I have a puzzling problem... I have a mounted seagate 320gig hard drive that has preformed well for over a year as i have been travelling and it now contains 80 gig of beloved photo's which mean the world to me. The issue is that now I am trying to back them up to some thing more secure it is FAILING....
When I view the photo's on the hard drive it will load the first few images but not the rest and if I try and view one off the hard drive it either states COM SURROGATE fail or that windows can't view it because it is being edited in another program... (it isn't though). Trying to copy them across shows the transfer speed bouncing around but generally very slow and it will skip quite a few of the items stating it can't read them.
Now here is the weird thing, I just transferred 5 gig of video off the drive with no issue (and at 35Mbps) but it encountered problems once it hit some audio files and skipped 3 out of 20 of the said audio files?
I cant find any info only line or your forum that seems to match this problem.
The computer runs Win7 though it isnt an issue as other drives work fine...
