I have a Western Digital My Book 500GB Firewire/USB2.0 External Hard drive. Why this thing doesn't support S.M.A.R.T. is totally beyond me (this is a modern hard drive!!), but Disk Utility and all programs that check hard drive health via S.M.A.R.T. do not work with it.

I've noticed a bit of weird behavior from the thing lately and I'd like to know if anyone knows of any software to check hard drive health on the mac for hard drives not supporting S.M.A.R.T.

Thanks much.
