Transfer between 2 External Drives

I'm trying to transfer 600 gb between 2 1TB external drives. I attached both drives through my USB ports, opened My Computer, right clicked on the drive with the data, selected copy, right clicked on the new drive, and selected paste. The copying begins but then it stops suddenly at around 13gb transfered. There is no error message, the transfer window simply dissapears.

Any idea of the problem?

Thanks!

The best program for this file transfer is Director Opus 9 this can transfer 100gig in under 1hr as with windows transfer takes 6hrs.

As I do alot of video capture and my filse range from 400mb to 4gig in size and having to transfer 700 gig about would take forever and with this program quick and easy you also can transfer over lan or wirless net.

happy transfering

Slow transfer external hard drive


Both devices must have USB 3.0 capability to enjoy the high transfer speed that 3.0 has to offer. Check the other device (not the Buffalo) as see if it has USB 3.0 support.
First, make sure the firmware for the external and the source device are up to date. Next, try swapping the cable.
If that doesn't work, check the source and target hard drives to symptoms of failure. The transfer speed will be slow if one of the drives is failing. The manufacturer of the drive should have free diagnostic tools on their website. If not try WD Lifeguard Diagnostics or Seagate Seatools. If you are running Linux, go with smartmontools.
If the drives are healthy and if 3.0 is supported on both devices check the transfer speed with different files. Transferring one large file is faster than transferring a lot of small files.
If all else fails call Buffalo and request a replacement.

Trying to transfer data from an old harddrive i have (maxtor, diamondmax plus 9 80 GB ATA / 133 HDD) to My HP laptop


Install the hard drive into an USB hard drive adapter case the plug this USB hard drive into the USB port in your laptop. The laptop will see it as an external storage device, open the various folders and copy the files to your laptop.
You can delete any unwanted files off this external USB hard disk and use it for backups and file transfer.

How to transfer picturers to another with external harddrive


There is no way to transfer content from one external to another without using a computer. There should also be no problems plugging in two external hard drives into one computer as long as there is enough USB 2.0 slots available.
Simply plug in both external drives into a computer, open one drive, highlight the files you want, press ctrl+c or right click and select copy and then open the second external drive and press ctrl+p or right click and press paste.

Hello, I plugged in my iomega 1tb desktop hard drive storage device and the drive does not appear in my drive or computer. I do have the new hardware 'sound' that comes up but I dont have the drive show up...


Iomega 1TB Desktop Hard Drive is a dedicated usb 2.0 plug and play external storage device that has an ability to transfer at 480Mbits/second. having these large capacity storage drive needs a fast connection and additional power source to make sure to run the external unit system properly.

just make sure both power and data cables are properly plugged and connected respectively. if you are using it with a desktop, please always plug your usb connection from the Iomega 1TB external drive to the rear USB port in line where you built-in LAN is.do not plug it in the frontload ports. some motherboard manufacturers uses usb 1 and/or 1.1 only for frontload desktop casing provision.

thank you.

My computer dosen't turn on. How can I transfer the data from the hard drive to an external hard drive


Open the computer and remove the hard drive install it into another computer as a slave drive and read from it. If yo don`t know how to do that then just take the drive to a computer parts store and purchase the necessary cables so that you can attach it to your present computer USB port or have them transfer the files for you for a small fee.

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
