Preferred Solution: BSOD when i plug my USB Drive

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.)

Hi

Have tried 2 difference flash drives, and and get a blue screen, (BSOD)

USB works ok when I use a USB wireless modem but not with the flash drive.

I have updated the BIOS, tried system restore, chkdsk /p /r and still no good.

Hi everyone,

I am in need of someone helping me to find a solution cause I have found nothing at all to fix it.
The issue is that every time I plug in my Seagate Freeagent Go external hard drive I get BSOD a few moments after. This only started happening yesterday after it froze, it was plugged into a media player and randomly froze. I often use it with media players, although yesterday it was plugged into a new one.

Over about 10 BSOD's it had shown me 3-4 different errors. One being ntfs.sys, with the description being something along the lines of "Something has tried to write itself to a read-only file". Sorry it's not exactly accurate, but it's along those lines.

if anyone can share some info on it or maybe links to fix it I would be extremely grateful.

Here are my specs:
Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (6.1, Build 7601)

A:Windows 7 - BSOD when i plug my External Hard drive

Hi -

24 BSODs in the last ~24 hours w/ a few different bugchecks; many listing ntfs.sys = NTFS File System.

Try the external HDD in another system - see if it works.

If there is backup software for the ext HDD installed - remove it.

Plug the HDD in and run HDD diags - SeaTools for DOS LONG test (boot from CD) - http://www.techsupportforum.com/2828431-post7.html

Is the ext HDD formatted FAT32 or NTFS?

Hello all, This is an ASUS P5P43TD-Pro socket 775 Q8400, latest BIOS release. Works normally in all known other aspects. Windows 7 Enterprise, x64. 16GB memory. BIOS settings all "auto", i.e. no OC or anything of the sort. On-board LAN, Serial, parallel, IEEE all disabled. NVidia 220 video card, also set for defaults. There are six internal SATA ports (native ICH10R), with five fixed internal drives connected. The sixth port goes to an external SATA tray intended for hot-plugging bare drives. The BIOS does not distinguish between fixed and removable drives as some newer BIOSs permit. All you get to set is IDE emulation or AHCI. The drives are all set for AHCI to enable hot-swapping. The SATA driver in Windows is the Intel RST recommended by ASUS for this board. I have not allowed it to update to more recent versions. All this stuff basically works, but there's one screwy problem I can't seem to resolve. Out of the four drives that typically get hot-plugged into the external bay, three of them work exactly as you'd expect them to. The OS detects them and mounts them with a drive letter (H:, which is the next in line). No problem. ONE of the four drives causes this weird problem where it actually causes a dismount of one of the fixed drives. Not only a dismount, but it disappears from the list of devices too. And to make it even stranger, the new drive mounts with the correct drive letter (H), even though it knocks off the drive designated E! A... Read more

A:Hot-plug external drive = forcibly dismounts internal drive. Why??

That's a first time hearing an issue like that, I am puzzled as well, I'd look at BIOS settings and drivers as cause or bad drive electronics on the ONE.

Is there something different about that one?

I would have your co. pay for another drive in that situation and probably perform destruction procedures on the one not working, or DoD procedures to wipe it if it's under warranty before RMA'n it.

Hi
I've been having some BSOD lately when I plug in a usb memory stick. At first it could happen during games and at start up.

I first thought it was the program "magicdisk" that was the problem. One of the BSOD blamed it on a system file used by that program, but after Uninstall I still get BSOD.
I tried to revert back to an old system image, but that didn't help. And it also added "magicdisk" back, but this time I couldn't uninstall it. It said it was already uninstalled, but the registry files was still there. So I tried to clean out any remaining files and drivers from the program.

I have followed the posting instructions and attached a crash dump.
I would be very grateful if someone could take a look at them and see if they can spot the problem.

Hi, I was experiencing an error 0x80070079 report when i was transferring a 13GB file from my computer to a usb drive through usb3.0 with a lightning bolt next to the ss symbol. I tried to format my drive, and too failed to succeed. Then i did some experiments, first, try to transfer the same file through the same port to a different drive, the result was a success, no problem there. Then try to first format then transfer the same file to the drive previous experiencing error with another usb plug with only the ss symbol, the result was a success too, then I repluged the same drive back to the one with ss lightning bolt, the problem occurred again. So whats the deal here?? are there anyway to fix this?? is it a windows 10 problem??

hope someone can help.

Hello

I'm not very good at computer hardware but decided to try to move a hard drive from my old computer to a new one. After examining everything I have 2 questions (sorry for possibly stupid questions).

There are no brackets (not sure that's the correct word) that could hold it up in the housing. The computer came with one set, but they are way too small, and the old computer's are too big to fit in the new housing. Is it a problem to keep the hard drive loose (diagonally) inside the housing (aside from if you're physically moving the computer around of course)?

The, from what I understand power supply, in the old computer has 1 yellow, 1 red, 2 black and 1 orange cable, but the new computer's only available cable doesn't have any orange. Is this a problem? I've read in some places that the orange one often isn't used by the hard drive.

Thanks a lot!

A:pc freezes when i plug in cd drive

Sounds to me like your optical drive may not be working.

One of the symptoms can be interrupting the boot process, as the system tries to identify a component that is not working properly.

Try temporarily connecting it to a different system and you'll know.

You are running a Lenovo Product ID (PID) on an MSI board.
This makes your installation counterfeit.
Troubleshooting a counterfeit installation is useless as it is not known what has been modified to your system.
A counterfeit installation contains heavily modified code which causes the system to behave in unexpected ways.
For this reason, analyzing counterfeit systems is unreliable and most analysts won't try it.

Code:
OS Configuration: Standalone Workstation
OS Build Type: Multiprocessor Free
Registered Owner: Moustakias
Registered Organization:
Product ID: 00426-OEM-8992662-00497 <-- Lenovo PID on MSI board
Original Install Date: 3/8/2014, 12:26:07 PM
System Boot Time: 12/21/2015, 1:25:33 PM

I recommend to install a genuine copy of Windows.
If, after you have installed a genuine copy of Windows, you still get BSOD's we'll be happy to assist you.

About a month ago, I started to have a problem with plug and play support... at least I think that's the problem. Ok, so here's what happens. I plug in a USB device... let's say my PSP. Normally, it would show up in My Computer with it's nice PSP icon I customized and it would have a drive letter. Well at one point it stopped showing custom labels and icons, so it would just say "Removable Drive (F:)" and show the default icon. This didn't bother me TOO much, so I just ignored it. Now it doesn't even show up in My Computer. I open Run and type F: and it throws me this error,

Quote:




"This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Folder Options control panel."




Yes, I've already looked at the association for "Drive", and I've already set "Open" as the default. No luck. I've even enabled the super-insecure autorun... The CD, DVD, and Hard Drives all work fine. The only way I can get the USB drives open is to type "explorer f:" or "explorer g:" etc. into Run. When I'm in the drives, they don't have their icons or labels... so they all say "Removable Drive," and when I look at the properties of the drive, it says the file system is RAW, which I know to be wrong (my PSP is FAT32, my USB HD is NTFS, etc.)

Is your device getting enough electricity?

If it gets it power from the usb port of your computer, then it is possible that it isn't getting enough power (even though it used to). If your USB device has it's own power supply, use it. If your USB device has a second usb cable, use it too, along with the first USB cable. You must insert both usb cables into your computer within a second or two of each other.

If none of that helps, then try the devices in another computer. If it works in another computer then that narrows down the troubleshooting to your first computer. If it does not work in the second computer, then the focus should be on the USB device.

You don't say what brand of computer you have, but Dell's have a history of not supplying enough power to drive USB devices, as well as having other USB issues. The 'cure' is to install a USB expansion card and use those USB ports instead.

At least those are a few ideas to get you started.

The model that ships with the embedded MMC flash drive does not support a hard drive -- the only internal storage possible is the eMMC.

Hi there,

Having a problem with new external hard drive. Running Win XPpro on a laptop. Internal h/d is 30gig with just under 1g free, ram 756mb. New external Hard drive is Western Digital 160gig and connected to laptop via usb2. Managed to format and allocate drive letter (Z) and set partition but when re connecting to laptop the system does not see the drive. Can locate it via device manager under usb but system crashes when using computer management-disc management. Have tested the external drive on another laptop - Win2000 and all works fine, system recognises the drive and can save files to it etc so figure we set it up right.
Tried to re format the ex drive on XP laptop but system crashed.
Also tried to connect to intended laptop via firewire incase its a usb issue but same problem occurs. External drive is set to master. Unfortunately don't have the set up disc for WinXP.

Hard drive was bought so we can shift a bunch of media type files and programmes etc to it to free up internal drive which is maxed out.

Any advice or help will be greatly appreciated!!

Thanx!

I tried to do the same on another computer for a friend,
The computer is Win 7 pro. The device we're trying to map is a plug in disc array. Can't tell you much about the array, except that he has to map in at bootup time and provide credentials. The array's username is the same as Win 7's, but the pw is not the same (so, in the log below, I try it both passwords, the very last attempt was using the windows pw (whose only difference is an initial cap). On top of that, it looks like the mapping requires an 8.3 format. The top level folder on the array is "benchmark1" and I took a wild stab with the NET USE and I think it's "benchm~1" ...not entirely for sure.....
 
so I created a cmd file for this to run at startup.
 
timeout /t 2
net use n: /delete
net use n: \\NASE6A562\benchmark01 /user:nwhite ***PW*** /persistent:yes
net use z: /delete

A:Can't map plug in drive using script on win7 pro

I realize this should have been posted under win7. The moderator should move it, if it's important.
 
However the underlying problem is probably not version specific. Although, if I knew for sure, I'd probably be smart enough to fix this.
 
It's been a couple of weeks. Can someone help me, please?

Hi guys

basically im building my own pc, like new motherboard, RAM, graphics card case the lot. but i like my 500gb IDE hard drive and the mother board is sata compatible,. i have a cable converter for this but im wondering if my windows 7 OS will just run on the new mother board or not?

Thanks :D

A:Can i just plug my old hard drive into my new motherboard using my win 7 OS?

Your old hard drive will be recognised as a hard drive, but windows 7 wont be able to use it, as the windows drivers were for your last computer, so the motherboard chipset, sound , LAN, and graphics card were all set for your last system.
If you have a spare hard drive back up all your own data first, then connect it to your computer.
It may work with a default display resolution but will then probably complain about the sound hardware, lan, chipset etc. You may be able to load these drivers from your install disks.

Hi their first of all my computer spec:

I have a thermaltake supranoVB1000SWS case, Asus P5KC motherboard, windows 7 ultimate 64bit, Intel Quad core Q6600 CPU, 2GB corsair XMS DDR2 800mhz RAM, 1TB Samsung spinpoint hard-drive, DVD-drive

what it is, I bought my new case ( the thermaltake supranoVB1000SWS) a couple of weeks ago, so obviously I had to swap all my hardware into it from my older case.
Everything worked perfectly in my older case, its when I swapped everything to my new case that I started having problems with my DVD drive.
When I connect the IDE and power cable upto it, and switch my computer on their is no power getting to the drive, well no lights light up, flicker or do anything.
But once i turn my computer off and remove the IDE cable, but leave the power cable in, the DVD drive powers up, the draw opens and closes like normal, it only doesnt come on when the IDE cable is plugged in.

The DVD drive is set to master, this is IDE
My hard-drive is SATA so thats automatically goes to master.

The dvd drive is not detected in the BIOS ( revision 1203)

I have checked the IDE connector on the motherboard its-self and none of the pins or damaged or bent etc, I have even tried a new IDE cablr but the same happens.

Please can you help me thank you.

Had a similar problem moving an optical drive to the secondary IDE port on new computer a while ago. Had to change the jumper on the drive from Master to Cable Select (CS) to get it to work. It might be worth trying on your computer. You would need an IDE cable that supports CS with gray and black connectors for the drives.

Hi,

I have an Asrock k7nf2-raid motherboard & 2 sata hard drives. 1 is internal with windows xp installed, this one works fine.

The second hd is in a removable rack. This drive works fine until I remove it using "safely remove hardware". If the drive is removed in this way, whether it is re-plugged when the pc is on or off, it is not recognised by the operating system or the bios.

The only way to get this drive to work again is to cold boot the pc a few times until the drive is eventually detected, even then, windows tends to freeze when the drive is accessed.
After the next few boots, windows stabilizes & everything then runs ok.
In the mobo manual, it does say that the mobo does not support sata hot plugging, I but if this is so, then why do I get the option to "safely remove" this drive?
and if I cannot use this drive in this way, then why does all the above happen. surely the drive should be recognised on the next boot.

I also believe that nf2 chipsets do not support hotplug, but nf3 & 4 do. So again, why does this drive show up in the safely remove hardware group.

I have tried new cables. Swapped the rack for one out of another pc & tried a different hd, always with the same results.

Has anyone any idea why this keeps happening?
Thanks for any replies

Rob.

I have a 500 Gb spinning drive which has Win7 installed, and was working fine until after I cloned it to a new SSD. When I cloned the drive, the HD was Drive 0 and the SSD was Drive 1; I used Macrium Reflect. Also, the SSD was installed in a NewmodeUS optical drive caddy (so from the BIOS perspective, it looks just like another hard drive, not a USB device). At the end of the process, there were some number of error messages (1, at least, from Macrium, and another from some Dell guardian program that pops up occasionally), and after that, clicking icons didn't do anything. After pulling the plug and rebooting, Windows partially started and then told me that my copy of Windows wasn't genuine, and I just had to turn the power off. After trying again, I took out the HD, and the SDD booted up find and everything is spiffy. I could just throw away the HD, but I'd like to use it.

I assume the problem connected to cloning is that I then had two disks claiming to be active and in generally claiming to be the same, so Windows freaked out. I can put the drive in the optical drive caddy and after booting up, I can plug in the caddy (it just slides in to the slot and clicks in): but is this dangerous? Or should I buy a USB drive enclosure and attach it that way (would that be less dangerous?) I assume that the drivers are installed the first time I plug the enclosure in even when there is no drive in it, but I don't know that that is so, so does anyone know? I'm hoping to avoid challeng... Read more

We have a plug& play floppy drive. Not it won't let me copy to it. It keeps trying to format the disks whether they are old or new. We bought a new one. It still does it.
The device manager recognizes it. We have windows xp.
 

A:Plug & play floppy drive

You may have put the ribbon on upside down. I think the red strand should be on the left of the drive as you are looking at it from the back, in any case, the red strand on floppies is on the opposite side of the drive compared to IDE drives.

I started a thread in the System Building and Upgrading section but realized it should be here, sorry about that !  Maybe a mod could move it here?  Anyway here goes:
 
I built this system about a week ago, at first things seemed ok until I started adding the peripherals.  I am a flight sim nut so the Track IR 5 and Saitek X52 are important to me.  Its worth noting that I am aware there are issues with some of the X52 drivers (Saitek support is awful) and I have been using it for years on my old system so know my way around - I used the same software that was working on my old Duo Core.  At this point in time I do not the X52 or Track IR connected. 
 
There were no problems until last night, I spent most of the weekend installing Falcon BMS, IL-2 Cliffs of Dover and Il-2 Sturmovik, all of which ran with no issues including the Track IR and x52.  I dont recall installing anything that might have affected this but I know I added utilities like CCleaner, Audacity, Xedit. but I left my pc on for a while and when I came back it had rebooted, I noticed my Track IR was no longer showing up  in device manager.  I unplugged it, plugged it back in and there was the first BSOD.  After rebooting I tried again in a different port (tried both USB 2 and USB 3) but it blue screens almost immediatly when I plug it in, regardless of which port I plug into.
 
Here are the specs, requested files also attached.  Actually I take... Read more

Hi i have a galaxy s4 and recently my computer has started give me a bsod and says security kernel check fail..anyone think they can help with this?

A:BSOD everytime i plug my phone in

Hi

All your BSOD seems to be caused by InCDRec.sys which is a component of Nero Backitup.


Code:
BugCheck 139, {3, fffff88018d2c4e0, fffff88018d2c438, 0}
*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for InCDRec.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for InCDRec.sys
Probably caused by : InCDRec.sys ( InCDRec+18cb )


I would recommend uninstalling Nero 10 and all it's components completely from the system. For writing discs you can use excellent Ashampoo Burning Studio Free which is far better than Nero.

Hello guys,

Recently my brother returned from a trip to Shanghai, and he brought me this new mouse. I think it's one of those cheap chinese "gaming" mice, judging from the fact that it has no brand and nothing written on it.
I plugged it in on the USB port (tried both 2.0 and 3.0) and it immediately gave me a BSOD after trying to install the device drivers. I tried this several times, almost everytime it gave a BSOD, except this one time I got it working, but when I unplug and plug again, it goes into BSOD again.

I'm also attaching the dump file. Any help is greatly appreciated.

hello........my friend has given me a 128MB portable item (it is the size of a keyring), that you plug into your usb point and it is supposed to come up on your computer as another drive. I haven't used it yet but can you tell me if I can use it to load and store games (as my hard-drive is almost full)..........or should I buy a second hard-drive? also for a beginner, would you suggest I buy an external hard drive, rather than an internal one (as then I would have to fit it)
Thanks
 

A:portable usb plug in 128mb/hard-drive

You are not going to get much of a game on a 128mb USB keyring drive, its excellent for transporting files, powerpoint presentations etc, but not for games.

I would recommend getting a second hard drive, internal (cheaper) and generally faster. They are not hard to fit and prices are very low at present.

If you post your machine specs here you will get advice on what to go for and also on where the best deals are.

Folks,

Here's the background:

Computer has an Asus M5A88-M motherboard, with an AMD FX-8350 cpu. It had been running Win7/64. It has two harddrives, an SSD Samsung 850 evo (C drive) and a WD Black spinner (D drive). In Win7 I was unable to get the SSD into AHCI mode. (The mobo has Sata ports 1-4 as either IDE or AHCI or RAID, and ports 5-6 as IDE. I have Bluray ODD in port 6.)

I decided to upgrade to Win 10. Prior to the upgrade, I disconnected the D drive, which shouldn't have anything on it but games and some personal docs and pics. I performed the upgrade with just C connected.

All was good.

I successfully changed my C drive to AHCI mode. Rebooted several times. All was still good.

By "all is good", I mean EVERYTHING seemed good, and the internet/networking worked.

This morning, I decided to plug in the D drive back into SATA port 2. Upon booting, there was a yellow exclamation symbol over the network connection near the task tray and I had no network at all. I used a usb stick to upload the latest Win10 Network driver for the mobo's Realtek 8111E network interface. The yellow error symbol remained.

I tried various troubleshooting techniques (safe boot with network, limited services, etc.) and nothing changed.

The network switch shows connectivity and the port on the rear of the computer shows a solid green light and flashing yellow light. That indicates Gigabit speed connection and data input/output. This is with the yellow exclamation symbol and no ne... Read more

A:If I plug in my D hard drive, I lose my network?!?!

Additional information:

- I've just powered down, disconnected the D drive, booted and again all is good...

- Powered down again and connected D drive to Sata port 5 (an IDE drive). Booted up...and all is good.

The problem seems to be using D drive (which is PURELY a data drive as far as I know) in the AHCI mode. Looking at Disk Management, the D drive seems to be an MBR style.

Note that the D drive is totally accessible when it is in the Sata 2 port (AHCI port). There is nothing wrong with accessing or using D drive. The only symptom is total network dysfunctionality. (Sata port 5 allows networking and D drive access.)

I'd like to use it in one of the AHCI sata ports (1-4).

Still stumped...

Hi all, Some time ago my Ideapad U530 Touch fell from my desk. It hit perfectly on the ac power supply plug-in and it broke the male connector on the cord and it appears that the female connector on the laptop is damaged as well. The pictures attached are the best I could do. The plug on the laptop may or may not be ruined, I'm not sure but I think I remember a small metallic part that broke off of it. The "damage" that is visible in the pictures looks to me like just scratches on the paint/color but I'm not sure.  Like I said this was a while ago and I'm just now getting around to fix it. I was looking for parts just now, first for the cord to see if that would be all that I needed, but I was also looking for a schematic to find the part on the laptop and to see if it was a part of the motherboard so I could have an idea of what this was going to cost me. I discovered that there is no schematic (that I could find.) The cords offered for this laptop all had "expired" labeled on them and the cart button was greyed out and not functioning so I couldn't even price it. Can someone let me know how I might proceed with repairing my laptop? It is almost three years old. If the cost is prohibitive (the whole motherboard must be replaced because the power supply plug is an integral part of it or whatever) then can you let me know the easiest and/or cheapest way to get the data off the hard drive? The battery is long past dead so it won't even fire up for me to... Read more
