i recently acquired a Seagate 2TB ST2000DL003 HDD, after installing and formatting, everything is fine, the drive shows in my computer.
when i start copying files to my new drive it goes half way, then freezes, and dialog box says 'not responding', cancel doesn't work, then PC freezes, after a couple of minutes desktop returns to normal, however then my 2TB HDD doesn't show up anymore after the freeze. doesn't show in device manager either, it sort of disappears until i reboot. it fails to copy anything.
running this as a slave drive on windows 7 64bit.
tried the hard drive on a different pc with windows 7 32bit and same symptoms appear.
