Windows Server 2003 USB Drive Copy

When copying large files to an External USB drive from Windows 2003 Server the computer will freeze.   I have tried switching USB Drives and also checked Event Viewer and running updates - the issue still occurs.  I have read in other posts online where someone suggested it happens with NTFS but not FAT32.  I have no idea on how to resolve. Any suggestions are appreciated.

If you use another drive you still have the same problem?
Did you try updating server (windows update), and drivers, as well as firmware?
How big is the file size?

Are you using normal Windows file copy or a third party tool?

ehabsalem: It happens with different USB drives. I did update the drivers/firmware.
It happens with both standard windows copy and also other copy utilities.
The file sizes vary, it happens when I am copying a large folder over 1GB.
I haven't clicked on the link because you had a lot of questions that I want you to review first.

The link simply says that TrendMicro antivirus created the same problem you are facing. Disabling TMicro solved the problem.
If you do not have trenmicro then no need to check it.

Thanks for the update. No I don't have Trend Micro Running.  I have seen other people post this same problem but no real resolution offered. It might just be the USB card has issues.  There are no othe USB ports available and I don't have more time to research so I am going to close the question down.  Thanks.
