I had no problem when i plugged it in, but when i try to transfer a big file, say 7 gb it comes up with a error saying that there is no more space, though there are like 280 gb left, this is really starting to get on my nerves.
I even get a blue screen when i do two things at the same time, both require alot of CPU but i haven't had any problems like this before.
i didn't install drivers since it appeared to work at first so i guess my question is really, where are the drivers if any? i'm running XP SP2

U probalby is using windows XP or something like that wich can only format ur pendrive as "FAT" file system wich have max 4GB capacity per file, in order to fix your problem you need an external software for formating ur pendrive or use win 7 if you have win 7 just backup your data and format the pendriver and where it says " File system" will come with "FAT" as standard just click and select "NTFS" format it and be happy^^
Since you did not mentioned how many files or how big is the files you are transferring I will just assume you are transferring several files or several folders. You best shot is to transfer files by batch or transfer it little by little. This way you will know which of the files are not transferring to your hard drive. Please note get all the files that are not giving errors. After doing that you need to scan your USB for errors.
If your Operating system is WINDOW 7 / windows xp
- Go to my computer - Right click the USB drive then properties - Click Tool tab - Then Click check now - After that try copying the files again.
click start control panel administrive tools ,computer management ,device manager scroll down universal serial bus controllers you should see a yellow question mark? right click to reinstall drivers make sure the lead/s that attach to this drive have a secure seating and are not bad/faulty the light on only tells that its getting power it might not be getting enough power you might test the lead/s or just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again, sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable, hope this helps
It is picture file that stops file transfer function, delete that picture and continue or go to memory card through my computer > mass storage drive and delete that file or copy rest of files and past in computer some where like my documents etc.
That particular picture file DSC03270.jpg is incomplete/ corrupted and causing problem in files transfer operation. Either delete it or bypass it and transfer rest of files from camera.
After transferring files to computer, format memory card to avoid any problem in next time as option would be in camera menu.
Let me know if you have additional question.
It is possible your external drive is formatted using FAT32. You need to need to format it to NTFS. Windows XP caps the file size for transfer and will not move them if they are over 4Gigs if I remember correctly.
Make sure you have saved all of your files onto another drive or onto your computer temporarily before you do the next step. The next step will erase all of the contents of your hard drive and you will not be able to get them back.
Also, before you
Go to My computer and right click on your external drive then click on properties. Look at the File System and if it says FAT32 or anything other than NTFS then you will need to do the next step. Again, backup your external drive contents before anything else.
Go to My Computer, right click on the drive and then format it and make sure you choose file system NTFS. You can also choose the quick option to speed things up. Once complete you will be able to transfer large files to the external drive. Hope this helps.
What is the USB drive formatted as? Look in My Computer then right click the USB drive, select Properties. See what it says under "File System". My guess is the drive is formatted as FAT32. Now FAT32 has a size limitation of 4GB for a single file, which would explain the error. To get over this you need to reformat the USB drive as NTFS. Then it will accept the 6.95GB file. You can format the drive by right clicking it again and selecting "Format" ... choose NTFS from the drop down menu. Be aware that any data already on the drive will be wiped by the format so be sure to back it up before formatting.
What is the filesystem format on your external hard drive?
there are limits on certain file systems, like maximum size of a single file in fat32 is 4gb.
let me know the filesystem on your external hard drive and i will try to consult a few friends for you.
