Question about Computers & Internet
The USB works fine when I plug it into the USB port, but when I try to copy a file bigger than 20Mb it ejects and connects itself back again. I already format it and change the format from FAT32 to NTFS
This may be problem with defective USB port or Suitable Drivers not loaded in your PC. Use Terra Copy Software and try once

The only risk associated with file formats is that a drive formatted with FAT32 file system will not see NTFS formatted file system, whereas, a drive formatted with NTFS file system will definitely see FAT32.
To make it clearer, this means that, if on your system, your hard drive which is having the operating system installed on it, is formatted with FAT32 file system, and you bring an external drive, or even a backup drive which is formatted with NTFS file system, and you plug it to your system, the system will detect it but it wont be able to access the full drive capacity, you will just see it in the device manager page that it is connected.
But If it is Vice-Versa, the NTFS formatted drive will detect the FAT32 drive.
Now in your own case, if your system is formatted in NTFS file system and you plug in your external drive which is NTFS formatted also, from what you have said, I suspect that you have some hidden partitions on your harddrive (the 250GB), so when you plug it, try and do this, Right-Click on my computer icon, select manage, then go to Disk Management Option.
On the Disk management option Page you should see ALL the drives installed on your system, including the hidden ones, so what you will just do is, try and locate the one representing your external drive, and right click on it. then select "Change Drive letter and Paths", and give the drive any new, unique letter (i.e alphabet) different from the ones already on your system, and click on OK.
If you see any other hidden drives there, do the same thing to it.
This should make your External Drive to be detected automatically.
Hope this helps you out.

ITS virus problem which is playing with the inf file of the usb drive.
also another possibility is 1) the usb port ihas loose connections and disconnects i between drive sensing
2) certain 8 gb drives go back to a capacity of 2 gb drive if one formats it accidentally .

SOURCE: Format from NTFS to FAT 32
You'll want to leave this drive in NTFS format as FAT32 has lots of limitations in cluster size and total drive size.
The issue with your DVD- Media Player has nothing to do with how you formatted an external 1TB HDD.
It's possible that the two occured at the same time for different reasons.

CRC errors mean that your drive is failing. Return and replace the drive if it is still under warranty.
