I'd never heard that before - but it has never given me any issues; I've had an X drive for fifteen years, I think. Can't be related to this though, I don't think - as it happens with other drives...

Shortcuts (etc.) keep switching to a network location

I notice that the icon pictures of some of my desktop shortcuts keep disappearing, changing to the default. When I look at the shortcut properties, I see that it has changed from something like this...

OK... I can try, thanks: but to be honest I don't think that's the issue. Why not? Because I have been copying all day and since the mid-afternoon (that's five hours now), the transfer has been...

Thanks for the replies. If the problem is due to the buffer, then perhaps there's nothing to be done? It's very unpredictable - the move has been running at 20-30MB/s for 45 minutes now. Other times,...

Why does copying files start fast then slow down so dramatically?

I have a lot of files to move, about 1200GBs to go... The files are more or less all the same size, about 10MBs each. They are being copied from one external HDD to another, via USB3.0 and my Win7...

I wouldn't be using USB drives on this, just the gaming devices.
I remembered I have a hub with no switches and tried the devices (Saitek X52 and Nostromo N52) in that and they seem to work OK, so a...

USB cable on/off switch?

Does anyone know if you can buy a little USB2.0/3.0 cable extension with a switch on it, for turning the device on and off? I have bought some (very cheap) from eBay and from Amazon (UK), but the...

OK, thanks for the warning. Since I always use a PS2 keyboard with the 'PS2 OK' PC, I never move the plug. Only done so now when testing. Won't do it again then! I think everything is OK.

I thought PS2 had native drivers? Whatever, all looks fine in Device Manager, no exclamation marks. Thanks.

Oh, sorry, you mean totally 'off' - not just in the quasi-off reboot state? On the PC that accepts the PS2 though, I can disconnect and reconnect as often as I like whilst the PC is running; the PS2...

PS2 Keyboard - works on one PC, not on the other

Both PCs run Win7 x64. On one, when I plug in a PS2 keyboard, it works immediately. On the other, it doesn't. I know the PS2 port is OK on that second PC, as a PS2 keyboard works fine in the BIOS...

Yes, I was lucky with the PS2 - it's a relatively new PC, so it wasn't a given that when I checked on the back that a PS2 port would be there. I use a PS2 keyboard on my second PC, so all was well.

I haven't noticed any difference (yet) when I boot, so I'll leave it on Full. I just wondered exactly how the PC responded differently at boot with the two settings. Does full just mean more 'BIOS...

USB - Partial or Full Initialization in BIOS?

OK, thanks. I have a suspicion (that I will try to test out at some stage) that my USB 3.0 speeds are not all that much better than those for my USB2.0. In which case, if I do get BSODs again (the...

It doesn't matter whether the hardware is plugged into a USB2 or USB3 port, it's having the Intel USB3 controller active that causes the problem.

So you are saying that this Asus board will not be...

How to replace Intel USB3.0 controller?

Hi. It is well recorded across various forums (including Saitek's own) that Saitek gaming hardware (eg X52) has a big issue (leading to BSODs) with Intel USB 3.0. Another here:

Thanks... To be honest, I never understand the USB3.0 625MB/s given speed. What is that unit exactly? You surely can't move 1GB of data in under 2 seconds?? Is my average of about 4MB/s the best I am...
