    You need give specifics about your computer make/model, version windows, service pack level, etc

    And what specifics about your drive? and what type of external connection?? :confused: :confused: :confused:

    (altho delay write fail is often indicative of hardware failures looming i.e. get what you need off of it NOW) but specifics still needed
