Western Digital 40 Gig External Firewire Drive


My drive mounts and I can see my files, however, if I attempt to copy any folder from this drive to either of my internal drives (ATA or SCSI), The copy starts but then freezes. It completely crashes Finder to where I have to hard boot. Force Quit (relaunching finder) will not work. Also, tried using an old version of Retrospect under 9.2 but it freezes as well. Again, had to hard boot.

Is there a firmware update or something I need to do to the drive to work with OS 10.4.2?

Any help is greatly appreciated.
