files sent to usb flash drive incomplete


Recommended Posts

When sending large files - mainly movies - to a flash drive plugged into my usb port it often

stops when only about 25% is loaded. Sometimes it loads perfectly but on other occasions

I have to try three or four times to get it to load properly. Sometimes I dont succeed.

This occurs when using three different flash drives.

 

Operating system:Windows 7 Starter (32 bit) Service Pack 1

System root: C:\Windows

Available physical memory: 1789 MB

CPU: Pentium® Dual-Core CPU E5700 @ 3.00GHz

Drive Info:

C: 465.66 GB

Internet Explorer: 11.0

A lot of flash drives are formatted FAT, not NTFS.  There is a 4 GB limit on file size in a FAT formatted drives/partitions.  Perhaps your "large" movies are bigger than 4 GB?  You could format your flash drive to NTFS, which supports larger file sizes, but some players don't support NTFS formatted flash drives.

 

Just a thought.  Have a great day.
