    Vista firewire copy failure

    I've been running Vista since late Feb/early March without any trouble until
    my friend told me on his new computer I helped him build that he couldn't
    transfer files over firewire from an external DVD drive (an older LaCie). He
    is running Vista Home Premium 64 and I have Ultimate 64.

    I tested my external DVD drive (Plextor PX708-A in a Mapower enclosure) and
    firewire didn't work, giving the following error (Error 0x800705AA:
    Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service).

    I also connected through USB and it did work (all USB peripherals have been
    fine)

    I also decided to test my Sandisk Ultra firewire compact flash card reader
    and I got this error (Invalid MS-DOS function):
    http://www.morphien.com/files/error2.jpg

    I'm running off an Asus P5B-E board and he has a P5B deluxe I think. I have
    an E6600 and he has an E6420 and we both have 4gb RAM.

    This is a nuisance, and a surprise (although fortunately one that doesn't
    really affect my usage of the computer). I haven't heard of this
    anywhere before so I don't know if it's a Vista & driver interaction
    problem or what. I have been able to transfer files from the card reader
    using software transfer like Canon ZoomBrowser or in Adobe Bridge but both of
    the above transfers failed for both of us within Windows Explorer which leads
    me to think it's something about how the Vista file browser handles copies,
    since apparently a workaround is to do the transfers through the command line
    (not an ideal solution). If files are less than 1 mb or so they usually
    work, but any bigger and they fail.

    Can anyone offer any help? Let me know if I left out any crucial information.

    I can't offer any solutions, but I have exactly the same problem with a Lexar
    firewire compactflash reader.

    "Invalid MS-DOS function" if I try to copy anything TO the card. Works fine
    copying FROM the card.

    Vista Ultimate 32bit
    Lexar model RW011 Rev B
    MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum motherboard

    What same problem. You don't copy as in "Burn" to your USB pen, you use it
    like a hard drive. Copy, drag and Drop, Paste, Delete all work. External
    drives the same.

    Ian,

    The point is Copy, drag and Drop, Paste, Delete DON'T work for everyone.

    a message saying 'Illegal MSDOS function' is NOT working! Especially on
    Windows...
