|your sub catagory says editing software. What software is that?|
Also, if you have the same problem
'Transferring images from dvd's, cd's, jump drives or even from main hard drive to a 1T external hard drive'
Have you tried transfering some to a thumbdrive too?
It may be that your external drive is faulty if they transfer to a thumbdrive with no problems.
Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers
