try new usb wire
I have 1TB Buffalo DriveStation HD-CEU2, which i bought last year. It has been running perfectly up till about a week ago. Where just randomly 40-50% of my files on it don't work sometimes. Like my movies folder for instance, Some movies will play fine, and some will play for a few mins before crashing and some wont play at all. Same for my Music folder. And its absolutely random as to what plays and doesn't. There's no pattern. Its got a lot of important stuff on their which is backed up. But i really don't under stand why i cant watch movies or listen to music from it. Dose this sound like a virus on it? I really don't wana lose all my music which i have been collecting for a long time now.
It wont even let me copy the music or movies of it to another harddrive, the copy progress gets nearly to the end when an error pops up informing me of file disk error.
Also nothing changed on my computer when it started breaking. Iv just today restored my computer to its factory state. Thinking that mite solve it. but no, even on a freshly restored laptop its still not working.
Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated
