I dropped my external hard drive a week ago and I found after teh drop that it was taking a long time to play movie files located in the drive. Well now when I start it up It more or less freezes the "My computer" window when I go and look to see if it has been recognized by the computer. when I turn it off everything is back to normal. I need to access/copy the data on the HD is there away to do so without having to wait, if it happens at all, for my computer to show the drive listed in the "my computer" screen?
