    Well, I have a 1TB Maxtor One Touch that started to fail on me today. It randomly just stops responding. Sometime it will mount and sometimes not. I will stop using it until I can get a replacement.

    Is there a 1TB drive out there that is better at taking abuse than the others? I drive a truck and use Front Row to listen to music while driving, all the music resides on my 1Tb drive. Trucks ride rougher than cars so I need something that can take the abuse.

    Also, are there any ways to help isolate the drive from the bumpy environment I'm forcing it to live in?
