit xp pro with sp3 in it. Btw my old mobo dfi lanpary nf3 ultra-d did not have this problem with my external hdds. I have also tried all usb ports, and its the same problem.

Transfer Speed On Usb Is Very Slow - Seagate 160 Gb Hd

I am having couple of problems with my trasnfer speed. I just bought a new enclosure case for my seagate 160gb hd. I am finding the transfer speed is very slow compared to anthoer enclosure case i have containing 20gb hd. My pc has usb 2. 0. On my old case, i get a speed of about 23 mb/sec majority of times. My new case is only giving me about 15 mb/sec. What can i do and how do i make it faster? I even exchanged the two hd to see if it is the hd that is causing it to be slow, but i found out it is the enclourse case. When i put the 160gb hd in the old case, it transfers at 23 mb/sec.

Difference In Transfer Rate From Usb To Usb And Hdd To Usb

I have an seagate 160gb external hdd (fat32), and i was wondering if moving the page file to the external disk would garner any extra performance gains. I was also wondering if there is a difference in the transer rate from the usb->usb and hdd->usb. I was thinking about using hdtach on my external drive, so i think i'll give that a try.

Usb Speed - Same Transfer Rate From Usb 2.0 And Usb 1.1

I have a usb2 1gb thumbdrive. I have 4 usb2. 0 ports on the back of my computer and 2 usb1. 1 ports on the front of my computer.

In my device manager i have, under universal serial bus controllers, intel(r) 82801eb usb universal host controller, have 4 of those, then i have one of, intel(r) 82801eb usb2 enchanced host controller. Any suggestions? I have xppro sp2.

Hdd Transfer Speed Over Usb

I keep on wondering how come my hard drives have such a low transfer speed with usb. I have a mybook and a usb docking station. Both of them cannot transfer past than 20mbs. When i switch back to sata, i get at least 3 times the transfer speed (more for my faster drives). Sata is faster than usb, i can understand that. But usb 2. 0's rated transfer rate is 60mbs, what exactly is throttling the speed?

Can't Do Anything Else When Transfer A Large File Using Usb

So i've been running x64 for the better part of a year now on the rig in my specs. Within the last 3 months or so if i transfer a large file to any one of my various brand external hard drives i can't really do anything else on my computer, everything kinda just slows down and the usb transfer takes precedence. The strange part is my cpu usage is only like 5-15% on a single core while this is going on. I know i should most likely nuke my os install and start over but i'm curious as to what caused this. In my many years of pc tech support i have not ran into this particular issue. I have seen similar caused from crappy via usb controllers but not this exact problem. Ideas?

Best Way To Get Max File Transfer Speed (network, Usb, Etc)

I use a laptop for my main rig (hp dv8300), and i am setting up a nas in the near future and i'm trying to come up with the best way i can get the most speed to dump data to it. It's a 945gm express chipset. I have usb 2. 0, firewire of some flavor (i can't figure out which one it is), pci card slot, express/54 card slot, 100mb nic, intel something b/g mini pci nic. Ideally i would want to get a 1000mbps nic, but since my nic is onboard i can't really swap it out. A 1000mbps usb 2. 0 nic would still limit me to the 300mbps speed of usb 2. 0. 132 mbps for express card. Right now my best idea is just to get a wirless-n mimo mini pci nic and swap it in. Unless someone has a better idea.

Usb Transfer Files Won't Read

Everytime i transfer files to my usb like ms word document, pictures, and music. The file won't read! Why is this happening? For instance, if i try to open the picture i saved, all i got is a "mini x" and if i try to play music it won't play either. Next, i created folders with some documents inside it. If i try to open that folder, there is no file displayed. At first, i thought it was a bunch of hidden files. So i tried to change the settings to make invisible files visible. No luck. My files are nowhere to be found! If i try to delete it, i got an error message " cannot delete file. "

Note: i did error checking and also tried reformatting it. Unfortunately, its still not working. It still has a problem with reading/opening files. Worse, some of my files are freaking' hidden( despite making invisible folders visible)

Some additional info about the usb i'm using. 1gb kingston
Type:removable disk
Filesystem: fat32

Usb Drive Wont Work After Unplugging It During File Transfer

I gave this usb flash drive to a friend as a gift http://www.Supertalent.com/products/stt_usb_detail.php

Its the 8gb pico usb drive, ive had one for over a year and ive had no problems but my friends wont work after he told me he accidentally unplugged it during a file transfer on his mac. If i plug it in to a mac it wont see the drive, not even the disk utility. If it plug it in to a vista machine, it gets seen but it says "unknown device" and it wont show up under disk management either. Is there any possible way to fix it? This is a first for me since i thought you could not damage usb drives if you unplugged them during a file transfer (except for normal data corruption). Any ideas?

Failed To Load Detection Driver - Error

I would load windows vista and get a bsod with the failure registering in an atixxx.dll . I figured it was a driver error so i tried reinstalling my drivers. I did a driver sweep and started up the install.exe. Halfway through, the install would either crash my entire system or i would get a "failed to load detection driver" error. Very frustrating. Last night, i reinstalled vista. Drastic, i know. I installed all of the updates. I then tried to reinstall the ccc package. Same error! I looked online for some fixes. This one:

http://www.Driverheaven.net/driverheaven-tools-discussion/174912-failed-load-detection-driver-installation-error.html

Seemed promising but didn't work for me. I don't know what else to do. Any ideas? I might end up selling my 4870 and buying a nvidia product just to avoid this issue.

Computer Freezes After Detection Of Ide Drives Then Reboots

Computer freezes (locks up) after detection of ide drives then reboots. If the computer makes it past the ide detection then the windows load screen freezes (locks up) and reboots. If i make it into windows, the computer might work fine for a while, then lock up and reboot. Please keep in mind; i see no pattern to the crashes. What i have done so far:

I reset cmos. I removed all cards i didn't need to boot (sound, tv tuner)
I have disconnected both hard drives in order to boot from cd and reflash bios. I have tried flashing the bios (system locks up before bios flash can start)
I have replaced the psu from a 500w to a 700w. I have downclocked the cpu from 266mhz fsb to 150mhz fsb. I set ram timings to spd, set voltage to 2. 2, set speed to 200mhz (50% decrease. )
Put in two sticks of ballistix ddr2-667 but computer did not post (incompatible?)
No noticable difference in symptoms after any of these actions!

What may have caused it:
I recently updated the p5w's bios to 1901. There were no issues at first. While downloading a call of juarez patch in the background via a torrent, i opened up a large video file (episode of futurama. ) The computer automatically rebooted itself the moment i opened the video file. Symptoms started immediately upon restart. My personal suspicions: i think the bios may be corrupt or messing up the system, or perhaps the motherboard is just faulty in some way. The hard drive is making no concernable noise, and has always operated at a safe temperature, but when i connect the hard drives to different sata connections, it seems to help it get past the "ide detection" step (but again, keep in mind that diconnecting both drives resulted in the same sort of lockups. )

I don't suspect cpu or ram as the same symptoms occur no matter what voltage/speed they are at. (Plus, the cpu is fairly new. About a month. )

Usb Flash Drive Speed Is Very Slow

I need a larger usb flash drive and was wondering what people would suggest. I have a 4gb drive now, but need something bigger. I have noticed that the transfer rate to my drive is very slow and was wondering if that has to do with the usb technology or because of my drive. I'd like one that transfers as fast as possible, but if they all transfer at the same speed, then so be it.

Slow Format Time For Usb Flash Drives

Ever since i started using vista, one of the big annoyances i've had is the really slow format time for usb flash drives, usb / firewire connected hard drives and flash cards (sd cards, memory sticks, compact flash cards in respective usb card readers). I've been experiencing this on three different pc's running different versions of vista. Pc1 is running vista business w/ sp1. It's a dell w/ a q6600, 2gb of ram and a 320gb sata hard drive. Pc2 is running vista home premium w/ sp1. Has an asus a8n-sli deluxe, athlon 3500+, 2gb of ram and a 120gb sata hard drive. Pc3 is running vista ultimate x64 w/ sp1. Asus p5q-em, q6600, 8gb of ram, 300gb velociraptor + 150gb raptor. I've tried formatting usb flash drives, usb / firewire connected hard drives and flash cards (in usb card readers) on all three pcs. Tried on pc1 and pc2 before and after sp1 was installed and on the 3rd computer only after sp1 was installed. In all cases, formatting these devices takes forever. With pc2 and 3 running windows xp, formatting these devices was extremely fast. In all cases, i did not choose the quick format. Anyone know of a fix for this?

Mentor Usb 2.0 Pcmcia - Pioneer Dvr-108 Read Cds Very Slow

I have a laptop running windows xp w/sp2. I have just got a mentor pcmcia 2. 0 usb pcmcia and a usb enclosure for a pioneer 108 dvd-rw. At one point the dvd-rw was picked up and i could read the cds but it was very very slow, even to respond. Now the card does not show the drive up at all and its starting to cause the system to drag. What could be the cause for the problem?

The card has no drivers, its supose to just work right out of the box. Can anyone offer any suggestons? At one point it was locking the system up. From what i can tell this card has a o2micro chipset, could that be defective?

Sata2 Transfer Time

Does one need some sort of sata2 drive to take advantage of it? Or do existing sata drives recieve the transfer rate boost as well? Furthermore, is it even necessary? Do even the 10, 000 sata drives have a low enough seek time that requires a quicker transfer time?

Vhs To Hdd Transfer

I'm attempting to put all of my older vhs tape media on my pc's hdd. My vcr is older as it only has audio/video in and out rca jacks and of course a cable f-jack (believe that's what a normal cable jack is called), not even an s-video jack. My video cards are xfx 7800 gt's extreme editions in which i believe has vivo. Also i have a pvr-500 dual tuner tv card hooked up to my makeshift htpc setup. This might be the most feasible way to capture video from my vcr, but i'm a little sketchy on how to go about doing it.

Transfer Data Between Two Pcs

What is the best way to transfer the data between two computers depends on the following factors. Data transfer rate expenditure on such technology ease of use. Iíve made a poll option, and make your comments there. Hereís what i thought on this case. Usb 2. 0 supports data rates as high as 480mbps, even in normal condition it can be around 50mbps. So, to transfer 1gb of data it takes around 20 - 30 seconds. Easy to use, because the hot plug is supported. But it is expensive. To use nic (network interface card), first need to install drivers or software, because some of the main boards donít integrated nic circuitry there. Data transfer rate of crossover cable is varied from 100mbps to 10mbps. So it takes more than 30 seconds to transfer 1gb of data. Especially the length of the cable determines that. Cheaper than usb 2. 0. At the end, two factors are satisfied (data transfer rate and ease of use) by usb 2. 0, and seems to me it is fine.

I have a new computer being shipped within the next week, and i want to transfer all of the data from this computer to the new one. I don't want to put it all on cds, but i was thinking, can i get an external hard drive to store all of this data on, and then load it onto the new computer?

I'm just not sure what to do really, but if anyone has any specific ideas, please tell me. I'd love to be able to have my data ready from this computer to be put onto the new one before the computer gets here.

File Transfer Between Hard Drives Causes Computer Crash

I recently installed a new drive into my storage server (one of wd's 1tb green drives) and transferring files to it sometimes results in a computer crash. There were no issues before this latest drive was installed. Crashes have as of yet only happen when this drive is being written to, though i do not write to the other drives often so i am not sure at this point. Crashes happen much more frequently when there is increased disk activity anywhere else in the system. The system is built as follows:

Amd athlon x2 4050e 2. 1ghz dual core cpu
Jetway jnc62k w/ nvidia geforce 8200 mainboard
Os hard drive: hitachi travelstar 5k160 ata-6
Storage drives: 3x1gb wd10eads sata
Windows xp mce w/ sp3

Any suggestions where i should start troubleshooting? Does this sound like a problem you've heard before? I've run smart diagnostics on all the hard drives running wd's diag tools, and it's all come back just fine.

Transfer System Drive To Wd Caviar Black 1tb

I currently have a samsung spinpoint t166 hd501lj 500gb hard drive as my main drive, and it only has about 50gb free so i bought a wd caviar black 1tb. I originally intended this drive to be a storage drive, but i've read some articles recently that make me question transferring everything from the sammy to the wd and using it as the system drive. Apparently the wd comes with a free version of acronis to do the transfer, so it should be pretty simple. Any thoughts/opinions on this? Will i notice quite a speed difference?
