    Today, i bought myself a 512mb pendrive, i wanted to use it, windows recognized it as a removable drive without any problems, so i drag-n-dropped a file onto the drive window, but it froze at 30 percent

    Ive tried rebooting but no change, the files were still freezing at 20-50 percent

    Ive tried to disconnect, and then connect my pendrive, but this also didnt work

    I went to a friend of mine to see if this is because of a badly manufactured pendrive, but at his place everything seems to work out ok

    Now, im quite a newb to computers, so if you guys could hook me up with any solutions do this, id be very thankful

    My system is winxp sp1

    first i would say, get sp2 and all the updates, and you'r sure you have no bugs, i would try to copy one file using xp right click. can't get much in 512mb.but clean temps. defrag, run chkdisk, unplug it, restart, nothing else running, try again.
