    External USB HDD stops responding

    Meteorhead

      I have the very same problem that many others have reported all over the internet, such as this thread. My configuration is:

       

      Lenovo Z50-75, AMD FX-7500 processor + AMD Radeon R7 M255M

       

      My workaround was unsinstalling the AMD SMBUS (Southern bridge) driver with Catalyst manager. After that copying large files to the external HDD significantly slowed down (90 MB/s >> 30 MB/s), but copies did not hang. I would be glad if a fix for the issue could be made to the southern bridge driver. If you need further info or testing, let me know.
