|This may, or may-not be related to the USB - network problems discussed in previous threads. I was transfering the embed98.img onto a 2.5" HD using two desktops and a 10base2 (shielded cable) ethernet network. The computer with the 2.5" drive would lock-up and freeze. This was during the 38 meg file transfer between the two computers. The 2.5" drive was master on the secondary IDE port. I then tried to transfer the file to a 3.5" Quantum Fireball, set as master on the primary IDE port. This worked smoothly. The computer >did not< freeze. I then transfered the file between the 3.5" drive and the 2.5" drive, on the same computer.|
All of the discussion regarding USB/network problems during large file transfer focused on the USB port; power supply, capacitors, pcb traces etc. But a possible variable not considered, is the 2.5" drives. The 2.5" drive was not connected to a Webplayer or USB, and I still had problems with large file transfer. Maybe it's the drives, and not the USB?
