Oh great technical wizards, geeks and nerds. I prostate myself before you and beg for you assistance. I have 2x 1TB Western Digital My Passport EHDs. Both over 1/2 full. One with movies and one with TV Series. One of them has started playing silly buggers. When I plug it into my laptop it opens fine, it even starts playing the movie of choice - for about 1 minute. Then it stops, freezes and nothing will make it go again save unplugging it and plugging it back in again. Then it does the same thing. I can't even copy things onto it because it stops after a minute. Now, if that was it I would say that something is stopping the platten(?) spinning. But if I plug it into my BlueRay player it works fine and I can watch the movie. The other identical EHD works fine, so I can't see it being a laptop problem. Signed, Discombobulated of Tidders.
