    Hello,
    I bought an external hard disk (a WD 500) and plug it to my computer. It doesn't work very well, please see below the example of issues I have with this external hard disk:
    - when I plug it with a thumb plug to my computer, it takes very long for my computer to recognize the disk (when it does recognize it indeed)
    - when it finaly reconignize the disk, sometimes I can read the files I already copied on it sometimes I can not!
    - sometimes I can copy / paste data on it, sometimes I can not!
    I'm getting very frustated with this disk. Can anyone help me with it?
    Thank you very much for your support,
