Have a G4 MDD dual 1.25Ghz with 768MB DDR SDRAM.
I have a Maxtor external hard drive and a WD portable external hard drive. Both of them will randomly disconnect (and sometimes reconnect almost immediately), giving me the 'You disconnected and external drive without ejecting' warning. Usually happens when the computer has been inactive for a while, it never happens while I'm using it actively. Both drives are connected through a third party USB 2.0 PCI card from CompUSA. I have other things hooked up through this card (iPod and printer) and don't have any problems with them, just seems to be hard drives.
