WD WD20EARX external drive crashing PC
I have a win7 home premium PC that has a Western Digital external drive attached to it. Recently, possibly in the last month, it's been giving me grief.
When it is plugged in the PC slows down to a crawl and at times I get a BSOD. I have been unable to save to the drive for a while so I formatted it using the command prompt. It still slows the PC down and I believe it still cannot be written to ( I'll have to check this on the weekend ).
Has anyone else come across this.
Oh I have tried different USB sockets and still get the same results.
