USB 2.0 and external harddisk crash
I'm having an Asus motherboard A7N8X-X, using Gentoo Linux with kernel 2.4.20-r7 and experience some anoying problem.
I have this external harddisk which is in fact a 2,5' in some USB 2.0 box (more specifically an Enermax EHD-251).
When I plug the disk I can actually mount it and can even read from it, yet after some time my entire computer just gives up. The sreen hangs and nothing works anymore.
Does anybody has an idea what might be the problem?
Thanks a lot,
