Filezilla error: Could not write to transfer socket: ECONNABORTED – Connection aborted

The connection was being dropped during a FTP transfer.

We saw on the error logs that a timeout was occuring and it seems to be documented on the Filezilla Wiki: Timeouts on large files.

Two alternatives to solve this problem

  • Change the protocol that you’re connecting from FTP to SFTP
    Site Manager - Protocol SFTP
  • Set the connection to make an active transfer instead of a passive transfer
    Site Manager - Active FTP transfers

SteelSeries Siberia USB Soundcard on Windows 7

I bought a SteelSeries 5Hv2 USB on ProGaming Computer. It’s a nice headset and comes with a USB soundcard similar to the SteelSeries Siberia USB soundcard.

According to the website, it had drivers for Windows XP and Windows Vista but no  support for Windows 7. I solved this problem by installing a beta driver available at the SteelSeries blog. Other people reported success right-clicking the driver installer and selecting to execute in Windows Vista combatibility mode.

Now you just need to download the official Windows 7 drivers at the manufacturer’s website.
