Slow communication with external drive

Win 7 64 bit system ... Attached Seagate external hard drive but find it very slow to transfer files to and from. Its painful to wait for files to cross and the drive itself is so slow to open. Tested it on older Vista OS machine and works perfectly. My PC is new can anything be done to help...
