I have a Kingston 256MB USB flash drive. When ever I try to copy/save any data on it I get a error message. (connot copy [filename] the request could not be performed because of an I/O device error). I flash my motherboard Bios, but it still dent solve the problem. I even reinstalled a fresh windows xp pro sp2. But same problem. I installed different motherboard driver for usb but still not working. But the usb flash drive key works on any computer but my. However I can read any other data on it but cannot copy to it.

What is wrong with my USB flash key?

Hi Lil Rizy,

First question I would ask you is, if other USB devices work on the USB slot you are using. I built my system and have built many others...on almost all of them, some of the USB ports are not plugged into the motherboard by default. So, if no USB devices work in that USB slot, that could be why. Another reason (if no device works in the USB Slot) could be that it is not enabled in your BIOS. Check that and make sure that your BIOS has USB devices enabled.

If other USB devices DO work, then my next suggestion would be to check out your device manager (Start then Run, then devmgmt.msc) then look at your USB controllers. Do you see any conflicts?

hey windowsxp550 thanks for taking time helping me

First of all, all other USB ports work with any devices except for the flash key. I even use one USB port for printer. I unplugged USB port for printer and test the flash key in same port, but still dent work. However it might be a conflict with other USB ports or problem with my motherboard. I also build this computer for my self. So I checked USB plug on motherboard it looks right. But that is only for front usb not back usb ports. here is what I have.

It's weird that they work for other devices. Did you try to uninstall them and reboot your computer? XP will set them up again on start-up. Make sure you disconnect all devices connected to them.

It might be a Microsoft problem.

Check out this thread, and scroll down to the post by Zed on Saturday, April 2nd. He seems to have found a fix that worked for him.

Can you read data from it? Is the flash drive listed in My Computer when you plug it in?

If the answers are 'yes' then check the write-protect switch on the flash-disk.

hey

yaa I can read data from it. But cannot copy to it only on my computer. Yes it is listed in my computer when I plug in. ...what write-protect switch on the flash-disk. Is there something like that? Anyway it's only on one system that does not work but any other system it works. So I think it Intel motherboard problem. It may not support this type of flash key. Donít know!

sorry -you did say you could read from it in your first post - missed that.
Some Flash disks have a tiny, physical write-protect switch on them. I thought if it was on it might fit the situation you describe but you say it reads and writes in other systems.

So I think it Intel motherboard problem. It may not support this type of flash key.

The board just has to support USB, its the operating system that works out what kind of device it is and whether it is supported.

Other than searching for similar reported problems, and trying to borrow another disk of the same sort to try on your system, I can't think of anything. :thumbsup:
