This screwed me over right out of the box with this brand new computer. My old mac was backed up on a 500GB Western Digital drive. I plugged it into my new mbp to run migration assistant when I went to bed. I woke up and found that it froze part way through. Naturally that messed a few things up... I basically deleted that user account and started over again. But I still have issues any time I plug this drive in. It locks up the Finder maybe 20 seconds after being plugged in and the only way i can un-freeze it is by yanking out the firewire cable. I've noticed a few other people have had this same issue: one person here on MR: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1122712&highlight=firewire and a few people on the apple discussion boards: http://discussions.info.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID=13267954 We all seem to have the same drive. Does that mean Apple simply won't pay attention to the issue cause people can just get a different drive? I don't want to have to go and buy a new drive. Or will WD issue some kind of an update?
