Question about Maxtor One Touch III 500GB FireWire/USB2.0 External w/16M buffer Retail ****... 500 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive
I've ben editing with the Max4 tower ext drive since May with no problems. Suddenly, my FCP began freezing during playback and upon relaunching (after having to Force Quit) the icon doesn't appear and FCP alerts me with a "scratch disk is missing" message.
I've tried the usual restart-shut down-unplug/replug-reboot quick-fix, but no dice. So...how do I get it back? And is all my data lost?
FIXYA! Hey, found out my maxtor issue...pretty much by accident though, with a little pinch of desperation. I powered down my MacBook, disconnected the drives (2) from their firewire and power and waited for about, oh, I dunno....30-40 seconds. Upon stubborn study of the power supply, something told me to just switch one adapter for the other!
So...I did it. Once plugged back in to my power strip, both LED's lit up and stayed continuous. Then, I just reconnected their firewire ports and, voila!...I was back online. Hate to think all that stress was just a matter of swapping power cords...but...here I am.
Hope that helps someone else.
