Is my hard drive bust?
I have a BUFFALO HD-LBU2 DriveStation (External Hard Drive)... now my problem is this. It runs; when it's idle, it works. I've scanned it for errors, no problems. It's seen as active and healthy- pretty much everything a working hard drive does. I can even read from it. However...
When I try to copy onto it- especially large files- the computer stops recognizing it (saying the device can speed up if connected to a Hi Speed USB port), and the hard drive seems to "restart". When it restarts tho, the computer doesn't see it until I reconnect it... Now i can't seem to pin point the problem. As normally when hard drives pack up, they tend to have problems being read, and so forth...???
Now I know it's not the USB port, as it works fine with other USB devices- and I don't think it's the cable, as i have tried two different cables. But like now, i've left it and it's run fine for the past 15 min- i've tried copying to it, and BAM, it restarts.... Is my hard drive bust, or is it my computer giving signals it needs a redo?
Any help would be appreciated...
