Preferred Solution: SD Card semaphore Timeout?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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,

Hi, I use Windows XP Pro and I am getting this error message in the system event log everytime I log in. Now I only get one, but just recently there are like 3 or 4 in a row many times during the initial log in to the internet network.

I have tried to search everywhere and google and yahoo for an answer but never was able to get a clear solution.

Luckily, I am able to get online just fine but the idea of this showing up constantly bothers me. It was fine, for about 4 months it stopped showing up after I did no changes to my system but its now back.

Also for a while I was getting something about user cancelled something but I have not seen that in a long time.

I tried to unplug the modem and cables to reset the IP , but that doesnt help. Also not that my service uses a Dynamic IP and I cant switch to static IP.

Its called Event: 1003 Source: DHCP

Your computer was not able to renew its address from the network (from the DHCP Server) for the Network Card with network address ------------. The following error occurred:
The semaphore timeout period has expired. . Your computer will continue to try and obtain an address on its own from the network address (DHCP) server.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Good Morning All,
 
I am having issues installing Windows updates, they have been failing upon install for the past 3-4 months.  I get the error code 80070079, "The Semaphore timeout has expired".  So I tried backing up my data to just wipe it and reload the OS, the backup fails as well, same error message.  Then I tried moving files manually to an external drive and that as well timeouts on the larger files.  I have searched the Internet and it many people seem to have this issue and it relates to the network adapter, but I am not trying to do anything over the network (Updates are already downloaded just waiting to install), so I feel it is something else.  Does anyone know of a fix or possible solution?  I searched semaphore through the registry and there are a lot of entries, but not sure if i need to change any of them or not?
 
Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

hello again...

dang this thing is a pain!!

new issue today, trying to save a tiny .rtf file to external USB drive, and get "semaphore timeout period has expired" message and have to save to local drive instead. also get the message if i drag and drop into the desired location.

perhaps related to the issue i occasionally have: the machine loses connection to the external drive and either the folder shows empty (it's not!) or doesn't show as even being connected. little blue light on the drive will sometimes go out, sometimes not, but still no access...

EDIT: i have two verbatim USB drive attached... one or the other of them will occasional disappear from This PC and when i look at device manager there is an error on that drive. i disconnect and reconnect and the drives show up and the error in device manger goes away... there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason as to why this happens. when it does and i try to save something to the drive, that's when i get the "semaphore timeout period has expired"

i have tried to update drivers using windows search online and it always says i have the best drivers loaded....

the drives have been checked for errors and windows reports none... there is still quite a bit of available space on them (80+ gigs on each) and when they are connected and live, i can access files with no problem... it just decides to seemingly drop the drive randomly...

thanks for any help...

I maintain some software that makes a tcp socket connection to a different piece of software and sends data back and forth (pretty basic stuff there). We use boost asio to handle reading and writing of data over the socket connection. We have a client that
has deployed this software on Windows7. The client has been having issues with our software not being able to maintain a reliable socket connection. One thing I have noticed is that quite often the networking callback are receiving the error: The semaphore
timeout period has expired.

This error is not coming from anywhere in our code (or the boost code). I've done some research on it and I found a Microsoft Knowledge base article on this error for Windows XP (support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/325487). I've seen a few people ask questions about
this error on Windows7, but they're all in regards to moving files to different drives, nothing regarding network connections.

What does this error mean in regards to Windows7? Does the knowledge base article I mentioned still apply to Windows7?

Greetings,

My environment is: Win'7, Visual Studio 2010, C#

There is another message on these forums with almost exactly the same title. It's closed, so I couldn't post there.

I'm getting that exact same response from Win'7 in a try /catch scheme.

i.e., "...The semaphore timeout period has expired..."

I am quite confident that the serial port is really there, as he will open and will transfer data from time to time.

It's the whims of the hardware that have me so confused.

The exact same code worked perfectly last night. In fact, it has worked for weeks.

The statement which I believe is causing the error is...
TheUsersChosenSerialPort.Open();​

Much like the other thread mentioned, the port is a BlueTooth connector, and Win'7 is reporting him okay, and so on.

I welcome responses from those with useful knowledge on this topic.

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;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?

How do I fix that?

Are you using an Internet Security Suite or ZoneAlarm?
This may also be thr problem....
This can happen when the total path length of the source file
and the total path length of the destination file are greater than a given
value, 128 I believe. When this occures in windows, it results in a Path

Is there a way to increase the DVD ROM drive read-timeout value? I have some DVD's that are not recognized (shows no media present), until I eject & re-insert the DVD several times.
Alternatively, is there a way for Windows XP to force-read the media (DVD) without having to eject/re-insert?

I think it has something to do with how long the DVD drive tries to access the DVD before giving up.

I'm using WinXP Pro pre SP1 and IE lastest version. For the past few months I seem to fail on my first attempt at going to a web page. Most of the time pressing the refresh button gets the page to display. Therefore I'm thinking that IE is giving up too quickly before the DNS server returns the IP address to get to the page. Am I misunderstanding this? Is there something I can do? It's especially annoying when I fill out forms of multiple pages and one of pages fails to display, so I have to start all over again.

Hi everyone,

I am having trouble accessing a certain webpage (www.enjoytheshowvideo.com). When I attempt to access it I get a "Cannot find server or DNS Error". I have done some research and found it has nothing to do with the two servers that host my files and that it has something to do with the page not loading fast enough and thus timing out, giving me the error. Is there any way to make it so that it won't time out? Maybe change a setting or something?

I don't think it's the emulation software becaus emy other sattelite office is having the same exact problem and uses the same routers and emulation software. Seems to me that it is a timeout problem. What do you guys think?

Hi all, I have found that I can't connect to Facebook as the request times out every single time I try. I know the site isn't down as I tried it on downforeveryoneorjustme.com.
I confess I did something stupid the night before last, which was the last time I was able to access Facebook. Someone sent my friend an abusive message to her facebook email, and I pasted what looked like a secret facebook email/user number into my browser to try and find who did it... a message warned me of a trick and that it didn't require authentication but my hand was faster than my brain and I let it through. >.<
 
I don't know if that was the cause of the problem but thanks in advance for any help you can give me..
 
 
I've tried running MalwareBytes to get any infection (2 items quarantined to do with PUP), tried to get into my router but any username and passwords I try don't work (I reset to factory setting but the ones on the router don't work), and tried to see if it was a firewall issue but didn't really know what to do.
 
I looked at similar topics but can't get into my router like it said.  I tried tracert www.facebook.com and the request timed out.
I have pinged Facebook at the two IPs I got from the tracert results -  ping 74.119.78.121 said that of 4 packets sent 4 were received and 0 lost. Ping 202.40.161.110 said Timed out.

I fixed it now, it turned out to be a DNS issue. Here's what I did if anyone else has this.

Sat Sep 22 09:19:59 2007 UPnP renew entry 255.255.255.255 <-> 70.78.XX.XXX:16712 <-> 192.168.0.XXX:16712 TCP timeout:-1 'utorrent'

I also get this message with Msn Messenger and Orb. Does the UPNP still work or is it screwed up in my dlink DIR-625?

Thanks

I have a user that is having difficulties with his Outlook 2007. For some reason, when he goes away from his desk for a period of time, on his return, Outlook has lost connection to our Exchange server.

The password can be entered, but prompts that it's incorrect, and the only solution is to restart Outlook.

Can anyone shed any light on this please?

Thanks

Hello!

I have recently beginning to have timeout issues with my home network, it's coming about every 30min, but not very often on my girlfriends PC. She only browses Facebook, but did not do it last time I got this error.

The network becomes unavaible for 20~ seconds, then it's back up again, and this is what I found from Event Viewer.
"Name resolution for the name ssl.gstatic.com timed out after none of the configured DNS servers responded."
It's not only gstatic that show up, others aswell.

When this occured last time, I was playing an online game, no browser open or anything else, just the game (Also counting processes, only windows system processes + game running).

Our router doesn't say anything at the time of the DNS error, but if you think it's related, this is from the router log:
These are the only ones that show up in the log. [Model: NETGEAR CG3100]

Code:

Issue1: IP packet w/MC or BC SRC addr
Issue2: Illegal TCP header
Any ideas or thoughts? Feel free to ask for more information.

EDIT: It seems to work perfectly with wireless network, still same problems wired.
 

A:Timeout issue.

Wasn't too happy with that edit, it's happening on wireless aswell.

It has been reduced since I manually input my ISP's DNS, but still not completely gone.
I've also tried Googles open DNS, but didn't change anything.

Hi, first off I guess I need to give as much information about everything so you can draw your own conclusions with understanding the entire situation.

I am an Administrator on a discussion board hosted by Boardnation. They recently went through a server change and some upgrading. Once they moved our site, most of the members were getting the old 404 error message but that was short lived. Some of the members are on dial-up, one on RoadRunner and the rest on DSL such as myself. The guy on RR had a little trouble for a couple of days where it would take roughly 15 minutes for the site to open and load. That soon straightened itself out also. Now, everyone can access the board(s) with no problem with one exception. I am that exception??.I cannot access anything related to Boardnation period. I get an ?operation timed out?.? Error message.

I am running XP pro and Mozilla Firefox. I have tried accessing Boardnation stuff through Mozilla, IE6, Opera, Netscape and maybe one other. I have maxed out all the settings for timeout times and the sort in each browser that I tried. I even manipulated the settings in my MS configuration. I?ve cleaned out all cache and cookies several times over but yet nothing will allow me to access these Boardnation sites.

It would almost seem that I am ?stuck? in the old database or something. It seems I?ve ran into something similar before (years ago) but the problem was short lived. This has been going on for over a week now and I?m getting ... Read more

For the past 2 months or so, I have had a problem where at random intervals (anywhere from 30 minutes to 6 hours so far), I am no longer able to connect to the Internet. I use Firefox 1.0.6, and eventually my Internet connection just dies. My roommates (all connected to the same Linksys Router) do not lose their connection. If I try to access a webpage, I will get a Timeout error. I can't check email, connect with an instant message program, or web browse (tried loading IE after it happens, no success with that browser either). I have tried shutting down Spyware Doctor 3.2, and Eset Nod32 Antivirus to see if they might be causing the problem, but I have not had success with that either. My connection will stay down until I reboot my computer. After rebooting, I can connect without trouble until the problem shows up again. I have fully updated Spyware Doctor 3.2, and Eset Nod32 Antivirus and run complete scans, but nothing is showing up. It is rather annoying, as I usually have at least 6 browser windows open at a time, and I hate to lose all of them by rebooting. The only thing I can think of is it seems to be about the same time I updated from Firefox 1.0.5 to 1.0.6.

Also, when I was watching a baseball game on mlb.com (Internet stream), I got the timeout problem again (I was unable to access any webpages or check my email), but the baseball game continued to stream to my computer. As it was a live game, it could not have been built up in cache.

Does anybody have any ... Read more

Check the settings on your network card on the power management tab. Windows may be shutting the nic off.

A:Connection Timeout

Try to clear your Resolver Cache. Go to Start and then Run. Type cmd in the box and press enter. At the command prompt type in ipconfig /flushdnsyou should receive a message stating you have success. Close the window and try accessing CC again.

We use some production software at work, which uses internet explorer as a portal. We use this to clock on, but we have problems, which our IT department say is a 'timeout' problem. When we try to clock in, first thing in the morning, we get a message about a 'trace error', which we have to click ok, and the browser shuts down. We have to open up the browser again, and start again. No big problem you might say, but frustrating when you are trying to clock in on time. Our IT department say it is a browser time out problem on the touch screen, and nothing can be done, as the system is on all night. Surely, there must be a solution?
