Wd 1.5 Green Drive - Cannot Copy Any File

I'm having a problem with my whs and i'm almost sure it's because of the new hard drive western digital green 1. 5tb i installed in my whs because i was running out of space just have about 30% left before i install this drive. And now if i'm watching a movie in my htpc from the server i can't copy any file to it. For example i was watching a blue ray (iso file) in my htpc from my whs and the htpc start to record hd tv (directly to the server) and i have to stop watching the movie because it get pretty slow i don't know if the right word to this problem is hd sluttering someone please tell me if this is the wrong word. Is there anyway to fix this issue?

Long File Names Error - Windows Xp - Unable To Copy Files

I have a windows xp home system with all the latest service packs and patches installed; and it has a primary ide hard disk and a secondary scsi hdd and an ide cdwriter/dvd. When i tried to copy files between these drives, it results in the following error: " cannot copy. . Filename. The resulting file name is too long. Specify a different file name". However, i do not have any problem copying same files from/to these drives to an usb memory stick and vice-a-versa. These long files are typically ie favorites or some other downloaded files. This problem started appearing only in the last one or two months, after upgrading to additional patches on service pack2. This problem was not there with sp2. Many of my friends with xp / home editions have similar problems of copying long filename files, which we used to copy without any problem few months earlier. Perhaps it is time for microsoft to look in to this error. Unable to get any help from any where on the internet or newsgroups for this one.

Copy Problem - Cannot Copy Or Drag Any Files To Blank Disk

I have a dell xp laptop and i have a copy problem i cant copy or drag any files to a blank disk how can i fix?


Turn off pc/laptop. Disconnect cd/dvd drive*, turn pc/laptop on, allow to boot fully, then turn off again. Re-connect cd/dvd drive and turn on. Windows will re-build the drivers or start the 'found new hardware wizard'. If that doesn't work, log on as an administrator. ***Always back up the registry before making changes (make a restore point)***

Click start, and then click run. In the open box, type regedit, and then click ok. In the navigation pane, locate and then click the following registry subkey:


Ensure the right pane has cd/dvd drive in it. In the right pane, click upperfilters. You may also see an upperfilters.bak registry entry. You do not have to remove that entry. Click upperfilters only. If you do not see the upperfilters registry entry, you still might have to remove the lowerfilters registry entry. To do this, see 'note'. On the edit menu, click delete. When you are prompted to confirm the deletion, click yes. 'note'

In the right pane, click lowerfilters. On the edit menu, click delete. When you are prompted to confirm the deletion, click yes. Exit registry editor. Restart the computer. If you do not see the lowerfilters registry entry, this can't help you any further. *Most laptops will have either a sliding switch or 1-2 screws holding the drive in. Sliding the switch or removing these screw/s will enable the drive to be pulled from the machine.

Everything i have is currently on my 320gb hd. I want to put all on my 160gb hd that i recently formatted. Is there any backup program i should use or can i just copy everything onto the other hard drive? Will it boot from that hard drive if i just copy everything? Surely it can't be that easy.

Hard Drive Copy

So i'm in the market for a new drive and i was wondering is there a program that would allow me to copy all the data off my old drive on to my new one? I need more space but i really don't feel like re-installing me os, updating all my drivers again, installing all my games again, and transferring all my music, movies and pictures to my new hard drive. So does anyone know of a program that would do this? Or if this is even possible?

Copy All Of A Drive's Files To Another Drive

If i'm on windows (windows 7) what's the best way to copy all the files of one drive to a folder on another drive, besides using the windows copy that will most likely complain about something. The drive i'm copying from and the one i'm copying to is not being used for an os. Both are external drives plugged in by usb.

Green Drive For Storage (raid 6)

I haven't followed the green drives (5400 rpm) very closely. I currently have a raid 6 array in my desktop/htpc/media center/gaming rig. Antec p183
Perc 6/i
6x wd 640gb blue's
X25-m system drive
Rampage formula with q9450 (current oc 3. 39 ghz)
Gtx 280
Air cooled (7x s-flex + 1 xigmatech pwm fan)

The performance is excellent as is, and its been perfectly reliable (much more then my x25-m ) but i'm looking to make a change for better power consumption, and i get the feeling that 7 "green, " drives may give similar performance to my current setup. And the benefit of much more capacity. Part of the issue is that it seems that the perc doesn't power down the drives when idle. I get the feeling i should look at the wd green drives, as i'll need tler support. Any recommendations?

Wd 1tb Green Drive Slow

Thoughts? I used to have a 160gb maxtor sata on this interface, just upgraded it for more storage. I copied the files off my maxtor at 50mb/s. When i started copying to the drive, it was only registering 10mb/s in the explorer window. I copied the files back off the drive at a good speed, 50ish mb/s. So i ran a benchmark with hd tune. What's up with write performance?

Samsung 2tb Green Drive Diagnostic

I am trying to find a utility to diagnose my 2tb samsung green drive to see if it has any problems. If i transfer files to and from it from other drives, there's no problem. But if i download to it, it makes these weird chucking seek noises that aren't high pitched, but worry me nonetheless. I've tried the hutil from samsung, which the cdrom version boots on startup, but gets stuck somewhere and won't stop blinking when loading. The shdiag utility also shows unknown drives for my disks and won't work either. What else is there?

If it is an option, why don't more people do it?

Usb Drive Wont Work After Unplugging It During File Transfer

I gave this usb flash drive to a friend as a gift

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?

Hard Drive Spin Down In File Server From Sata Card

I'm putting together a file server/backup server and plan to have between 6-12 sata ii drives in it. All drives will remain single and individually accessed (i.e. No raid). The file server will continue to run vista and the drives will be in two supermicro cse-m35t-1b (5 drive hot-swap enclosure)

I am currently using an intel board with 6-sata ports (ich8dh) for the file server and through vista, am able to set the drives to automatically spin-down after about 20 minutes of no activity. This works great as most of these drives are just used once or twice a day (thus don't need to be spinning 24/7). Are there any sata controller cards that will allow windows to spin-down the attached drives (just like the intel ich8dh does)? Preferably, i am looking for a 4 or 8 port pci express card (it doesn't need to have raid). I've been looking at the marvell based supermicro aoc-saslp-mv8 since it provides 8 sata ii ports in a 4x pci express package. (~$110)

I've also looked into using a simple 2-port sata pci express sil 3132 based card with one or two sil3726 based port multipliers (1 sata connection to 5 drives, addonics ad5sapm). (~$100 for both the controller & 1 port multiplier)

The drives in the file server will probably, at most, be used 1-2 at a time, and be accessed via a single gigabit ethernet port, thus overall drive throughput really isn't a concern here. My main concern is getting the drives to spin-down, so if there is another sata controller/hba out there that costs more and allows spin-down, i'm open to that as well. Cfm
