    Hi ALL,

    I have a problem that affects all my USB2 to IDE devices on all 3 of
    my computers (Windows XP Pro).

    It doesn't matter how much data is on the HDD to read from it via
    USB2. The problem arises when I have to write. A collection of small
    files will go through even if there is 20gb of them. If there is a
    large file then after a random while of writing it the USB drive would
    dissapper from MY COMPUTER and I get a write failure (DISK FULL)
    report. If I unplug and reinsert the USB connection again, it will
    work as if nothing happened until I again have a large file to write.

    Does anyone have a solution????


    Thanks

    What is your definition of a large file?

    Hard to say but I would think above 600-700 mb
