    I have no major problems with this drive. Everything works and it's very quiet. But the capacity gauge doesn't seem to display anything. I've tried both USB and FireWire 400 (which is supposed to be faster on the Mac). Is it my Mac, or is anyone else having this problem?

    EDIT: It appears the software isn't compatible with Leopard and they are working on it for the end of this month. [Via]

    I noticed this too, but it is not all that big of a deal for me. Does yours seem to make a ton of noise when it is writing to the disk?

    It makes the same noise that a regular hard drive does when it's writing. Slightly louder than my MacBook's hard drive noise.

    Okay, thanks, mine may have a problem then, the noise isn't exactly the click of death, but is enough to make me worry a little. And it only happens when it is writing info to the hard disk.
