    Hey guys i'm having alot of confusion on my External 3.5 Sata Samsung 500GB HDD.

    The problem is, that when i plug it in through usb it sees it, but as soon as i start working or copying something from it, or copy to it, and it shows that it copies, half way it stops, says its still copying but its not, how i know the computer completely frezzes, and when i turn it off its all fine.

    Though when i hooked up my external hdd to a sata cable to my pc its completely fine, is some reason for this? is there like a driver to make it work or something, i've come across this problem with many computers even my own laptop :(,

    Please need help.

    No driver required. I'm guessing there's an issue with the external case, you might consider returning it and picking a different brand.
