Hi everyone! I bought an External HD IDE 3,5 Enclosure and set up my old backup (a 40GB disc just for the most important stuff) and I connected it into my iMac (24" Base Model) via USB 2.0. OSX recognized it within a sec. Problem is, I already tried to format it using Disk Utility in various ways (MS-DOS, UNIX, Mac OS Journaled, etc) and every time I drag a folder to backup it just freezes in 5 seconds after the transfer has started. To recover from this I have to turn off the disk from the power button on the enclosure since the little "stop copying" cross doesn't seem to work in this case nor ejecting the HD mounted on the desktop. Am I missing something here? Any help is appreciated. Thx in advance. EDIT: Anyone? can't believe it's the first time I have a problem and I get no answer even in MacRumors, lol, the world is changing!
