i have a sandisk connect wireless stick, 16 GB, and for some reason it continuously disconnects from my computer then reconnects- as long as i have the stick plugged into usb it will continue to do this.
i think i’ve narroved it down to some sort of idle timeout issue, becuase as long as i continue to make changes on the drive (for example, create folders or remove them), the drive stays connected- if i don’t do anything on the drive it will eventually disconnect after about 1 minute (ie, disappear from My Computer) then will reconnect seconds later. it seems to disconnect after 1 minute of inactivity.
can anyone help with this? i’ve disabled power savings mode on the stick and changed the wifi channel a few times as suggested in the article below but no success… and i’m pretty sure this is an issue with the stick because i use many other usb flash drives (and external) and have not had this issue with any of them.
i would try updating the firmware but becuase of the disconnect issue, i’m afriad the upgrade process won’t have enough time to complete and botch the device.
