My Book 3tb Issues

I just recently bought a 3tb My Book Essential, and since buying it have had nothing but problems with it on one of my laptops.  Any other computer I hook it up to, it works fine.  I have a Toshiba Satellit P505 laptop running Windows 7 64bit.  Any time I plug it in, I get error messages ranging from “the device is not  working properly” to it telling me I need to format the drive.  This is when it actually works.  On the rare times that it does recognize the drive, when I attempt to copy something to it, it tells me it no longer exists, despite being able to open the drive and all folders I have put on it.  This has become increasingly frustrating, and rather confusing since I have a seperate WD My Passport 750gb which works perfectly.  I have tried calling customer service and after being on hold waiting for someone for over 5 minutes, the person asked my problem, then put me on hold again, only hanging up on me instead.

Can anyone help me with this?
