Hi, I have a Dell dimension E520 with Vista Home premium,2x 250 gb Hdd,2gb RAM and inbuit cardreader. When I first bought pc I thought my original printer was not compatible with Vista as it would not print photographs satisfactorily. I bought new HP printer problems persisted.
I have since carried out some tests and found that whenever I transfer photofiles via usb (i.e to printer, external Hdd, usb memory, or usb card reader) my files are corrupted. If I transfer photofiles, other than via usb (i.e. to/from: Hdd/Hdd, Hdd/inbuilt cardreader, Hdd/Optical drive, inbuilt cardreader/optical drive, etc)they are OK.
I have not detected a problem with text files, I guess it could be because they are smaller??
If the drives are shifting files I don't think its going to make no difference USB are re-enabled. If you have more that one stick of Ram try with just One Stick try each in turn as one of your Ram sticks may be faulty
Sure have and the problem still persists> The problem is not down to any of my usb attached peripherals (including printer and ext Hdd) I use these with my daughters' and my own laptop and they work and print just fine. As far as i can see the problem, whatever it is, is to do with my dell PC.
