Default Windows Explorer Error on Separate Hard drives

Whenever I open folders in either my 2nd hard drive in my desktop computer or open a folder in my external hard drive, it will work for about 5 seconds and then freeze. Then I have to crtl alt del to close th enon responding folder on the drive. My main hard drive works perfectly and I just did a clean format a week ago. I can load a movie if i go through windows media player, so the files aren't bad, but I can't just go into the folder. It says there is a windows explorer error. anyone know any fixes??

thanks

scott
