    Loading Onto External Drive Has Become Slow


    I have a DAP (Digital Audio Player) where uploading to the main drive (F) has become so slow that it took 20 minutes for one MP3 song.
    An entire Album that use to take 3 minutes now takes 1 1/2 hours+ because it also keeps freezing.

    However the Sata card in the DAP (drive G) works normally.

    I went into Properties and found that the drive's "last run" said never run... and "current status" said optimization not available.
    In tools I've scanned the drive and the results say it's working fine.

    Should I wipe the drive with cCleaner?

    Once again...close to a hundred reads and zero response...I'm seeing a pattern.

    Trust me I did Google first and tried all sorts of "fixes" that didn't work before I posted here.

    Moderator...please delete this thread.
