i just got my warranty ibm 60g ata 100 harddrive 3 days ago, put it in a external usb2/1394 enclosure, everything was working fine. i try playing a 30 + tracks project and capture 1 hr dv, no problem.
something happened last nite, i boot my pc, turn on the external harddrive, go to my computer, click on the drive, error message 'cannot read format or something(cant remember what exactly it is), then i do a quick format and the drive can be read again.
i have fat 32 for the whole system, internal ide drive 1 and 2 partitions r fat 32. when i got this ibm drive, i format it as ntfs(i want to have fat32 on this drive but i cant),coz under windows xp, i can only choose 'ntfs' when i format, dont know why. do u think it might be the problem? as far as i know, i can have ntfs and fat32 running at the same time, m i wrong? please correct me if i m.
i also do the drive fitness on my ibm, it is in good shape.
knock on the wood, i hope it is not the defective ibm drive.
