Hello, I have been having some issues with My Passport to drive for two months now. Copying files into the drive would sometimes hang. Then, it continues after 5-15 seconds. Today, I was copying files into it. They did the same thing.
Though, when I finished copying the files, I opened three files. The first and second files opened fine. Though, opening the third file caused my Windows Explorer to hang. I tried safely removing the drive but it would not let me.
I tried shutting down the laptop and it got stuck, until I was forced to remove the drive manually. Then, the laptop shutdown OK. I tried plugging my hdd back but this time I had real issues.
I have heard the USB plugging in sound, and I hear it spinning up, also the drive shows on the list of devices to safely remove. The drive’s LED flashes fast non-stop. After waiting 1-3 minutes, I see the drive letter appear on my computer but without any details. When I double click, the explorer hangs.
I can see the drive on device manager. Though, when I open diskmgmt.msc, the window just freezes without showing any details.
Did anyone have this issue before?
