    I've got a macbook and a macbook pro.

    My External HDD relaunches the finder every time i attempt to open/explore, what could be the problem?

    My macbook reads and is able to open the hdd, my macbook pro is able to read , however it's unable to open the hdd. Everytime I open my HDD, it relaunches the finder.

    Help please.

    Btw, i've tried repairing my disk using Disk utility, but there's apparently nothing wrong.

    Try updating your disk's firmware. This has solved a number of external disk-related issues for me.

    To do this, go to the manufacturer's web site, find your model of drive, and download the latest firmware update (make sure you grab the Mac OS X version of the installer). Follow the directions the installer gives to install it.
