If you run a simple test like this: dd if=/dev/da0 of=/dev/null bs=65536 dd if=/dev/da0 of=/dev/null bs=16384 Do you then see any errors? Do you have a spare USB memory stick which you could run similar write tests on? --HPS _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-usb To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-usb-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
