0x80070079

Q: 0x80070079

Hey,

Got a weird one with this. If I use the rear USB ports to copy files to any destination (NAS, local Storage Spaces drive) it always works fine.

If I use the front panel USB ports, I get this:






Error 0x80070079: The semaphore timeout period has expired.



Has anyone seen and fixed this before? I'm stumped. It can't be the USB drive as it works from the back. The back is a mixture of USB 2/3 and the front is USB 3 only, if that helps.

Thanks

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Check if there is a new version of the USB 3.0 controller driver for your motherboard.

Whenever I try to copy large files over a wireless network (Laptop > Desktop) I get the following error:-
 
Error 0x80070079: The semaphore timeout period has expired
 
I've done a search on Google and have found that a number of other users are having the same problem, but no-one seems to have a fix for it.
 
Can anyone help?
 
(I'm running Vista Ultimate on both my Laptop & Desktop)

Hello Ady,
 
Thanks for your post!
 
This issue may be a little complex and require some steps to troubleshoot:
 
1.    Update the driver of wireless network adapters in both of your computers.
2.    Temporarily disable all the firewalls and anti-virus applications, then check the issue again.
3.    To exclude the factors from other services and applications, do a clean boot to check the issue and perform Step 4.(KB929135) How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vistahttp://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;929135
4.    With clean boot, try to apply the hotfixes contained in the following KB articles:(KB932045) Error message when you use a network connection to copy a large file from one Windows Vista-based computer to another Windows Vista-based computer: "The connection has been lost"
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;932045(KB932063) Several problems occur on a Windows Vista-based computer when you work in a wireless network environment
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;932063
If problem still persists after steps above, this issue is very possibly due to network devices or configurations, please let me know:
 
1.    Whether this problem occurs in wired network?
2.    If strengthening the network signals, the problem can be changed?
3.    What size of files will lead to this error.
4.    Does this error terminate the copy process?

So I did a search and found nothing definitive regarding this particular error in my application.

I have a Dell laptop with an i7 processor, an SSD drive and 8g of ram, running Win7 Pro 64 bit.

I put a 128G micro sd card into the sd card adapter and slapped into the slot. When I try to move files to the card, I get the error.

I formatted the card just for grins. It won't format NTFS, but it did format exFat @ default allocation unit size.

The only file that didn't copy was one that's 21 megs in size. Everything else was smaller and copied over fine.


Donno what to do from here. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Sarge
