External Harddrive Transfer Error

  thetallstewy 01:10 28 May 2008

When I turn on my 500GB Cavalry external hard drive and when I try to access a certain folder, the light on the hard drive turns purple (Transferring data) and it wont stop until I turn my hard drive off. What is wrong with it?

Probably corrupt data in the file you are trying to open.

If the file is easily replaceable delete it off the external hard drive, if not you will have try and recover it.
