It is independently powered. If i connect drive directly to my computer it won't even start (i mean drive doesn't even starts to rotate).
Do you think that although i am using externaly powered hub to connect it, it still might be a current issue?
I also thought that it might be a power issue, but every time this happens, it shows exatly "transferred 64525/65536" (always the same number was transfered), and as far as i understand it, power problems would result in more random distribution of transfered amount of data.
Perhaps it is problem with cables (one package was not sent because of transfer error?)
I played with max_sectors parameter file.
max_secotrs - error at
128 - 64525/65536
64 - 32768/31757
32 - 15373/16384
The difference is always the same and equals 1011 bytes. I am starting to think that this is usb-transfer problem. I will try to experiment with different cables.
I exchanged cables between hub and pc, and between hub and disk and also tried both exchanged - in each case errors were the same. Changing usb port on pc also didn't help.
