View Full Version : Error copying many files in directory using USB OTG
When I select a directory on my digital camera and try to copy it to the X5, it starts copying. After about 70-80 files however it stops and fails to copy the remaining files. It does this everytime. Copying the remain files 1 by 1 is very time consuming.
Does anybody have experience with copying directories with about 100 files to the X5? Should this work correctly?
I'm using the latest firmware and I have a Canon A70 digital camera.
Thanks in advance,
I have experience copying files numbering in the triple digits, yes. I haven't hit your problem though, so I don't think I can offer up much of a suggestion to help. You can try, there is this setting on some cameras that allows you limit the number of files within a folder to about a dozen. Copying ten times is annoying, but not as annoying a 100 times.
Thanx for your reply Zeus's Uncle.
Are you using a digital camera (also A70 ?) or are you using a card reading. If you are using a card reader what type is it ? I think I will have to consider buying one.
For camera I use Canon SD300. And Olympus something, can remember the model number, it's my friend's and he just dumps his pictures on my hard drive sometimes to use a temporary storage. He also got a card reader, but I don't know the model number or make.
I have the same problem with my camera - Casio Exlim EX-Z10, flash card Transcend MMCplus 1 GB, X5 firmware 2.10-e
About 300+ files on card, transfer failed on 10-30th file, last writen file not displayed until player reboot. I've filled card every day during last vacantions and it took about 1-2 hour to transfer files to pleer.
Transferring from camera to PC has no problem.
Because of player has only COPY function and no MOVE I had to maually remove transferred files from camera after each fail. Moreover, i have to copy file in new subdir, because when i try to copy dir to the same dir (with diffent files) player report "alredy exist" and fail to copy.
Movies transfered with 2-3 tryes.
Finally, with all these resettings (sometimes player loked up and i had to reset it by pin) i lost several movies besause of file system damage, wich i fix on my PC with windows chkdisk.
It's not usb-host, it's nightmare.
I have the same problem. But, after trying 3, 4 times it worked fine. I use a Canon 350D with CF 1GB EXTREME III. The Canon makes folders on the CF-Card, each contains 100 pictures, so I copied always 100 Pictures and then the next 100... After beeing successful with copying the first 100 Pictures, the following were no problem... I dont transfered via the Camera (with USB) but using a Card-Reader, because its faster.
I've tried to get the USB Host working for a number of days now without success. I've used a memory card reader and a Canon 300D camera with the X5 and in all instances I receive an Access Failed:1 error message. Does anyone know what this means?
I have a number of other card readers to try yet, but given the fact that the 300D is a supported camera, then I don't hold out much hope.
Having tried all sorts of combinations I went back to using my Canon 300D with the X5 and copy an entire directory full of photos (approx 100). This time I connected the X5 up to the charger, even though there was plenty of battery power left. Eureka....it worked.
Will now try with more Compact Flash cards and see if I can replicate the success. USB-Not-Quite-On-The-Go! [toungue]
connecting the 350D directly to the X5 and moving the files is many times unsuccessful also. After trying it up to 4 times, it worked well [blush] . Hope, you will have more success.
Well, I've tried numerous memory cards now and they all seem to work. Key thing for my tests was to have the X5 on mains power.
Hope this helps people.
ps. Firmware is 2.10-e
Thanx for your suggestion.
It works indeed, keeping X5 on mains works for me as well.
copying some files schould be no problem. But, did you try 1GB, or more than 2 folders, each with nearly 100 pictures, folder after folder?
