I just got a new Memina Rocket 2GB flash key... and im having a related issue... the key runs fine on the PC systems however when I plug it into my powerbook (fully updated atleast according to software update) it mounts fine on my desktop and I can upload whatever files I want, but when I try to DOWNLOAD from the key it will go for like 9MB and then it will freeze and then cause Finder to get the "red color wheel" the only way I can fix this is by a Forced Restart (via power button)...
I figure there has to be something wrong w/ the OS b/c it works perfectly download/upload with a PC and I am able to upload to it on my mac w/o a problem... its just taking files off thats teh problem...
anyone else get this problem?
I have been reading through this thread, and have a slightly different twist than the ones I've seen so far. I have 2 different USB flash drives (Lexar JumpDrive 128MB, SanDisk Cruzer Mini 256MB). When I first upgraded my eMac to 10.4.3, the flash drives refused to show up. Due to various other problems, I've had the hard drive replaced, installed a clean system, run Software Update several times - and now the Cruzer works okay ONLY if it's not left plugged into the USB port for a long time. So I can put it in, copy to it, and eject it - but if I leave it plugged in and try to copy to it later, it freezes the computer in a very nasty way. The Copy window starts up and won't go away, might make some progress for a second, but then just sits there. Force-Quit won't work, I have to go midieval on the whole situation with the Command-Ctl-Powerkey reboot.
(The Lexar is out of the picture, since my husband thought it was dead when the symptoms started, so he threw it out.)
Has anybody seen or heard of this problem?
