Roxio: EMC Stream:$DATA Error message when copying files to USB..

  1. Hello TechSpot,

    I wanted to backup my files to a USB and, as usual, cannot be a simple process as drag and drop.

    For multiple files, I get a message stating:

    The file "filename.avi" has extra information attached to it that might be lost if you continue copying. The contents of the file will not be affected. Information that might be lost includes:

    :Roxio: EMC Stream:$DATA

    Do you want to proceed anyway?


    The options are, yes, yes to all, no or cancel. I click on 'yes', and everything seems to progress accordingly, but after completeing the copying, not all of my documents were copied to the USB.

    I have been to multiple forums and cannot find a solution to fix this problem. I have removed all "thumb" files, but that still does not resolve the issue. I no longer have Roxio installed.

    What can I do? I really appreciate all of the help in advance.

    Thank you!

    I suspect it is that 'trash' Summary info on a Properties Sheet

    find a file to test with which WILL d-n-d to the USB.

    the right click->properties->summary
    bet it is all empty.

    now add anything into each field and click Apply; click OK

    try the d-n-d again; What Happens this time?
