Windows 7: Issues moving files on/from external harddisc using eSATA

Issues moving files on/from external harddisc using eSATA

I've bought a Toshiba STOR.E D10 Zwart 1,5TB so that I can use e-SATA to connect it to my laptop. I've got a HP Probook 6555b with Windows 7 64bits. When I use the USB connection (this hard disc has both USB an eSATA) all works fine, no problem at all.

When I connect it with the eSATA cable I can find the external hard disc and brwose through the files that are on it. However when I try to move files from my laptop onto the harddisc (or the other way around) after about 10 seconds it slows down and stops half way copying. Next Windows Explorer is not responding.

Does anyone have an idea about what the solution to this problem can be?

I found this solution on the Toshiba forum:
"I had also problems with stor.e d10 2 TB und it is HDD.

Then with the program paragon diskmanager prof I received the information that the partition has an invalid
geometry value.
I deleted the partition und made a new one with paragon diskmanager.
Since then the external drive works fine und it is recognized in bios and in win7/32bit. "
