Hi,

Am really hopeing someone can help!

I brought a new PC after my old one kept continually crashing (was getting blue screen) and then eventually it wouldnt come on at all (no power).

I had an iomega 500gb ext hard drive attached which I brought because I was worried about losing my stuff...

I have now got a pc that runs on windows 7 and the iomega wont work properly.

My computer recognises the ext HD and I can see my files on it. But when I try and transfer the files to my pc, it freezes until I turn off the ext HD.

I have tried everything I can think of!

I have also taken the ext HD to my parents and plugged into their windows XP system which is same as I used to have - just in case it was a windows 7 incompatibility thing but same thing happened there...

I have all of my uni work on it (student nurse) and all of my family pics....

I really hope someone can help

I am useless with PC...

Caz xx

Check the event vieweer and see if any errors are recorded in either the system log or the application log.
