Recently (as in about 4-5 days ago I was using a My Passport 1T external hard drive and I started to notice some problems. The problem I noticed was the media (videos in particular) I had was lagging somewhat after I clicked the video. I also noticed the computer took some time to view what was on the drive. Also when I try to transfer stuff it seems to take a little bit to load what is in the folder.
I have attempted to defragmenter it, though I cancel it because it never gets past the 3% mark on the consolidating stage. I updated the Firmware and then I tried having the on board program in windows check the hard drive. I did not have it try to recover bad sectors, but I did scan it for problems. It didn't say anything was wrong with it. I did a full disk scan scan within the WD Program to see if there was something wrong. The Program did say something was wrong, but did not tell me what it was or how to fix it.
So what I am saying here is that I need some help/advice on how to fix this because I am running out of ideas on how to resolve the problem.
