    First look in disk Management and make sure the drive has a letter assigned. Also with external drives it is a good idea not to connect through a hub or use a USB cable longer than the original.

    I had problems with AVG in the past. It did not like SP2 for XP. If I ran the cursor over that file or the row containing it it would make the system unresponsive for a minute or more.
