I have an USB 2.0 stick (unknown brand), 8 GB capacity

formated to NTFS

 

it works fine, until it tries to copy last few bytes of any file

like so:

 

ckl07.png

 

at this point when it comes to 5 or 1 second to complete

it waits 30 seconds, sometime up to 1 minute and does nothing, just waiting and waiting

then completes the copy/move

 

I scanned it with windows check disk and nothing bad was shown

driver is generic by winOS (7)

 

what could be the problem ?

Two things to note:

- A Copy/Move operation isn't done directly to the target - your TEMP folder is used for intermediate transfer

- Caching -may- have something to do with it - see following two links

Your image contains questionable language.  High probably that you are trolling.

Maybe it needs to be carefully cleaned after a too literal use :ph34r: of the device. :whistle:

 

Seriously now, it sounds like a controller issue of some kind.

 

I personally would try to "zap" the thingy (let's call it "low level formatting") with it's manufacturer tool (where available).

Normally these softwares do have also a "testing" provision (it is well possible that the issue is within the actual memory chips and not in the controller/settings).

 

Start by identifying the actual device and the controller in it:

http://translate.goo...SVs1qrHLBHeb4YA

 

It is possible that one or the other of the three "main" tools (CheckUDisk, ChipEasy, ChipGenius) will provide different/wrong information, so I recommend to run all three of them and compare results.

I'd be interested to hear more of them, if they are suitable for MSFN.

yeh it identified itself as Toshiba something, but their web is in some freakish chinese :P

could it be because it is in NTFS and not usualy FAT32 ?

No and no (and no :w00t:).

Meaning that there exist NOT AFAIK any Toshiba USB stick controller (but Toshiba memory chips are often used) and that the idea was that you ran th etools and posted their output (so that I can help you find the right production tool on some "terrifying" :ph34r: Russian :yes:, not "freakish" :no: Chinese pages ;)) and no, the NTFS is not an issue in itself, though depending on a few settings in the actual OS the filesystem journaling features may accelerate flash wear.

So the controller is a Phison and the pendrive is a common garden-variety Kingston.

This may or may not have anything to do with the issue you reported but, whatever file system you use, you should abstain from using names containing spaces, like "Stick it"... you never know when some part of the OS will balk just because of that.

Good and here is the Russian ;) related page :

http://www.usbdev.ru/files/phison/

http://translate.goo...1bCLF1mWu1K82tA

 

What you want to try is the "Phison UPTool" and/or the "Phison MPALL", but first you should try with the "Phison Low Level Format Utility (Preformat)".

 

Your stick seems like using a controller:

UP20 = PS2260 = PS2251-60

There are several versions of such tools on the given page, you may want to try with another one, but these are undocumented, complex and potentially "dangerous" tools, a report like:

with UPTool, I get error "not support IC or Flash"

 

makes very little sense.

Which EXACT file did you try?

HOW EXACTLY did you run it (which EXACT settings)?

 

What about the "MPALL"?

 

In any case get the "Getinfo" program GetInfo v3.8.8.2:

http://www.usbdev.ru/?wpfb_dl=119

and run it, it is a Phison specific "information gatherer" that will provide additional info.

Also read (through google translate) the actual "main page", there are a number of "suggestions", "tricks" and "what not's" that may apply to your case.

 

Finally, cannot say speciifically, but these utilities usually tend to work fine on XP and to have issues on Windows Vista :ph34r: or  7.

you asked I answered

I used latest one they offered, and those are GUI programs with no settings to use, just "run and wait"

 

don't understand why you offended

 

MPALL didn't want to use since low level fornat wasn't able to work

I am not offended at all :no:

 

My sticks work fine, I can zap them when I want/if I need to, you have a problem, I attempted to help you on it, this turned out to be not possible, and I simply stated what was evident.

 

As said, no prob whatsoever :), but I can find better uses for my spare time, rest assured.
