    Hi all,
    I have an external Seagate FreeAgent 750GB HDD, and trying to use it via the eSata interface. The problem I am facing is that, it hangs when trying to copy a large (>3GB) file TO it from my main disk.

    It will seriously hang, the computer becomes unresponsive (the mouse works, but can't start any program at all, not even an explorer window).

    In smaller files (650MB) there is no problem. Also, there is no problem when using the USB interface (although I haven't tested it thoroughly).

    The motherboard used is an Asus P5K Deluxe. I have experienced this problem in Windows XP AND Windows Vista, 32 and 64-bit versions.

    Any help?
