That Western Digital drive I bought that was playing up when connected to my desktop PC?  I plugged it into my notebook.  Doesn't work properly there either.

It runs fine for (some period), and then just decides to quietly go offline. 


Update: I wonder if it's the power supply?  Remember Pixy's Law of Random Breakage: A flaky power supply can look like any other fault.

1 Yeah, the power supply is a good suspect. My Lacie 500GB external drive (which cost me a small fortune about 3 years ago) would keep dropping out randomly, then just stopped working completely. Thought I'd lost all my backup images (and more) but it turned out to be a bad power supply, and appears to be a common problem if you Google it.
