uTorrent Disconnecting USB Devices


Eagleheart

Recommended Posts

I am having a serious problem. Whenever I start downloading something to one of my external hard drives, a few minutes later all my usb devices will disconnect from my computer and refuse to connect again. The only solution is to restart my computer every time. This is crippling my ability to download anything!

 

It doesn't matter how much it downloads or how fast. It happens whenever uTorrent downloads something, whether it be 1 meg at 10 kB/s (it will just disconnect everything a minute after it finishes although nothing is downloading anymore) or 3 gigs at 6 mB/s. It never happens when I don't run uTorrent, so it is definitely causing it. I can download to and move files between all my external drives fine with no problem when not using uTorrent.

 

Could someone please help fix this?

This sounds more like a power management problem within the O/S itself. You should check how your power setting preferences are set as for external devices. Again this isn't a utorrent problem.
