Portable HDD

Very often, and getting more frequent now, when i plugged in my HDD into my laptop, it hangs and produces a beepng sound. Sometimes it goes away after a while and then it opens, sometimes it just hangs and I have to stop it.
Does problem lie in the HDD or my laptop OS? My OS is Vista Business 32bit.
Any advice anyone? Thanks!:)

Try plugging it into another pc with same operating system. If it works fine it's not the hard drive however if it hangs it could be either one and you'll be back where you started from. GOOD LUCK

You might also try different cables to connect the external to your laptop.
