I bought myself a Fujitsu 80Gig laptop HDD and an enclosure for it ( this one but with MECER branded on it: http://tradeshow.globalsources.com/T...ductDetail.htm )
The PC picks it up and I had no problems till last night when I started using it fully. I was copying about 21Gigs worth of data to it and three times it bombed on me. Windows says that the device I was copying to doesn't exist or something and one of those balloons pops up on the bottom right of my taskbar with a long message telling me the device shut down and that any data I was copying could be corrupted.
If I plug the drive out, wait a while and plug it back in, everything's fine again.
All the USB cables are plugged in correctly.
Possible problems that I can think of:
1) I used my front USB sockets on my case that are plugged into my motherboard. Maybe use the ones on the mobo itself?
2) RAM. I'll test my RAM tonight to see if that could be a problem.
3) The enclosure was warm but not hot, so I don't think it was overheating, but that could have been the problem.
Is there anyone who has the same type of setup with the same problem?
