    Re: USB drive not powering down

    Sorry guys for the delay; been on a trip.

    USB thumb drive is set to “Optimize for quick removal”

    There is no difference if I pull it out without first using “safely remove hardware”, or if I pull it out after using “safely remove hardware” (while the light is still on). I always get corrupted data. The only time I don’t get corrupted data is when I shut down the system.

    I had XP Pro on the same hardware and no problems.

    I tried the same USB drives on a laptop with Vista and had no such problems.

    My guess is there is something wrong with the registry somewhere in my installation, but I am not expert enought to even suggest what it may be.

    I am going to clean reinstall Vista next week and see what happens.

    Re: USB drive not powering down

    I checked and it is set to “Optimize for quick removal”. Regardless I always klick on “Safely remove hardware” and wait to get the message it is safe to remove. The puzzling thing is that the light does not go off, i.e. the stick is still powered.

    I don’t get corrupted data when I shut down with the stick connected.

    Re: USB drive not powering down

    The problem is with all devices (1 USB HDD and 3 different sticks).

    I have not enabled ReadyBoost.

    I don’t know where to check for Write-behind cache.

    Thanks
