How I can repair a USB that ejects itself when transferring files?

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

SOURCE: Reformat my external drive to NTFS

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.
Goodluck!

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.

How do i transfer music files onto a sandisc to use in my car


This can depend on the 'head' of the stereo equipment. Chances are if the head has a usb input then it can run the music files in mp3 format. A quick check on the manufacturer's website will give you more information.

-Assuming it can run mp3, use a file browser to locate the music files on your computer
-Plug in and verify the computer recognizes the usb device "sandisc" (it will pop up with a name like F: drive, unless previously assigned a nickname)
-Copy and paste the files by highlighting them, right click and select copy from the context menu
-Open the usb device and right click, select paste to copy the files over to the usb
-Once the computer is finished, you can right click the usb device and select 'safely remove' or 'eject'
-Plug that puppy into your car and enjoy!

Can i transfer my pictures from the gallery on my tablet to a flash drive


Yes, but it takes several steps to transfer pics from your tablet to a flash drive.

There are two ways of accessing tablet files: 1) wireless access which requires a sync app on your tablet and PC software of the same app type. One such app for sync between Android (any) to/from PC software is Cheetah Sync: http://www.jrtstudio.com/cheetah-sync-android-wireless-sync.

Alternatively, you can use ES File Explorer's Network/LAN/Cloud/FTP functions to share files between your Android phone/tablet and your PC via secure Wifi: http://www.cnet.com/how-to/share-files-between-android-and-windows-with-es-file-explorer/

or 2) wired via the USB charging cable, which I will explain in more detail:

Plug your table to your PC using the Samsung charger cable that doubles as a data transfer cable when you remove the USB plug from the wall charger cube and plug it to the USB port on your PC.
Your PC should read your tablet as an external drive: Open "My Computer" and double-click the tablet drive icon>search your subfolders for your pictures. Highlight your picture files and either copy and paste or drag and drop (different way of copy/paste) to your desktop (or desired location), copies will be transferred but not moved from the tablet unless you "cut and paste" from your table to PC to clear out your tablet and make more space. When done, unplug your tablet cable from the PC. Plug in your flash drive to the available USB port: access the flash drive icon on My Computer. Drag and drop or copy and paste picture files to your flash drive.

When I connect my camera through any USB port on my macbook, the transfer process will always begin fine, however the process will not complete. I get a "failed to transfer the image" error message as well...


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.

How to download from computer to memory stick


Plug your memory stick into the USB slot on the computer. If this is the first time that particular memory stick is being placed into the machine, it will take a few seconds to find the drivers and install it.
Once this is completed, you want to open "My Computer" and look for the Removable Device that will normally have a drive letter of (F:) for example. When you have this window open, open another window, this time with the location of the information you want save on your memory. Once this is found you can transfer them by right clicking on each of the files you want sent to the memory stick and click "send to .....and send it to the removable device. If you want to transfer files in bulk, you can simply drag the files you want into the window you already have open with the removable disk. Practice it and it will become like second nature to you.
Hope this helped...

I want to save a powerpoint on to a usb stick to put on my laptop but I'm not sure how to use a memory stick


You should use a flash drive just like a floppy disc (if all you do with it is transfer files). Insert the USB stick into a USB port; watch for a message about found new hardware and then ready to use. Either drag and drop the file from hard disc to the USB stick (depending on your system it could be drive E:) in the File Explorer (in Windows use a right click to ensure a copy file, not a move file) or File > Save As and change the default location in PowerPoint. When done with the file transfer, click on Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media in the System Tray or Eject in the Explorer (My Computer).

I hope this helps.

I have seen USB ports fried like this, by USB devices. It can render them usesless.

What you can try, is go to the Device Manager, and uninstall the USB ports there. Then go up to Scan for hardware changes. That should automatically reinstall the drivers, in case they got hosed.

If that still does not work, they may be dead. I have seen it where even a device light works, which means there is power on the USB port, but the communications part does not work.

In a desktop PC, you can get an add in PCI card, and route the ports to the front, that is a possible fix for you.
