I've recently installed fedora 8 x86_64 onto my desktop computer:
CPU: AMD Phenom 9600 (2.4ghz x 4)
Video Card: Nvidia 8800 GTS
Hard Drive: 500gb SATA
The problem is that whenever I try to transfer a file to my home folder from anywhere but my Linux partition, if the file is over 500MiB the transfer will freeze somewhere between 500MiBs and 1.5GiB transfered. This occurs whether the transfer is many small files or just one large file.
This is my only problem with using fedora so if anybody can point out why this is happening and how to fix it i would be very grateful.
Things to note:
All hardware has been tested and is fine.
Both windows and openSUSE can copy the files i want from my external hard drive to their respective partitions.
Both drive's i've tried to copy from are formatted with ext3
By lockup i mean the entire system freezes then completely dies, leaving me with a flashing white line on a black screen with no text.
