I have two external LaCie external firewire hard drives which are identical in their content (one is for backup). Both drives are fully functional but lately I am getting a "Disk Insertion" error message that reads "The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer" with the options to initialize, ignore or eject the disk. I know that nothing is wrong with the drive that it is referring to. I can select the eject option and turn the power off to the drive and then when I turn the power on again the drives mounts normally and everything is fine. I am just curious as to why this is happening since nothing appears to be wrong otherwise. It's not really a big deal but if anyone knows why this is occurring I sure would like to know. Thanks.
