Ive been working on a rather large project on Final Cut Pro for some time now and my SeaGate 1tb FreeAgent external hard drive im using keeps disconnecting on me, this makes it impossible to export large files because it will disconnect before they have enough time to finish the export. Some times the hard drive will stay connected for almost an hour, but usually it will disconnect at around 30 minutes.


Ive tried setting the Energy Saver setting so neither my computer or my display will go to sleep, ever. Ive checked the  external harddrive itself with disk utility several times and its always fine. Ive tried different cables, unpluging other unused usb and firewire cables, Ive upgraded my ram, just about everything i can find it the forums, and still no luck. I have other hard drives that i use that work fine.  What solutions are out there? Please help.


Im using a Intel Imac 24th 2.16 Core 2 Duo with 2.5 GB of Ram.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
