External hard drive issue

Hello,
i own a WD 2TB external hard drive
when you plug it into my laptop the hard drive starts fine showing all the right lights and making all the right noises.
it shows up in explorer as a drive letter instead of the drive name
double click it and it crashes explorer and maxes out the CPU until the hard drive is unplugged. I have tried on several computers with different speeds and OS's.
Any ideas whats wrong with it?
