    some specific large mkv files' transferring freezes

    Hi. I am currently trying to transfer files to my new 4tb WD external HD. Ran into a problem where some specific large mkv files transferring freezed. don't know what causes it. I did try to copy and paste the same file on the original location, same thing happened, so I know it not my new HD, is windows. Are anybody running into the same problem??

    There's no information in your My Computer [bottom left] system specs so it's hard to say if there's hardware or software issues. I don't have drives larger than 2GB and no problems with larger files so would ask if other files transfer properly. I've stayed away from 3GB drives because of earlier problems and just haven't had a need for drives that large or larger yet.
