Hi Folks,

I have a white macbook that has recently received a new motherboard. Everything has been working fine and all of a sudden I'm not able to transfer files properly via the USB port. I have tried xferring music to a USB stick, and also tried backing up a folder to an external drive (something I do all the time without any problem).

I feel like this might be a hardware USB port issue. Would that be the case? I'm getting and error about 1/3 of the way through the transfer, whereby it says that it can't continue because the folder is "already on that drive", which is not true.

Is this a hardware issue or software? I'll repost in another section of the forum if people don't think it's hardware but I thought I should start here.
QUOTE Thanks
