External problem

One small problem that I am havining atm is when i connect any external hdd's pen drives.I use a cannon HD camcorder too but when i seem to open folders conataining .mt2s .mkv files the Icons in Windows explorer go missing and when that happens I cannot access my computer as it just reads & reads without loading up. This only happens on any external device that i plug in.When no deveice is attached the computer is just fine.I can watch these file types without any porblems.It just happens when an external device is attached.
Any ideas what could be causing this.I do a lot of video editing from weddings partys etc:- and I like to keep a backup of all my work.

On a small note I have 5 different external devices. and all with the same problem.

E6600 not clocked
4 gig ram
4 internal sata drives totalling around 3tb
Nvidia 285gtx

Windows 7 professional Retail with all updates installed.
