    Usb problem in windows 8


    Hi

    I am hoping someone can solve this problem for me,I have searched high and low on the net,deleted and reinstalled devices and drivers,reset windows amd even reinstalled vista and then windows 8 upgrade and still i get this strange problem,

    The problem is when i put a flash pen in the front or rear usb ports (all are usb 2) everything is ok,in my computer flashpen drive shows up and device manager shows working fine,until i try to transfer a music or video file to or from the usb flash pen.

    I either get it start to transfer,then slow down and stop or it just says calculating and nothing happens or i get a dialog box asking me if i wanna retry as file is missing?

    I have reformatted all the flashpens in fat32 and ntfs formats and still same problems,pens all work fine on my laptop.

    This happens on every usb port,I upgraded to win 8 from vista and didnt have this problem before.

    I have had to use windows default drivers or download updated drivers from intel like latest chipset etc as the disc that came with my motherboard does not work on windows 8,it just shows nothing to install.and foxconn website dosent have usb drivers to download?

    my videos and music are on a seperate internal hard drive.

    Everything else works fine on the pc

    Any help is really appreciated

    with regards

    Dave

    Fat 32 is only needed for XP machines, using on 7 or 8, NTFS. Most of the problems described like yours tend to be permissions related, try checking the sharing settings for your music/video folders, shared with everyone and not marked read only...also power settings can kick in and stop a transfer while unattended.

    Go to an individual file and check properties to see if it is 'Read Only'...try right clik Copy, go to pendrive, paste...does that work?

    If you can paste it on the desktop, then the pendrive is set 'Read Only'...stands to reason, if the machine can see the pendrive, then the problem isn't with the usb, has to be security or permission...

    Right click on the pendrive in Computer and select properties, what does it tell you?

    In the general tab, does it show the correct amount of space available? In Security tab, does it say Everyone and all but Special Permissions checked? Are you using Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media from the system tray or right click the drive and Eject before removing from the USB?
