Hi I have an external hard drive Transcend 500 GB which has two USB plug ins. I have been using only one cable (just transfer) and it has been working well until recently when I plug into my computer Dell m1330 with Windows XP, it completely freezes my computer and I will have to hard press restart button.

I have updated my BIOS tried to restore to previous month, malware and Nod32 virus scan nothing fixes it. Any tip?

Have you tried using the second USB connection?
Can you run chkdsk?
Do you see any references in Event viewer?
