    Angry Kingston DataTraveler 16GB IO Error

    Hi,

    I've just bought a Kingston 16GB DataTraveler 100 flash drive. Every time I try to copy files with more than 100mb I get an IO error and the drive is umounted.

    The flash drive is formated in FAT32, but I tried to format with gparted in FAT32, EXT3, RAISERFS, but I keep getting the same error.

    The worst thing is that is working great on windows.
    I've tried in 5 diferents PCS, some Ubuntu and some Slackware, with no sucess.

    I'm using Ubuntu 8.10 and uname -a gives me:
    Code:
    Linux dkt-dti-009 2.6.27-9-generic #1 SMP Thu Nov 20 21:57:00 UTC 2008 i686 GNU/Linux

    Re: Kingston DataTraveler 16GB IO Error

    Hmmm, that's pretty weird. Are you able to copy files larger then 100MB to normal USB flash devices? Was the device unsafely removed? I had a similar problem with a friends 1TB external harddrive once because It was unplugged without safely removing first. Judging by the fact It hasn't worked on 5 Linux computers though I'm going to guess that for whatever reason the drive just isn't compatible with Linux. What file system is your OS using?

    EDIT: Just read a few reviews, It seems It is compatible with Linux.

    Yes I can copy files larger than 100mb to another flash drive (also kingston, but 2gb), and every other flash drive that I use works, except this 16gb one.

    I also have a 40gb HD in a USB case that also works.

    My filesystem is RaiserFS.

    And always savely remove!

    Angry Re: Kingston DataTraveler 16GB IO Error

    Now things just get a little bit more complicated....

    I tried at my laptop (also ubuntu 8.10) and everything is working...
    I copied files of all sizes....
    That just doesn't make any sense!!!

    The only thing I think of is some of the hardware at my work's pcs is making coping large files doesn't work. Or maybe I have something instaled thats is making those erros happen... I don't know.

    Can someone help me? I'm not an expert linux user, I've been using as my principal OS for a few months only.

    Re: Kingston DataTraveler 16GB IO Error

    Hate to bump this, so sorry in advance.

    Same problem (mind you I'm having this problem with any file ~50MB). It's really, really stange. Prior to picking up this drive I'd been using an 8GB of the same series (and prior to that a 2GB), without any issues. I used them to move ISO's around all the time.

    Also, it works great in Windows, I've tried FAT32 (formatted from Windows and GParted and NTFS). No difference. Both from the GUi and by running...

    sudo cp <file> /media/<DRIVENAME>
    cp: writing '/media/<DRIVENAME>/<FILE>: Input/Output Error

    It hangs for a minute or two, reads, stops reading, then spits and error. One of the guys I work with told me to run dmesg, outputs:

    Hopefully that's not to much info there.

    Input (or output, whichever) would be awesome. Thanks!

    Question Re: Kingston DataTraveler 16GB IO Error

    [ 4288.152056] usb 6-2: device not accepting address 17, error -110



    I have the same problem.


    Toshiba satellite laptop brand new with three gigs of ram and ubuntu 8.1 32bit.

    A sandisk 4 gb memory stick works fine.

    However.

    Pop in a KINGSTON 8GB usb stick be it in fat32 and the same problem hits:

    When trying to copy a file from the laptop to the memory stick it halts at 56.8 MB and says I/O error! and auto unmounts the usb stick.

    Ahh but when sending a file from the 8gb Kinston to the laptop then everything works fine with full transfer or full copy with no problems.

    So yeah its WTF time for me also.

    Any ideas any one?

    Hmmmmm?
    Also, if this is one of the cheap taiwanise device then you might
    have to tweak the modprobe params.

    Where was your Kingston 16 GB usb memory stick made?

    Thanks in advance for reading this.

    Re: Kingston DataTraveler 16GB IO Error

    Oh, yeah, should have mentioned it's a Sattelite with...3GB of RAM.

    I'm starting to think this is a firmware issue with the stick itself...

    Re: Kingston DataTraveler 16GB IO Error

    Hmmmm..........



    I forgot to ask if you tried usb sticks in 8 GB and 16 GB from Sandisk, Corsair, PNY, geek squad, Kodak, HP, ATP, and others to see if its just limited to Kingston memory sticks in 8 GB and 16 GB versions?

    Tuesday when stores are open again I will try to see if I can find some 8 GB mem sticks from PNY or Sandisk to see if the problem is limited to Kingston?
