Question about TV Accessories
I got a new Kingston Datatraveler 16GB pendrive. It is workingperfectly on both my desktops at home. However on my laptop its failingto write data. It can read and copy data from the pendrive perfectly,however, when I try to write data on it, it writes a certain amount ona very slow speed (500-900kb/s the normal would be 10mb/s) and thencompletely stops, giving a file not found error (options are Try Again,Skip, Cancel).
Sometimes it manages to transfer at a high speed and suddenly stops at90% and stops transferring at all and hangs there at 0s remaining. After a while the pendrivecompletely disappears from the system toghether with the transfer box, and I have to replug it to appearagain. The file is now on the pendrive but its corrupted as it onlytransferred 90%...
Does anyone know what's going on? Why is my pendrive acting so weirdly?It works perfectly on other computers except on my laptop it fails towrite?
It sounds as though the problem is with your notebook, rather than the flash drive. Specifically, with the USB port you are plugging it into. If you have another USB on the notebook, try switching between the two, and see if it behaves any differently. Another thing that can cause a problem is if the USB port on your notebook is not USB 2.0. The older ports (as in, an older computer) didn't have nearly the transfer speeds of the newer standard.
Also, are you trying to run multiple USB devices on your notebook at once? That could cause problems as well.
