    I just bought a new Lacie 160GB hard drive, the Porshe one, and when it's on and connected to my Windows XP machine, it will constantly run and become very hot. After a while, when I try to open a folder or something on the drive, it says that the directory has become corrupt and unreadable.
    Any ideas on what's going on?

    Did you upgrade the "firmware" for the LaCie drive. I believe it was recommend by LaCie to upgrade the firmware when upgrading to XP SP2.

    That should fix the problem. :)
