My 722 has a WD 1TB external storage and has worked fine but now when I try to access its content that has been stored on it ,my 722 and hard drive goes into a slow non responsive mode, I Have to do constant reboots every time when I use the external HD ,it freezes and slows down and causes my 722 to to give error code like my receiver is not in the right area to view this channel or some of the codes r 32-12-45 . I,ve disconnected my external HD and transferred all my recordings back to my 722 now my 722 is working normal again so my question is my WD HD 1TB going bad?

you could answer to the question by connecting it to PC, download WD test utility from WD site and run it
if you are more technically inclined - run MHDD from bootable CD or Victoria under Windows; get SMART before and after Scan+Remap
