I was using default browser so pcmanfm and tried both rythmbox and audacious.

What program are you using to try and play music? What file browser are you using (the default?).

It seems so random. Any thoughts.

Rohit, it seems to work ok with pen drive, but I don't use it for large files like music, not sure if thats a factor.
also seems to work after unplugging it sometimes. I recall having a similar issue with HAL years ago and it had to do with the order that HAL was loaded on boot. not sure if this is a similar thing.

If it is ntfs/fat32 partition, try to repair on windows7.
I had downloaded a movie from net, ...on playing it, same problem occured.

I'm supposing you have all these systems in one computer, so it couldn't be that there's a misfit of usb. hm...try installing palimpsest disk utility and see if that detects it. It's also possible that there are certain errors in E17. I've encountered a similar problem before which was fixed by using openbox instead of E17, although I'm guessing it's is more of a pcmanfm issue rather than e17 (I think I read somewhere about udisks though I can't seem to find the source now).
Could this be related?

I had ubuntu on this machine and arch at one time. I'm beginning to suspect the Usb itself. I think it may be giving out. It is an old machine after all. It just seems so random. I installed Debian just to check, and it worked great for several hours then unmounted and began to be flake out again. So seems more of a hardware issue at this point.
Thanks for all the help
