I have a Freecom 250GB External Hard Dive, which has worked fine for 2 years. However, in the last 6 months, if I turn it on after I have booted up windows, the mouse moves around ok, but my computer freezes and I can't open or use any programmes/files etc. If I click on 3 or more files/programmes, then my mouse freezes too and the only way to shut down the computer is to press and hold the power button.
If I turn on the Freecom hard drive BEFORE booting up the computer then everything works fine. I have googled everywhere, but can't find this problem. I can only find the computer freezing bit and not where it works ok if the drive is turned on before boot.
Can anyone help or got any suggestions ?
