    how is the drive connected? usb or firewire?
    On a given day or given circumstance, you think you have a limit.
    And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit and you think "Ok, this is the limit".
    As soon as you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further.
    With your mind power, your determination, your instinct and the experience as well, you can fly very high.

    do you know what motherboard you have?

    check with Belarc advisor if you're not sure...

    i didn't get a lot of details from that description...
    are we talking about a laptop here?
    what are the system specs of the machine?

    when transferring files, do you notice what the free resources are (i.e. how much cpu and ram is free? (you'll be able to see in task manager))
