When copying big files from this hard drive to another drive or flash drives(USB/Memory cards/etc)… the computer will freeze from time to time (like I cannot move my mouse or when I am listening to some music, it repeats that same frame )… It just freezes for 1-5 seconds and the computer will function again… and the process will repeat… Sometimes the freezing happens even though I am not copying files.
I checked the event viewer and an event ID 51 shows at the time of freezing …so yeah , the event viewer has full of event 51 errors… the description of the error is
An error was detected on device \Device\Harddisk1\D during a paging operation.
i have searched through the internet but i haven’t found something like this problem so i am not sure what is wrong.
Hmm… my OS is Windows XP pro and I think the problem is related to that since wd10ears is an AFD… But I did the jumper settings as instructed… I did not use the WD align utility for this drive. so do you think that is the problem?
