Hang when acessing external hard disk or partition

Dear Sirs,

I got problem with encryption program TrueCrypt 4.2 in the CAVS beta 2 environment, this is what had happen:

It always hangs when I mounted a TrueCrypt file or device from hard disk except the TrueCrypt file is from USB flash.

Way around to overcome this issue is by sticking a usb flash that has a TrueCrypt file and mounted it, and then the other TrueCrypt files or device from hard disk will run smoothly.

Same thing happens when acessing usb external hardisk, the trick using the usb flash is not works.

Best Regards.
