    *to check it the sending files are currently working in your system..
    *it may working currently background means, at the same time you can try to send this files to USB means..

    Whatever situation you are in leading to such error message display, might have happened due to the following reasons:

    1. The USB device , from which the copying is being done has problem
    Test the device in another computer whether it is in order or not.

    2. The USB Port has physical problems,
    There are other USB Ports available in the computer, insert the Device into any other port to verify the Port Status.

    3. There can be Virus Issues.
    Scan the entire system with a quality Antivirus and clean any infection if found .

    4. Remove the existing USB Controller Driver, install new one.
    Click Start--Control Panel--Device Manager--USB Controller--Driver--Uninstall.
    Then, click UPDATE DRIVER and follow the prompt to install latest USB driver from Microsoft.

    Taking those measures the problem will be solved.

    Hi............

    This problem may be due to virus effect in your system.

    Even may be due to USB improperly plugged.

    Use good quality antivirus to protect your system.

    Scan whole system and delete all the virus files.

    Then remove the USb and again connect it properly.

    That's it, your problem is cleared now.

    Thank You.
