You don't say which OS you are using or what external hardware is involved. If you have tried running chkdsk and/or sfc /scannow it would be helpful to know.

A search indicates there may be either malware or a file problem; have a look at this rather long post it may answer some questions or at least give some clues. It is also worth noting that the site this is from are excelent for resolving malware infections.

The link I provided was for a similar problem in XP.

Have you tried running chkdsk and/or sfc /scannow? If so what result did you get?

Does this problem occur with any other USB unit?

Have you tried the drive in a different USB port?
