Okay. At first I thought my external usb WD 80gig harddrive was dying on me, so I had warranty and everything ready to ship. Well of course I wanted to save some important files, so I tried one last time connecting the external to my friends laptop. It worked like brand new. I also tried it on another friends desktop pc, worked great.
Now this hd used to work great on my computer, but it started responding slower and slower. Now I'm lucky if my computer recognizes it the first time or even lets me open a folder. I have even tried re-installing xp, but the first time I tried it it didn't even give my hd a letter. It is also usb powered. Oh and I don't know if this means anything but it seems when I connect it to my computer I can hear the external hd trying to run, unlike when its just running smooth and silent on any other pc.
I am using a computer I put together myself which is basically a different mobo inside an older HP, but I am totally baffled to why this would be giving me problems. I am currently sending all my data from the external connected to another pc on my lan to my pc, and now I'm 8 hours into the copying? All in all, this is really becoming a pain in the ass. Any suggestions or things I could try would be greatly appreciated.
