Arrow Problem with External HDD


Hello all,
Since I haven't receive a solution in the corresponding freecom forums, I decided to post my topic here.

So...

Here is my setup:
I have all-in-one device from freecom, called "FSG WLAN"(ARM based) http://www.openfsg.com/index.php/FSG connected to Samsung Story 1.5GB external USB HDD having dedicated power supply, which seems to cause me problems from time to time.

The problem:
After several hours of transferring files over ssh and samba to the external HDD, suddenly the FSG generates an error and the external HDD gets remounted in read-only mode.
According to the logs, the reason for that error should be: "<6>sd 3:0:0:0: SCSI error: return code = 0x00070000"
I have searched in google but I cannot find any feasible solution.

~ # uname -a

Sorry, I don't have a definite answer for that.
But I've experienced similar problems with hard disk that seemed to work fine for a while then fail because of power supply issues. However, in your case this is unlikely since your HDD has its own power supply.

Yepp, I am prety sure that the problems are not caused by the power supply.
I think that they are produced by the USB drivers... but I haven't found a way to fix it, yet.

gotta disagree...

I would confirm that there is no drive-hardware issue first...

running it for a LONG time with alot of accesses on a different source/system,
swapping out the P/S with one of the same values,

It is possible that this drive has become 'heat sensitive' and is failing due to 'internal issues'.

... my 2cts.
