What file system is the external drive NTFS or FAT32 or something else? If it's FAT there are file size limitations which may be the problem. (4GB for FAT32 for example.)
Otherwise it may be a fragmentation problem - run a defrag on the drive and see if that helps.
Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Defragmenter - select the correct hard drive.
