Ext. USB2 HD crash mid transfer
Posted on 2003-03-14
I have just bought a usb2 external hard drive case and a 2.5" laptop drive from ebay. The case is branded BlueEye, the hard drive is a new hitachi 20Gb. When i try to transfer a large file or lots of small files the drive just disconects itself (ie. power led goes of, xp detects it as disconected, beep-boop). It works fast and fine with small single files. The drive is formatted as fat32. Motherboard is A7N8X, windows is XP pro SP1. The drive also runs fine in windows 98 under usb2 or fine under xp with usb1 (i just set the bios to usb1 not 2). I have not tested the drive on any other usb2 computers. I have tryied various things such as disabling system restore on the drive etc. There are no error messages anywhere. HELP!
