Question about Vantec 1 Bay NexStar 3 USB 2.0 External Drive Case

1 Answer

Cannot read/write I can copy files to the drive without problems, but when I try to copy files from the drive I get repeated read/write errors. Or sometimes the copying will hang part way through a file. Last night, I copied 90GB of video to the drive and had no troubles, but now that I'm trying to copy it back from the NexStar drive to a different drive, I keep getting errors. (error code -36) I'm running Mac OS X and to a small extent, I can get through by copying files one by one, or by disconnecting the drive, restarting the FInder on my computer and trying again. But this will take forever to copy 90GB of files. The drive is currently formatted FAT, but even when formatted for Mac, I still have this problem. I have also tried different USB cables, and I have tried opening the case and reconnecting the physical HDD, but with the same problems.

    As I said, I'm running Mac OS X. No such thing as drivers here.

IMac won't read Imation 160GB Apollo 2.5


Mac's won't read windows format disc, even if it's capable of reading the files wich I believe Newer Mac Operating Systems CAN DO, it can not read the file SYSTEM used to place them on the disc. You need a third computer. Put the files on a nother computer or two if you need the room or on another media or pocket drive. Use a program that VERIFIES the were moved without errors while copying them, the use the Mac to format the now empty disc drive and download Mac Pooler, or File Stuffer, and copy the files back onto the disc. Now the Mac will be able to read the drive they're on.

I have an older HP Pavilion PC with Windows ME. I recently copied 164 Adobe Acrobat files from my ?C? Hard Drive to a 2 GB SanDisk USB 2.0 Flash Drive without any problems. Now I cannot copy any more files...


Sounds like the F.A.T. (File Allocation Table) is bad on the drive. Try to format it and then copy everything back to it once again.

Drive will not copy files to it


The Macintosh OS may not work with the drive due to the file system on the drive was created with windows. The drive may have to be re-formatted with the Mac to work on it. Now I don't use a Mac so I assuming the OS will have a problem with FAT32 or NTFS format that windows uses....I could be wrong.

Copied files disappeared as soon as they were copied over


Did you try to copy one picture file to your mini harddrive then change it properties to archieve only? After that you can rotate it freely without that annoying message.

If that does not go as expected. Could be virus infection. Both your miniharddrive and your computer is infected. Some do it by changing it properties to read only then hide it.

You should first start disinfecting. The files can be view by clicking tools in My computer then set to view hidden files then start exploring your minihard drive. Some infection only affects picture files.

Just for the thought.

I am having Jetflash v10 16 gb model 'Transcend' USB Flash Drive.


Dear Friend,

My Jetflash also writeprotected, there's no any solution for this in internet but I could solve this problem,

what you can do is, make your write protected drive "shared", that means go to my computer---> then rigtclick on flash drive---> click sharing & security---> check both "share this folder on network" & "allow users to change my files" ,apply setting then you'll be able to format your drive.

I could do it,
let others to know about this solution. Because I also suffered from this problem.

Cannot Open Excel 2000 File.


I presume you are trying to open the document using the Recently Opened file list in Excel's "File" menu. If so, use the "Open" entry in the "File" menu instead and navigate to the pen drive from there - it may be that the drive letter has changed. Another possibility: use Windows Explorer (which can be accessed by double clicking on My Computer) to copy the file from the pen drive to the desktop and open it from there by double clicking on it. If that still doesn't work (but the copy worked OK) then right click on the file, click on "Properties" and see if the Read Only box is checked. If so, uncheck it.

And yet another possibility: after closing the file, did you pull the pen drive from the PC without telling Windows to eject it first? If you just remove the drive too quickly, without ejecting it first, the file can easily be corrupted.
