I tried copying files from windows 7 laptop using samba service though network connection via LAN. after a point the copying simply stops, does not close the copy windows. no error messages are shown. Then I try to copy some files larger than 1gb from my ubuntu laptop to pen drive and the same thing happens. I have tried several times, still the same response.

Please help me in this issue. I am really getting used to Ubuntu 13.04 and I am new to ubuntu. This is discouraging.
