BSOD when running handbrake or during large file transfers

Q: BSOD when running handbrake or during large file transfers

This is a computer that I built a couple of months ago and it consistently crashes when running handbrake, not every time but say 3 out of 4 times. It will also crash when making large file transfers like moving my movies from one hard drive to another. I have ran Memtest86 without any problems. I have also ran Prime95. When running prime95 these are the options:

It ran the first two options with no problems, but crashes pretty quickly when running the blend test.

Here is a copy of the report from reliability manager for the crash:

I have updated and reupdated all the drivers a couple of times.

Also I ran handbrake in SAFEMODE and still had the crash. I was trying to eliminate some of the hardware and drivers from causing the crashes, but I am not sure what drivers or hardware are eliminated during SAFEMODE.

Please help....thanks.

Preferred Solution: BSOD when running handbrake or during large file transfers

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.)

A: BSOD when running handbrake or during large file transfers

Your .dmp file shows a stop error of 0x124 which is a general hardware error .





Quote:
A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint.

Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress


Some generic advice.

If you are overclocking STOP. Return to the default settings at least for now.
If you are running a RAID update its driver.

I am repeatedly have problems transferring large files between my VISTA Ult 64 machine and my XP Pro 32 bit machine. While trying the transfer files from the Vista machine to the XP machine, the file transfer usually stops and drops off. If I do the transfer of the files from the Vista machine via the XP machine, the files transfer without a hitch. It appears that the transfer cannot be initianted from the VISTA Ult Machine.

Someone must know why this is occurring.

A:Problems with Large FIle transfers

You might give TeraCopy beta a try.

I've been using the 32 bit beta for quite a while. You can change the settings for
buffer sizes in the Options.ini file until you hit an optimum. The other issue may have
to do with file sharing permissions firewall etc.. but at least Vista Shell Copy issues will be out of the loop.

i am trying to transfer a 4 GB+ file (video) onto a 32 GB pendrive (FAT32) but a message - "The file 'xyz' is too large for the destination file system" - comes. is it because the pendrive has FAT32 formatting? and if so, should i format it into NTFS?

A:large (> 4 GB) file transfers in FAT32/NTFS

Welcome to the Seven Forums

You are correct you will need to format to NTFS as FAT32 is limited to 4 GB.

Hi,

I have moved to Windows 7 Ultimate x64 for almost half a year, recently my hard drive was getting full and I decided to move some of the data to usb external hard drives. Both the externals I have are IDE hard drives and both are NTFS. I always use Quicksfv to make a CRC check file before I transfer the file and then run the CRC check after its been copied over to the external drive. I have used these externals in the past with Windows XP and had no problems.

However, on Windows 7 when transferring large files (usually over 1GB in size), I get corruption in the files. The corruption occurs randomly, if I recopy the files again it might be corruption free. This only occurs when copying files from internal to external, if I copy files from the external to my internal there's no corruption at all.
I have tried changing the usb cables, power cable of the externals, using different usb ports but none of it helped. I scanned both externals with chkdsk and I used memtest+ for over 24hours and all the tests passed fine.

Regards,
Pleco

A:Windows 7: Corruption in large file transfers to USB drives

are you using a usb2+ device on a usb1 port/cord?
Do you have relevant system(dsk) errors after the corruption?
Are you using windows explorer to copy/move the files to the externals? Or other program?

Second try at having someone help me with a recurrent BSOD. The last time I just formatted the drive and reinstalled Win 7.
This problem has been happening to me ever since I bought the laptop:
I get BSODs transfering large amounts of USB data (10 GB or more), sometimes it's just when I connect my usb mouse and I have a usb hard drive attached, but I've stopped using usb disks because of that. This happened since I bought the laptop, and the motherboard has since been changed (unrelated issue, I think - wouldn't turn on), and the OS reinstalled multiple times. It's also an issue with ubuntu (system hangs), although in linux it happens less often. It happens before updating the OS, as well as after updating it with SP1.

Hi there,

All windows updates it has detected are installed, anti virus is fully up to date.

The BSOD code that has appeared with regularity is 0x0109 with the parameter of 0x01
from my searching this suggests a ram voltage issue

I am looking for someone to give me some help as I have spent several days trying to weed out these bluescreens and am still stuck with the 0x109 bluescreen.

It mostly occurs while doing large file transfers or playing starcraft 2. It has however occurred whilst completely IDLE.

I noticed that when I try to copy over a 4.02GB file from my desktop to my laptop it goes for about 10-15 minutes and then stalls before telling me that the file destination/source no longer exists and cancels the transfer. But if I leave it alone they'll see each other in a few minutes time. This does not effect internet connection or connection with any other network devices, just these two homegroup computers.

I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit on the desktop and Professional 64-bit on the Laptop. Also using a Linksys 160N v3 with DD-WRT firmware.


As a secondary question, do Windows 7 computers running different versions (32-bit vs 64-bit) not see each other in a homegroup? My girlfriend's laptop has never been able to connect to the homegroup and she has a 32-bit Windows 7, though I CAN connect to her through the regular network browsing.

Both problems can directly be traced to homegroup. You can test this by setting up a new network connection using workgroup. If it works (and it should) you can disable Ipv6 and kill homegroup

I've been working on a Vista Home Basic PC that was downloading at full broadband speed 24/7 in normal mode, but not in safe mode.

The responsible agent was either hiding itself as one of several svchost.exe processes or has modified one of them. I have actually stopped it by running Combofix as I needed it back in action so my main purpose in posting is to understand what it was and help others that may encounter the same problem.

Symptoms were a continuous download of data from IP addresses that were often Akamai, Microsoft or similar "legit" sites but several other IP addresses not associated with public facing servers. The download was enough to use up a 2 GB allowance on a 0.5M broadband service in a few days.

PC had Norton Antivirus up to date,windows up to date etc. Malwarebytes antimalware did not find the problem, nor did PrevX CSi or Spybot S&D. Combofix quarantined the following :-

Yup, it's been happening ever since the install. Everytime I perform large transfers or transfer of many files, windows seems to unmount it smack dab in the middle of the operation! And the copying windows doesn't respond to conventional methods of exiting. This has been a problem for a while, and if there are any solutions or wordarounds please do tell or share experiences.

Hi Chazzeromus,

Your device is becoming overloaded/overheated due to the transfer operation and its controller chipset is resetting, This is usually an indicator that it needs replacing before it ceases working altogether

I get the aforementioned BSOD, only in one specific situation, and it happens 100% of the time. Otherwise, I never get BSODs in this computer. The problem happens only when I open Handbrake, and drop an mp4 on it to use as a source. The moment I do that, boom BSOD. It's extremely strange. I have tried reinstalling Handbrake of course to no avail. For now my only solution is to have a Ubuntu VM with Handbrake and run it that way. Any idea what could cause this? Thanks.

I recently got into ripping Blu-ray movies and encoding them. However I have recently had a few blue screens with restarts. I use MakeMKV and it usually runs fine and doesn't give my problems. However, I have had problems encoding the MKV files with Handbrake v0.9.5. Here are my system specs:

Windows 7 64-bit Pro SP1
Intel Core i5-2500K (overclocked to 4 GHz)
8GB Corsair Vengeance RAM (Model CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B)
ASRock Pro3 Gen3 Mobo (latest BIOS update 2.30)
Mushkin Chronos 120GB SSD
Seagate Barracuda 1TB HD
Nvidia GTX 560TI graphics card (slightly overclocked,can't remember speed)
Cooler Master Hyper 212+ CPU cooler

The case also has plenty of fans (7 to be exact). 2 intake fans in the front, 1 intake in the side, 1 intake on the front of the cooler, 1 outtake on the rear of the cooler, and 2 outtake on the back and top. So the tower is staying cool. I'm running AXTU Hardware Monitor during the encoding and temps are staying steady around 50C, which I've heard are normal. The encoding is about 50% now and so far no crashes or spikes in temperature.
I thought the memory may be the culprit and I ran MemTest86. It returned one error after a few hours of running. I have not taken the RAM out to test each module or clean the slots. The timing is set at 9-9-9-24 and I dialed down the speed to 1333 from 1600.
That's all I can think of now but if I forgot something, don't be afraid to ask. Please someone help me!

Firstly, to explain the 100MBit line, I'm now out in South Korea...

My issue is as follows however...

Earlier today the line was installed, and things were running fine... I capped my FTP transfer at 100KB/s and had a bunch of other stuff downloading on Download Accelerator, with the speeds on other DLs around the 400KB/s mark

However after some playing around with my External HD trying to resolve an issue, I lost the speed I had, significantly on my FTP... it yo-yos between 20KB/s and it'll briefly peak at say 71KB/s before dropping back down to 20KB/s again immediately after... before it would transfer solidly at 100KB/s... I know its not an issue with the FTP itself so lets rule that out, I know I've done something to my set up here which has affected the speeds but I don't know what...

I haven't done anything explicitly, it will be the repercussion of another action, but that's where I'm lost... the one notable indicator that things had changed was that my Sygate firewall was now flashing a box telling me that it was blocking svchost.exe and NDO (?), two system services... I uninstalled my firewall thinking that would make a difference but it hasn't... the same thing happened earlier in the evening briefly after the box flashed up but I overcame it unwittingly, however I can't do the same now, and the old 'Repair' command isn't working on the connection...

Help would be appreciated...

If you updated there should be a windows.old folder, but did you format the new drive? if so that is called a clean install.

Now to import settings etc (which I dont recommend) run the easy transfer wizard. It will transfer most but not all. You will still have to re-install the apps, but the prefs may be saved.

We can be of more use if you tell us about your upgrade.

hi all, i'm in change of a small part of my school's website, and my schedule is so very busy, that i would really like to be able to make changes to the website from home. However, my school has closed all ports, and the server is not ftp. I was wondering if it was possible to write a batch file (or otherwise) that would run every so often on the server and pull files from another server (eg, my personal website, or some free hosting thing) onto the website drive? i would appreciate any ideas you people have about this. can it be done? and if so, how? thanks

If you can connect both to the same network, you can enable file sharing and copy the files over.

You can copy files on the old pc to cd or other removable media and use tht media to copy them to the new pc

If you want to save all your files and settings, you can use the XP Files and Settings Transfer (FAST) wizard to create an image of them and save to cd or other removable media. This is a good guide to using the FAST wizard. Just be sure you have an up-to-date antivirus before you re-instate them!

Hi,

I just got a new laptop because my old PC crashed. I had someone come out and get my files off my old hard drive, he had to put them on my husbands MAC for storage. Now I want to put my those files on my new HP laptop. I have a HP personal media drive, but can't figure out how to transfer files from the MAC. Did I get the wrong devise for the job? If so what do I need?

thanks

A:File Transfers

If you have a network, make sure both computers are on it, share the Mac folder with your files on it, then at the PC copy the files from the Mac to your PC.

You should also be able to burn the files to a CD then use that to carry them to your computer.

I'm not familiar with Macs, but you might be able to use a USB drive to copy the files.

If none of these is an option, you can sign up for online file storage, upload the files from the Mac, then download them to your computer.

What does this mean?
What would ENABLING it do in terms of performance?
 

A:32-Bit File Transfers??

The ATA interface transfers data 16 bits at a time (we had 16-bit PCs when the standard came out). Since modern PCs are 32-bit then it is more worthwhile to take two of those 16-bit chunks and transfer them to the CPU or memory together.

It will give you a small performance boost if you enable that option.

Hello,

I've searched the internet and I can't find a solution for this.

I have several USB 3.0 external hard drives and they all seem to exhibit this problem. First, I had a Western Digital MyPassport SE 1TB with USB 3.0. Transfers of 1GB or less are usually fine, but once it gets higher than that, the drive disconnects. It disconnects before the transfer is complete, usually disconnecting about 5 seconds after transfer begins. I thought something was wrong with the hard drive, so I had it RMAd. New drive came back and still didn't work.

This year's Black Friday gave me a Western Digital Elements 1TB also with USB 3.0 capabilities. Same as before: files bigger than 1GB will not transfer. And yesterday I was graced with a Western Digital MyPassport 2TB but unfortunately the same problem occurs.

For all of these drives, I can transfer large files through USB 2.0 connections, no problem. I would be happy with this but... I was really looking forward to using my computer's USB 3.0 connection for the faster speeds. I've tried updating drivers for the port but I still have the problem. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Here are links to the hard drives:

Hello & let me thank everyone now for their time.

This last week I was told that burning data files to DVD's should be done in the Vista master fmt not open / live. So I lost 30 hours on a Vebatim 4.7g DVD disc.

Since then I have meticolusly used the Vista mast fmt & burning icons etc, finished every write to the Magnavox 4.7g +R DVD & today, Viola! no can see the files with 3.44g free on 1 of 2 disc I'm burning to!?!?

"This is eating my lunch, give me Unix & a tape drive anytime!"

By the pattern I just quoted above I copied all the #2 disc files onto a new dir on the hard driive. I added what was missing then did a mass copy onto a new DVD+R. Worked, kind of until I tried to add some other files.

O well here's the solution, kinda.

Favorite Movie Quote "Information Please!"

A:Windows DVD file transfers.

I would recommend against using "sessions" on any disc media. It's just asking for problems. If you want to save data to CD or DVD try a few brands. See which work best in your burner. Then use:
dvdinfopro.com - Home Page

to see who made them. Once you know the discs will burn well, get spindles of 50 or 100 cheap at one of the reputable online stores. Also I recommend burning data discs using Imgburn

I used to fool around with "using CD as a floppy" type of stuff like InCD. You're lucky if you can read the stuff back on the same machine awhile later, never mind on a different machine. Even burn erasable discs as if they were CDR or DVDR. Your chances of being able to read the data back off are much higher.

With Imgburn you need to format the erasable disc as CDR or DVDR the first time you write to it. After that just do a "quick erase" before reusing.

Hi everybody

I have a simple question that will probably yield a simple answer, but it has had me scratching my head...

I have a desktop pc which I use as a server. I have two laptops that access the files on the server through mapped network drives, simple enough.

When I move files from one location to another on the server the file transfers are quick. When I use the mapped network drives on the laptop to move the same files they are much much slower.

I cant understand why this would be the case. Are the files stored in RAM on the laptop with the remote access or is there some other reason. How can I get around this issue?

Many thanks in advance.

Andi

A:File transfers slow

I assume your laptops access the server via 802.11g. The theoretical speed there is 54Mbps/sec - but in reality it is less because of the overhead. Compare that to the speed you can transfer files inside the server. That is limited by the speed of your HDDs and depends whether you go from one HDD to another or within the same HDD. But it will be a lot faster in any case. Figure that the disk transfer rate is 10 times faster than 802.11g - that is an approximate number and depends highly on the type of disk (e.g. Rpm) and where the from and to folders are located.

If your old laptop has usb then a pendrive would suffice for backing up and transfer of your old files/ favourites/ email contacts list etc.

If its just word files and favourites you should be able to do this via floppies, you can use a program such as diskspan to move files that are larger than 1.44mb.

so the question is how can i make sygate let the information pass as quickly as it normally would without sygate on, and not to take all the memory on my computer

Huh. Well, assuming you're behind a firewall between you and the internet, I'd just turn off your personal firewall temporarily for the file transfer, then put it back up again.

I find myself having to move many large data files (telemetry data) across our ethernet network with Windows systems. It takes forever to move 50GByte files from one PC to another using wintdows Network Neighborhood.

Is there such a utility that can move these large data files much faster than Windows drag n drop stuff? I read an article where one organization transferred an entire 4.2GB DVD movie over the internet in 10 minutes using standard ethernet protocols. Why can't we all move files like this?

Any thoughts?

I was in the middle of a large 150gb transfer from one drive to another. as an afterthought, I saw small 50mb file I wanted to transfer from a different drive origin, to the same drive destination as in the bigger transfer. These are all serial ata drives, with latest drivers, though some are connected via usb, some are internal. Anywho.. My second transfer looked like it was going to go across pretty quick, and then it froze all together.. for like 7-8 minutes, during which time, the other big transfer looked to be hung. Frustrated, I tried to cancel the second transfer. It reported it would have that done for me in 5 seconds, but then 3 minutes later, still trying to cancel.

So I started this post, and just seconds ago, it managed to cancel itself. I am wondering if there is a good way to force it to stop, or if there is problem with my system that I can proactively address. I have never been a huge fan of the way Microsoft handles multiple transfers.. or even single transfers for that matter.. What can be done?
