So I have a gigabyte EX38-DS4 motherboard on a custom-built Desktop PC with Windows XP SP3. The situation is that I have the eSATA bracket that came with it connected to the motherboard and I want to use an external hard drive which I have built on the eSATA bracket. Everytime I plug it in, I can browse through files and the folders fine. However, when I try to get files onto the external hard drive or take files off of it, then, the transfer speed slows down until my system freezes and I have to reboot.
Please note that I do not want to have to reinstall windows or change out my motherboard.
I have spoken to gigabyte's technical support but they were not able to replicate the problem.
Does anyone know what the problem could be? Please answer me as soon as possible.
OS: Windows XP SP3
RAM: 3GB DDR2 Memory
HDD: 250GB SATA HDD and an 80GB SATA HDD
DVD: SATA DVDRW with dual layer support
Motherboard BIOS version: F5
Hope to hear from someone soon as possible,
