Maxtor 5000DV external Firewire/USB 2.0 combo HDD died: poor design subjected to drive to excessive heat
tried Western Digital model??, far to finicky: unplug in precise order, unplug before powering down computer, stop before unplugging... lost all my data twice. p.o.s. returned it to wonderful people at Fry's. Lost driver disc for Maxtor. email support horrible, phone support awesome. (don't need drivers for XP, or for Firewire under 98 with the Firewire update, however for USB 2.0 under Win98 need Microsoft mass storage update & drivers from disc or ftp site)
