PC freezes during data transfer between harddrives

  girrock 22:01 21 Feb 05

While transferring large folders (200Mb+) from a Maxtor external hard drive to the My Documents folder of my Toshiba laptop, my computer freezes during the transfer. Small files transfer OK. No problem transferring from laptop to Maxtor. Any help would be appreciated.

The last time that this happened to me I found that it was a conflict between drivers.

Uninstall the hard drive, reboot, re-install, reboot and try it again.

Thanks for your response, I had already tried reinstalling the Maxtor plus defragging and running check disc, all to no avail. Thanks anyway.
