sorry to bother and disturb all of you,but i found out the reason behind my problem.actually i installed an application "teracopy" for copying files faster between disks/partitions,and it was causing all the mess. all are advised not to install "teracopy" with windows 7.thanks for ur great support and cooperation.

I'm having the same problem: Can't copy files from external HDD to internal.

OT. - Using capital letters is considered shouting on the Internet.

All caps is akin to shouting in an online forum setting. Would you like it if someone ran into an auto shop screaming at the top of their lungs that they have a cracked windshield and it is very urgent because it has happened before and they had to replace it? Just want to get that into perspective.

Alright, so can you clarify your problem (in proper English please)? You cannot copy, cut, or paste ANY file on your computer?
