off topic - HDD FireWire Vista Issue RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hello!

    When I wake my computer up from sleep it sometimes does not find my Western Digital 500 GB Essentials Edition FireWire HDD or it is very slow to find it.  This causes a mutlitude of problems including not being able to record TV shows, find files, or otherwise without pulling out the chord and reconnecting it.  I notice that the drive goes to sleep on its own after no activity for awhile.  I've installed the drivers but to no avail.  Any ideas?


    A Little Insight:

    Windows Vista Ultimate

    64-Bit OS

    4 GB OC RAM

    640 MB GeForce 8800 GTS OC

    Pentium Quad Core Q6600 OC
