fgrieu Posted October 13, 2008 Share Posted October 13, 2008 Hi, I have a CMFUSBSRVR-16GB. When I write more than about 4GB (in several small files), Windows XP hangs while writing, the blue led stops flashing, then after a while I have a message (in French) about deffered writes that failed, and the volume no longer shows until unplugged and re-plugged. Chkdsk gives the FAT32 volume a clean bill of health. I can reformat (either with Windows Explorer or the format command), but the problem recurs. If I open the drive with an hex editor, e.g.HxD, it won't read past about 4GB.The drive similarly acts strange on a Macintosh, after I write a bit less than 4GB. Looks like some sectors right after 4GB are dead. I believe the problem occured the first time usage reached 4GB, that is after a few weeks of use. Is there something to try before returning the Survivor ? If no, how do I arrange a return ? Note: I'm in France. TIA Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
