I just got a new pc and everything is working fine except my usb 2.0 flash drives. Every time I save or try to write a file that's bigger than just 100-200 kb, it hangs and then I get a "delayed write failed" error. The drive still appears in windows explorer but shows no files. Reinsterting the drive gets it to appear correctly again.
I have several different flash drives...and several brands, ranging from a 4GB MyFlash to a 16GB Kingston. It does this with all of them regardless of which usb port I use.
Also, I have not had this problem with external hard drives using *the same usb port*. Just the flash drives. They worked fine with my old computer and they work fine on my pc at work, laptops, etc. I have never had this problem until I got this pc.
The pc is built with an Asus mb, 4GB ram, and a quad core AMD Phenom cpu. Not sure what other info I could provide.
It's got to be some sort of setting. I can't save any large files (or reather I can only save really small files) which defeats the purpose of a flash drive!
It has no problem *reading* large files, just writing them. And there is no problem with saving small files.
I have done a search and this seems an old problem with a wide range of causes. I really need to resolve this. HELP!
