    External Hard Drive causing BSOD on Desktop-not laptop


    Very bizarre behavior. I have an old Mybook USB 2.0 for backup purposes like Resumes/Pictures.
    I am running the latest Windows build on both my laptop and desktop.

    I checked WD Utilties. Hard drive passed test.

    When I am copying stuff from my desktop to the hard drive I am getting a BSOD IRQL error once it starts-not every single time.

    I have it connected up to my laptop now and have gotten 0 crashes. Any ideas?

    USB 2.0 ports on the laptop and USB 3.0 port on the desktop? The plastic insert on a USB 2.0 port is black, and it is blue on a USB 3.0 port.
