    Copying Files from USBdrive freezing MBP. HELP!
    so i have an 80 gig I/O Magic portable hard drive.
    ive been having this problem where if i try to take a file off of the drive and copy it to my MBP, the copy window comes up, and just freezes at 2mb and sits there, obviously not going to copy. is there a way to force quit this process? obviously ive looked under "force quit" and the process isnt there.

    what could be causing this? anything im doing wrong?

    im not running any other processes at all when ive been trying this. it happens every time. ive also tried to burn data dvd's from the external drive only to have it start and freeze and ruin the blank disk.

    thanks

    P.s. it is only happening when trying to copy .avi files to the MBP harddrive. music files it has worked fine.

    [Mod note: One thread per topic, please!]
