I got a Flash drive and a Seagate Agent Backup External Hardive, both
run over a USB 2 Port, all the files I'm trying to transfer are 10MB
and up. Small files don't seem to be an issue. It just gave me the
same problem when I tried to delete one of the alrge files.....Mouse
runs fine, the video camera deos the same thing... it seems to be more
of a large file problem..... both storage device run fine on my old
desktop that has XP on it...
