hi, I have a problem with my usb external hd. lately, when I click the drive, it will take like 30 secs or longer for me to be able to use any of the folder. This has happened in the past, and format the windows solves the problem, but I don't really want to format windows and reinstall it again. Does anyone know how to solve this? thanks.
well, the weird thing is that it wasn't this slow when I first install windows. It only happend since like last week or so. Last time when this happen, I reinstall windows again (well along with other problems). I will try to disable the autorun and see if that helps.
Like it has been stated, make sure the device/computer isn't the problem. Plug the device into another USB port or even another computer and see if that helps. If it doesn't we can assume that the drive is bad. If it does, there may be a problem with the computer.
