I have been loading Music files (MP3s) on a 7200 RPM 120gb IDE hard drive. I installed the drive about 3 weeks ago and created 2 Folders on the drive Folder 1 Named (Music) and Folder 2 Named (Apps). I can still access the drive thru My Computer and access the Apps folder and the programs in the Apps folder on the drive but I can not open the Music Folder. When I click on the Music folder it opens in a new window but does not show me the files in the folder although it appears to be looking for the files. When I open Task Manager it show the drive as Not Responding and I have to End Task on it. I can right click on the Music folder and select properties Dialog Box appears and tells me I have 38GB in the folder. I ran Scan disk on the drive and chack the repair and check for errors boxes. It completed after 2.5 hours. When I try to run Defrag on the drive it starts and get to 3 percent it hangs up and I have to restart my workstation to get out of it. The Task Manager does not seem to be able to stop the Defrag. I am trying to access the music files for a Video Project with a deadline. Thank you in advance for all your help.
