    Instructions to fix the copy/paste problem in Mac with flash drives?

    It just happens only with the flash drives, I am able to copy/paste files anywhere in the hard disk, it just fails only with the flash drives.

    What might be the problem? Why I am not able to copy/paste it properly? Can you please provide me the details for it? What might be the problem and how to fix it?

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem it is:-

    Your USB drive may be damaged so it is not allowing you copy/paste the files from it.

    If you have no damage in your USB then your system may be affected by any virus.
    So try to install the antivirus software.

    Or the USB connection of your mac may be damaged. So better to check for it.

    I hope it will help you.

    All the best.......

    Hello Sir,

    I think that you are facing the current problem in to your device due to the attack of too much virus in to your device.
    So for getting the solution to your current problem in to your device you simply have to remove all the virus from your device.

    You can do it as below::::::::>>>>>

    First of all download a good antivirus for your device.

    Then you have to install the downloaded antivirus.

    Now put your device on scan.

    After completing the scanning process you have to go for the scanning report.

    Here tap on the clear list.

    That's it.

    Now restart your device and see you will definitely got the solution to your current problem.

    If you still got any issue then i am sure that there is some loose connection problem.

    So check all the cables properly.

    All the best.

    Thank you.

    Dear Friend ....

    I don't why this problem occurs with you in your Mac Hard Disks but as far I have concern that, I think you need to check all your cables of flash drives that whether they are connected properly or not...
    If not then connect them properly and no socket should be lose at both the end.

    If the problem still persist then either you need to scan your Mac because there might be some virus present in that and if not then re install a fresh copy of your Mac OS and then copy then content.

    It might be that, you are copying content in protected space which is also the reason.
    Try to format the hard disk space first which create some empty space in your MacBook hard disk and scan now.

    At the end, if you feel some trouble again, then you need to contact with apple customer support.

    Thanks

    first of all check whether the flash drive is properly connected or not

    if not then connect it properly

    then download a good quality antivirus

    install it in your device

    and do full scan your device and fix all the virus

    if the problem still remains then

    then go to the application

    then to the utilities

    then navigate to the disk utility option

    then click on repair permission option

    and its done
