Windows 7: BSOD on large USB data transfers

18 Nov 2011   #11

Win 8 Release candidate 8400

Best advice that I've seen about this error (from here: )
What you're looking for will be in one of the following categories:

a) BIOS bug
b) a driver whose activity is causing the target processor to lock up
c) a hardware defect (temperature, voltage, dust, RFI, outright borkedness...)
So, check the drivers
Then check the inside of the case (temperature, voltage, dust, etc).
Then run some hardware stress tests

Try this free video stress test: FurMark: VGA Stress Test, Graphics Card and GPU Stability Test, Burn-in Test, OpenGL Benchmark and GPU Temperature | oZone3D.Net
Try this free stress test: Free Software - GIMPS
Prime95 Setup:
- extract the contents of the zip file to a location of your choice
- double click on the executable file
- select "Just stress testing"
- select the "Blend" test. If you've already run MemTest overnight you may want to run the "Small FFTs" test instead.
- "Number of torture test threads to run" should equal the number of CPU's times 2 (if you're using hyperthreading).
The easiest way to figure this out is to go to Task Manager...Performance tab - and see the number of boxes under CPU Usage History
Then run the test for 6 to 24 hours - or until you get errors (whichever comes first).
The Test selection box and the stress.txt file describes what components that the program stresses.
Then try replacing parts.
Then look up the versions of your BIOS to see what changes were done.

I disabled the "allow windows to turn off this device to save power" and I also disabled hibernating. After a couple of days without issues and uploading music do Google Music (constant usb transfers), It happened again today backing up to crashplan. This sucks.

I still haven't tried the stress tests, but got another dump file. Could anyone check it out for me?

i am trying to transfer a 4 GB+ file (video) onto a 32 GB pendrive (FAT32) but a message - "The file 'xyz' is too large for the destination file system" - comes. is it because the pendrive has FAT32 formatting? and if so, should i format it into NTFS?

BSOD when running handbrake or during large file transfers
This is a computer that I built a couple of months ago and it consistently crashes when running handbrake, not every time but say 3 out of 4 times. It will also crash when making large file transfers like moving my movies from one hard drive to another. I have ran Memtest86 without any problems. I...

Connection drops with large transfers
I noticed that when I try to copy over a 4.02GB file from my desktop to my laptop it goes for about 10-15 minutes and then stalls before telling me that the file destination/source no longer exists and cancels the transfer. But if I leave it alone they'll see each other in a few minutes time. This...

7 umounts external drive during large transfers?
Yup, it's been happening ever since the install. Everytime I perform large transfers or transfer of many files, windows seems to unmount it smack dab in the middle of the operation! And the copying windows doesn't respond to conventional methods of exiting. This has been a problem for a while,...
