External hard drive

My external hard drive has decided to go slow all of a sudden.
I've tried formatting it and it's still slow although empty.
It has a 500gb capacity. When it was working it used to take 2-3mins to transfer a 700mb file now it takes 1.5hours.
Ihave tried disconnecting it and reconnecting. When I do this my PCtells me to plug it into a USB2.0 port and gives me a display of them.But I've tried them all and I still get the same result.
I havelooked in my device manager to check I have USB2.0 ports and under theVIA SUBS it says one is enhanced. So I assume they are working asUSB2.0 ports.
I have also tried it in my sons PC which I'm sure has USB2.0 ports and still the same problem when connecting.
Copyingand pasting a 700 mb file on the external hard drive takes ages. Butnot on my PC (only takes mins). On external takes 1.5 hours.
has anyone got any ideas that will help me. Because I'm not sure whether it's the external hard drive or my USB ports.
Thanks for any help you can give me.

The first thing to do is check the hard disk for fragmentation

Ultimate Defrag is a freeware defrag program.

It will defrag the hard drive and speed things up.

Its making a really sick grinding or static sound and it will not connect to my laptop no more i have 300 gigs of music on it am i screwed

The hard drive is about to die. only thing to do is to try and down to a new drive . Any important data should be backed up to another drive . and you won't have this problem. There are data recovery people that may be able to help, but get a quote as it cost a lot of money.

WD MyPassPort 320 GB partially dead after an attempt to make it Win8 recovery drive.

Maybe you can try to format it to see if you can get the space back. But one thing important is that you may need to backup your files first. If not, you may lose them. Or you may try some file recovery tool after you format your drive. This may be help, I've try it, workable. Hope it can help and hope you can get back your 320G back.

My syastem was working properly since five month don"t no suddenly what happned after swiching on the computer its showing like DISK BOOT IS FAILURE, INSERT SYSYEM DISK AND THEN PRESS ENTER ....... i amnot...

this means, there is no bootable disk detected. Make sure there is no floppy drive inserted to the system and remove external storage devices, then try to remove and reconnect the hard disk. Make sure your boot method is set to use the hard disk with your OS installed. If this does not work, you may have to reinstall your operating system. If this fails, it may indicate a failed hard disk and you may have to get in touch with your vendor for warranty replacements if needed. hope this helps.

I have a 100gb hard drive, I want to change to a 500gb hard drive. What do I do. What are the problems that I face I have a Dell Dimension 3000 and also the 500gb is from Dell. How do I go about doing this

if the drive installed is a SATA then it should be a straightforward exchange. to get it formatted after installation r click on the drive letter in explore and format and install windows. You will not see this drive in DRIVES in CTRL PANEL like you would in a normal drive.

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA
