    also found a few error code 57 warnings too, although doesn't seem to be an issue like this one.

    Now I can access the hard drive and use it as i normally would but when it comes to transferring files to it *bam* computer freezes.

    smart status says the drive is fine and a quick test shows no errors either and searching around the net for similar problems didn't help much.
    So far it seems people have said, either one of these are failing hdd, motherboard, psu, ram or bad drivers or bios, But I’ve ruled out my ram and motherboard , although my psu's 5.5v rail is reporting are just under 5volts i doubt it's causing this.

    but I’m out of ideas and badly in need of help, it's got over 400gb of files on it and don't fancy losing them.
    Any help with is greatly appreciated as I’m at my wits end with my pc

    Re: hard drive issues

    I've had the same problem with an external HDD, after a bit of trial and error I narrowed it down to the USB bridge board on the external drive which was causing the problem.

    It would help if you told us what external drive it is, brand, connections etc etc.

    Re: hard drive issues

    Is it an IDE or SATA disk ?? You could try connecting the actual hard disk to you computer directly to transfer your files over.

    Re: hard drive issues

    Sorry I should have been a bit clearer the problem itself is with one of my internal drives (sata western digital 500gb) ,and it seems to be an intermittent problem.

    Reading from the hdd is normal and even copying from it to another hdd is fine just writing files to it can cause my pc to freeze altogether

    (just incase my external hdd is similar to this one: Toshiba 320GB HardDrive - Ebuyer only the 250gb version)

    Re: hard drive issues

    Is it only when copying files from the external hdd that it happens? If you connevt the extenal hdd to an internal port (ie not via the USB adapter) does it still happen?

    ... it doesn't have a SATA cable. It's USB only according to that link. You could try a shorter USB cable if you have one though. Unlikely to make much difference, but it's another thing to eliminate.
