Cp freezing from Seagate HDD to Win7

Hello all,

Earlier I had a mac book and created a HFS+ file system on Seagate 1 TB external HDD, copied around 200 GB content. Now, I have a Windows 7 machine and wanted to copy the HDD contents to this new machine. Tried using MacDrive10 to mount HFS+ file system in Windows. Mouting is fine and am able to access the files. Problem that am facing is, sometimes copying the files from HDD to local disk goes to infinite freezing mode.
In such case, the only recover option that I have is to restart. Terminating the copy process only crashes the system and forcing it to reboot automatically. Instead of copying the files via explorer GUI, I tried to copy it programmatically with a script and even then its the same issue. Terminating the "cp" process with kill -2, -9 crashes the system. There isn't any display of CRC error or any others that is reported. I don't think the issue is with the file size, there are files that are of size ~1 GB being copied without any problem and smaller files of size ~40 MB creating problems. Those smaller files (~40 MB) that are getting into infinite freezing mode are viewable from windows explorer and if I copy the file, it works fine. So, I can't categorize the problem to be file size related problems. There total of ~25K objects definitely I need a better way of handling this problem.

I never had this problem when I used the external disk in a mac book - copying to and from between hdd and disk was quite smooth and there were no issues.

Any pointers? Thanks. I have searched enough on various forums but could not get a workable solution for my use case.

IF you do not have issues when using MAC --> HD, and you have issues using Windows --> HD [using MacDrive10], try using Linux live cd --> HD[Using linux mount].

If you do not exhibit the same behavior on Linux i would blame MacDrive10.
Perhaps look at the bug list or update to a newer version of that software.

Can you elaborate on sometimes ? How often is that ?
Can you dd a disk to a file and mount in Windows and do same operation (copy) using macdrive10 ?
