Just bought a WD passport 120 gig usb drive and it works great on my
workstation which has win XP64. When T took it home to transfer some
stuff to my home computer which has Win 2000 sp4 with all the updates it
recognized the drive but was very slow...and when i tried to access it
it and an error message popped up saying i have an I/O error. Now the
comp won't even recognize it. The event viewer shows a bunch of error
saying there is a paging error on "DRV2B". Any ideas on what i could do
to resolve this??

If you are trying to operate the drive from a USB hub, try connecting it
directly instead. Try using a different USB cable. If the drive supports
external power (I'm not familiar with the particular one you are using,
some drives do, some drives don't) then make sure you are using it.
Finally, does the drive operate properly on some other computer?
