Everytime I am trying to install a large application or transfer a large amount of information the drive hangs and interrupts the transfer. Is this a problem with USB in general or the SImpleTech drive. Not very useful to have a large capacity external drive if you cant transfer large amounts of data.

Re: Hangs on large installations or data transfer
THat means that there is something wrong with the drive already. I can transfer up to 100 Gig of a single file to large USB drives so generally transferring is not a problem. Try formatting the drive then transfer again. Or your USB port on your computer is only a USB 1.1 and not USB 2.0

If you are re-installing your software from a factory partition and you are hanging up in one of the processes, chances are good that you have Bad sectors and blocks on you hard drive.
This partition is a reserve and if damaged, will be useless.
If the system hangs, your information will still be on the drive.
Find a 64 bit version of win7 and try to repair.
If you have a USB external drive, you can transfer any needed data to it.
Also, if you have a emergency boot disk, you may be able to restart unit to retrieve data.

With this method of upgrading your handheld, you'll transfer all PIM¹ data from your existing user name to your new handheld with the same user name. You will also transfer all third-party applications to your new handheld.
Caution: Some third-party applications may not be compatible with your new handheld. Your handheld will crash, freeze or display an error when these third-party applications conflict with your new handheld. If you notice performance issues or problems after transferring third-party software to your handheld, follow our steps for diagnosing third-party software issues.
You must install the version of Palm Desktop and HotSync Manager included on the CD-ROM with your new handheld, even if you already have an earlier installation on your computer, and even if you will synchronize with Microsoft Outlook. This ensures that the desktop components of any new handheld features are added.
Put the new handheld's CD-ROM² in the CD-ROM drive.
Follow the installation instructions that appear.
When prompted, select the existing username of your old handheld.
During installation, you will be asked to perform a HotSync operation. Use the same existing username as above.
Once installation is complete, your PIM¹ data and third-party applications will be transferred to your new handheld. Your new handheld will have the same name as your old handheld.
To avoid confusion, change the name on your old handheld once you're sure that you have all your data transferred to your satisfaction. If you're going to sell or give it away, you may wish to perform a hard reset to erase all your personal data.
With this method, you have a greater likelihood of encountering third-party application incompatibilities. If you notice performance issues or problems after transferring third-party software to your handheld, follow our steps for diagnosing third-party software issues.
Hi, You can transfer the data files only from the old laptop to the new one. You cannot transfer the installed applications/software. Software are required to installed again on the new laptop afresh. To transfer the data you can use external portable hard disk, which can be connected to the PC using any USB port (just like pen drive) and you can copy - paste the required data to the external disk just like you copy data from one partition to another. After copying the required data, you can connect the external drive to new laptop and copy the data to the new laptop. You can use external drive of any brand/ capacity. However, it is better to have an external drive with larger capacity, so that you can transfer the data in one go.
Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya! CreativeTECH
This issue needs to go back to Newtech. They can guide you through the issue. Is the external drive LARGE enough? Windows backup takes huge amounts of room. I suggest Handy Backup Pro, it can pull backup across networks, and push the data to drives and ONLINE locations.
It depends on how old your computer is and how big your HD is for small amounts use DVDs and the other way i do it is have a secound hard drive in the computer so if something happens to the system it usually does not effect the second hard drive Another way is to have a large USB portable hard drive I sometimes use this as I take information to another location
just fully uninstall your pc suite from your computer restart it then install it again, normally it happens beacause of any single file is missing there unexpected way. after installing connect your phone.
