The problem itself seems to be from a memory cache on the USB adapter which drives my disk. It seems that when accessing big files, the cache gets corrupted and the drive becomes inaccessible. To rectify that, a filter driver should be installed, which will limit the packets’ size sent to the USB adapter bus.
There’s a filter named “MAX128K Filter”, just go ahead and install that. The author’s website explains it very clearly and it’s easy to understand what it does. But one thing to be careful is that he explains how to apply the filter to your Firewire device, but me, I applied it to my USB external drive.
Note: For USB external hard drives, you should look in
instead of SBP2, to find your actual external drive.
Go ahead and read what says the author, read the instructions and then download and proceed.
here’s the link :

Once everything is done properly, just restart your system and see if you get that error again. Well, you can try copying some files to the drive, and keep using the drive for some time to see if everything is working fine or not.
If you have any questions in this matter, let me know, just leave comments!
