Frustrating super-slow music folder on an external hard drive.

There are a bunch of folders on this drive, a 1TB external on an XP system.
The music folder has 357GB in it. There are numerous subfolders. I have "indexed for fast searching" turned on (and have tried off, no difference).
When I try to click into this folder, it is crazy long wait, 20-30 seconds. The subfolders are normal response speed, but then coming back up from subfolders to the main music folder again is the long wait.
All other folders on this drive are acting normal, it is only this particular one acting funky.
WTF is this, how do I fix it?
