Question What is My Hard Drive at 100% Active Time With No Read or Write Speed?

I have a Western Digital My Passport 2 TB external hard drive that is about 4 months old. It is not under heavy use as I rarely put files on it. Recently I've been having this problem where a program will request data from that drive and it'll sit at 100% active time with no read or write speed for a while. About 5-10 seconds later, the drive will finally start reading. This does not seem to be a problem that has to do with any of the othe components of my computer because the issue persists on an alternate computer that I've tested it on. What is the reason for this?

Thanks in advance for any help.
