Windows 7: Copying files problem?

Copying files problem?

Hi,

Well, when I copy files on my external HDD, it's going fast, until the 1st file is done, after the 1st file, it doesn't really freeze, but stops for like 4-6 secs, and then it suddenly moves on again, with low transfer speed which increases. This happens for each file

e.g.
Quote:
Copying 13 files 300MB

{Copying speed: 35MB/s (constantly changing)
Files remaining: 13
Green bar goes up constantly}

~green bar stops moving, transfer speed rate stops changing for 4-6 secs~

{Copying speed: 20MB/s (constantly going up)
Files remaining: 12
Green bar goes up again}

~green bar stops moving, transfer speed rate stops changing for 4-6 secs~

{Copying speed: 20MB/s (constantly going up)
Files remaining: 11
Green bar goes up again}

~green bar stops moving, transfer speed rate stops changing for 4-6 secs~
and so on

I've had this problem once like.. a year ago, but I somehow managed to fix it back then, I can't remember how tho ):

P.S. I have 2 external HDDs, each worked fine until yesterday. This problem only occurs when putting data on the external HDD, not when copying data from it.

Thanks in advance,
