I have a WD My Passport Studio which has a dual USB2/FW800 interface. It was working fine on my old Powerbook G4 but when I upgraded to my new MBP I noticed that heavy IO on the drive when connected via FW800 causes the drive to hang, and subsequently hangs the entire computer. Shuttling files back and forth seems to be pretty reliable but I've worked off the drive when doing photos in LR and it seems to crash it pretty regularly if I'm not careful. I read online that others have had this problem too and it seems to be some kind of hardware issue and honestly I don't expect there to ever be a fix. Using the drive over USB2 seems to be reliable but there is a performance penalty with the slower interface. I was thinking of retiring the drive to do USB-based archive duty of my Time Capsule (this would simplify my current backup scheme a little), and replacing my "working" external drive with a new USB2/FW800 external that does not have such problems. Anyone have recommendations? I am aware of the OWC enclosure but personally I don't care much for the looks and would like to see if there are other alternatives as well. I had to go to the Apple Store today to get some service on my computer. I mixed up the appointment time and ended up arriving early. While I was there waiting I looked at the external drives they had available there and was wondering if anyone had experience with some of the other brands. I saw there was an iomega eGo which was USB2/FW800. I liked that it had a metal enclosure and also the dual interface. Anyone use this drive or know of problems with it? Other recommendations?
