Question about Buffalo Technology DriveStation Combo 4 1 TB USB 20 Hard Drive
Try plugging your ext. drive directly into the back of the computer, don't use a hub. Should work better. A lot of serial ata adapters (which is what you have inside the fancy box) don't like to work through hubs.
If you aren't using a hub, then try plugging into one. Some G4 PB had finicky USB.

How old is your drive. If its new try these before going for a RMA.
Unplugged USB, reconnected - usb device has malfunctioned.
Unplugged USB & power, reconnected - drive and virtual CD now all ok.
Set eco mode to never and then uninstalled eco mode.
Let us know if you have something more to ask else please accept the solution.
Thanks for contacting fixya.com
