Just built a new system and have been getting "Delayed Write Failed" when transferring files over USB either a flash drive or external hard drive. Only happens over USB.
So far I have tried:
Reformat and reinstall XP (twice) SP3
Set LargeSystemCache to 0 in registry and SystemPages to ffffffff
Disabled Write caching on all HDDs
Lowered UDMA to 4 for all HDDs in BIOS
Set Memory Usage to Programs
Installed most recent chipset drivers
and basically tried everything from these threads:
I actually dual booted Ubuntu after XP, got an input-output error when transferring files. Only largish files though, anything over ~100mb and the problem pops up. My USB mouse, keyboard, printer all work fine as does the memory card reader installed in floppy bay.
