I just bought a western digital elements 2TB hdd and cannot copy multiple/large files from my pc onto it. It's in NTFS format and says it come preformatted for windows xp, wista and 7 (I use 7 pro x64). When I it starts copying after a few seconds it freezes.
Yes, handling them is not the issue. The transfer rates may be bogging you down. Also, Win7 tends to show an initial transfer time much greater than the actual time. I often see estimated times of, say, 2 hours, and actual time ends up 10-15 minutes. Didn't mean to say the 2.0 can't handle it, might slow it down a bit. If this is just a one time "bulk" transfer, you could set up 100g or so at a time when there is something else to do. Then just verify file sizes when done.
