Hi there, I recently purchased a 1 terrabyte verbatim eSATA and usb 2.0 External hard drive to hold all my media. I decided to use the eSATA option because of the better speeds, plus all my USB ports are already being used up. So everything goes fine when I plug in the drive to the eSATA port first, windows recognizes it as a hard drive, I'm able to read the data that's already on it fine and add small files to it. Adding small movie files (700mb) works, but the hard drive disconnects after finishing. When I try and add a large file (1.32GB) I get the following error:



Any help would be appreciated since this drive is intended for large files.

I've already tried reinstalling drivers, checking if anything was out of place in the BIOS, and tried both NTFS and FAT32 file systems.

Have you every found a resolution to this issue? I have a very similar experience with a Lacie Quadra d2 1TB and a Dell Precision M6400. I have got a replacement Lacie, reloaded the laptop. BIOS update, tried the eSATA port on the laptop and the docking station, still to no avail
