    Hey guys, I'm not as tech savvy as most of you, so I come with a problem.

    My WD external is alternating between 5bytes/sec and normal transfer speeds, about 5 seconds at a time of each. I have no idea what could be causing this or where to look for help. Does WD have a forum? I couldn't find one.

    If any of you knows potential causes/fixes I'd really appreciate some help, it's not terribly bothersome, but I would like to fix the error.

    Well, you haven't provided a model number, so I can't dig a whole lot deeper than this, but WD's support site is http://support.wdc.com/

    They have a knowledge base and download section. Maybe check and see if there is anything in the KB, or if there are any firmware updates for your model.
