Friends,

I keep getting errors in the Event Viewer under Windows 7 Ultimate x64 while using my Kingston 16GB thumbdrive. I've had it for about 6 months now, and have had no issues except these errors on occasion and every once in a while, my explorer.exe will freeze when re-formatting the drive to eXFAT (just to clear it). My system really doesn't like this drive...the errors are below...

Are these ignorable? Is this because of normal issues with eXFAT format on removable media (which I've heard rumors of a few instabilities with eXFAT). Is this my USB drivers from Intel?

Thank you in advance for any help friends.

I don't want to alarm you
but on my country forum I asked question related to USB, how safe they are
and 2 users complained to Kingston 16GB (both)

told they gone dead after 3 months of work
If you want true Windows user experience
try Longhorn builds: 3718, 4029, 4066

Friends?

Still having this issue...I'm thinking it might be the latest Intel Chipset Drivers...I'm reluctant to blame Kingston because I've used their memory products for about 10 years or so.

Need help guys

I didn't know you could format a USB key eXFat. Why do you want to do this?

Cheers and Regards

Possibly unrelated (or maybe not completely) :unsure:

Those kind of errors are typical (NOT on USB) of a "bad cable", as a matter of fact of a "disturbed" or "not shielded" cable.
They were common in 2K (yes, many, many years ago) on IDE devices when 40 wire cables were used (instead of the 80 wires one).
Typically an user would update his/her PC with a new disk (unknowingly getting an ATA 4 drive) without also upgrading the cable, and one could soon have the event log full of similar entries.
If it's a desktop I would try (as a test) to connect that USB thingy to a port "on the back" of the PC (i.e. one of the ports that are directly soldered to the motherboard) and see if you still have those errors.
If they "disappear" it is very likely that it is either the cable connecting the front USB port to the motherboard or the USB socket itself.

JFYI, even more years ago, when SCSI drives were more common, the saying was "when you have an issue with a SCSI disk drive, it can be anything, but the culprit is the cable, change it".

Thank you very very much jaclaz!! I hadn't considered the cable but you are 90% likely to be right. It's some sucky brand called "TRIPP-LITE" that was the only one that the local PC repair store had in stock. I have the 9ft cable coming from the USB in the back on the MB to this particular thumbdrive. I've learned MANY times over not to trust these so-called expert repair people with advanced technical issues or anything above "did you turn it on" level of support (typically that of HP, Dell, Microsoft). Of course they "highly recommended" the product, especially since it was the only freakin brand on the shelf at the time. Business ethics 101.

Thank you again friend.

bphlpt,

Yes, you can format as exFAT just about anything now-a-days since about 2008 I believe when Microsoft added support with Vista SP1 and forward. Apple added support 12 months later with Snow Leopard 10.6.5 if I'm not mistaken. I use this format since I run both PC and Mac in my home.

Well, just for the record you can manage to have exFAT on XP too, see:

And in DOS too:

I have the 9ft cable coming from the USB in the back on the MB to this particular thumbdrive.

A 9ft cable is a particularly "longish" one (while largely within specs):
http://en.wikipedia....ial_Bus#Cabling
but no wonder (should it be proved that the issue is the cable) that it can get some "interferences/noise" or simply that is a little bit "retarded" in acknowledge/return signals.
