OK, then my suspicion is that either your external disk or your usb port
As you already tried with another usb port, iirc, you should either take
out the actual disk and use another usb casing for it or you use a
device to connect pure (i.e. without casing) IDE/SATA harddisks to usb
for quic and dirty data transfers eg. from a dying harddisk.
Lastly you could take your usb disk to a different computer. If the
other one is linux, let's see what happens. If it is windows, let's see
what happens. ;-))
