Try relocating where you connect the usb cable of your mybook, also check your usb drivers, maybe they are not good or obsolete. finally check the power adapter of the mybook maybe it is low output, or having low output so the read is slow,
you can also check if you have viruses in your mybook, could be also that the drive have bad sectors, chkdsk and fdisk would be a good option.

Tip

How to use the disk error checking utility...


As you use your hard drive, it can develop bad sectors. Bad sectors slow down hard disk performance and sometimes make data writing (such as file saving) difficult, or even impossible. The Error Checking utility scans the hard drive for bad sectors, and scans for file system errors to see whether certain files or folders are misplaced.If you use your computer daily, you should run this utility once a week to help prevent data loss.

  1. Close all open files.
  2. Click Start, and then click My Computer.
  3. In the My Computer window, right-click the hard disk you want to search for bad sectors, and then click Properties.
  4. In the Properties dialog box, click the Tools tab.
  5. Click the Check Now button.
  6. In the Check Disk dialog box (called Error-checking in Windows 7), select the Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors check box, and then click Start.
  • If bad sectors are found, choose to fix them.
  • Tip: Only select the "Automatically fix file system errors" check box if you think that your disk contains bad sectors.
