BSOD when copying large files

I seem to have a problem with my USB slots. I use these USB slots for my mouse, my printer and my Zboard all with no problems. When I connect them to a storage device however I occasionally get the blue screen of death. The 16G MP3 player will sometimes cause the crash, but not often. The digital camera will also sometimes cause the problem, especially if I download many files. Then bought a TrekStor 500GB external Hard Drive 3.5 and if I start transfering large amounts of data I always get the Blue Screen. It is a KERNEL_STACK_INPAGE_ERROR. 0x00000077 (0xc0000185, parm1,parm2,parm3)

I have tried plugging the TrekStor into other USB slots but I get the same blue screen.

I now added another ATA SATA drive and tried to copy a 296 MB file between the drives. I got a STOP: 0X000000F4 (0X00000003, parm1, parm2, Parm3) BSOD

So it seems whenever I copy large files between drives I get the BSODs.

Anyone have any ideas what I should do?

Thanks.

You can google either of those number strings and get more.

Could be an IRQ conflict, driver, XP is not properly updated, and a number of other things.

“0xC0000185, or STATUS_IO_DEVICE_ERROR: incorrect termination, or defective cabling of SCSI-based devices, or two devices are trying to use the same IRQ.”

Could be the dreaded usb power management flaw.

USB ports could be problem, try to get the USB 2.0 PCI Card (should be installed in a PCI slot) :slight_smile:
