Windows 7: External hard disk unusually slow

External hard disk unusually slow


It's been like this for almost a year now. When I plug the hard disk to my laptop, it takes very long to respond, but when I plug it to my TV, it responds immediately. It's gotten very annoying. Any idea how I can fix this?

Maybe your hdd have a lot of files so windows need a time to read it all.And try defragmenting it.
