Re: copying certain files to usb hangs PC?

I didn't realise a USB stick consumed 300mA of power. There is a feature in Device Manager that lists each device consumption, to be sure I unplugged all but mouse and USB stick, the problem still persists. I need to try an ALT power supply really. Current one installed is 250Watts, the default supp...

Re: copying certain files to usb hangs PC?

Okay so loaded up new motherboard. Its more stable, files can be copied but verrrry slowly. If copy is cancelled it doesn't crash explorer unlike before. I'm using some pretty early nforce drivers, not fernandos ones. I opened System Event Viewer and Cleared all events then copied files to USB to se...

Re: copying certain files to usb hangs PC?

Indeed. Latest bios on both. Initially it was Intel based nForce 630i MCP73, Foxconn Irvine then I moved to AMD based nForce 710a MCP78, Pegatron Nutmeg. I was so pissed off at the constant crashes of the nutmeg it got smashed and Reverted to intel. The only reason I like these is the plentiful feat...

Re: copying certain files to usb hangs PC?

Swapped motherboard for another and tried again, everything else is the same.

The files copy and eventually complete copying but it takes very long time, just not as long as it did on previous mobo.

Bloody weird I tell ya

Re: copying certain files to usb hangs PC?

It happens on all USB drives.

An alt. nlite install with BITS intact concludes its not culpable, however I suspect another, also absent service
Performance Logs and Alerts service, may be.

I shall make image with this installed and see. Expect report within a day.

Re: copying certain files to usb hangs PC?

Power isnt an issue; removed all other devices from usb ports and transfers are still slow. Tried alternative USB Stick too. According to on post on MS forums, Background Intelligent Transfer Service being may be related. I should try another nlite/XP image with BITS included see if that changes any...

Re: copying certain files to usb hangs PC?

Tried alternative 'optimized' chipset drivers on fresh install of nlited XP, same thing happens. Explorer goes unresponsive if you click cancel; the only way to get PC to respond is to unplug USB stick. There are no reports of this particular USB stick failing online, so I'm left to assume its somet...

Re: copying certain files to usb hangs PC?

No anti-virus running.

It worked fine before I re-did an nlite of SP3 to integrate AHCI drivers. Then I booted up that copy and made it main boot.

Re: copying certain files to usb hangs PC?

5.1.2600.5512 for NTFS

zipfldr.dll shouldn't matter, the problem is copying files in a regular folder.
The files were not compressed with zip to begin with fyi, I just compressed them to test, i.e. when zipped, same files transfer faster than if they aren't. Explorer is doing something funny...

Re: Browser For Windows XP?

Tired KM-Goanna. Responsive. Not sure which is better between KM-Goanna & Seamonkey. KM-Goanna has slightly more flash compatibility with 'certain' video plugins though.

I tried Pale-moon and it wasn't working how I'd liked.

copying certain files to usb hangs PC?

I have a folder with files, They take forever to copy to a USB drive. Explorer eventually hangs. Copy doesn't cmplete unless you wait an hour (lol). If compressed beforehand, copies at normal speed (really quick). More of a curiosity than an urgent problem... Any ideas? EDIT: I believe its a (power)...

INF+FIles in a folder, How to slipstream?

Whats the easiest way to do this with nlite? I looked over some addon maker tutorials but theyre long winded for something I'm sure can be much simpler.
Does nlite support adding .infs? (they are not drivers, but something else).
