Windows 7: BSOD When Using 2TB External HD

BSOD When Using 2TB External HD

I am using a Windows 7 x64 Ultimate, and recently, I obtained a 2TB external hard drive. I do not know if there is a relationship or not, but it seems that when I use the 2TB hard drive, I am getting freezes and BSOD.

It was usually maybe once every few days, now, its going on when I copy new files to the hard drive.

I have analyzed the different BSOD dumps and it seems there are many different things at fault. I do not know whether to call for a replacement hard drive or format the computer.

Please Help Thanks

Can you tell me the brand of the 2TB external hard drive?
Could you please fill in the system specs?
