    I'm running Vista Home Basic on an Acer aspire 5735.
    I'm trying to copy the contents of my usb stick to my HDD but nothings happen when I try.
    I can copy individual or a selection of files but when I include a folder or folders in my selection nothings happens.

    My HDD is NTFS and the USB stick is Fat32. 8Gb Kingston

    :confused:Anyone any ideas

    Found the problem. There was a corrupted file in one of the folders. Mind you, an error message would have helped me out.
