USB harddrive takes time to connect

  jacksony 08:16 08 Jul 06


I am using Windows XP, and every time I connect my USB harddrive, which has 60GB of stuff on it, the computer takes a few minutes doing an auto-scan and scanning all the folders on the USB hard drive.

Can I stop it doing this and speed things up a bit?
