Default Problems with External LaCie D2 Harddrive

Hi All,

Wondering if anyone recognises any of the symptoms I'm getting with a LaCie D2 160GB External Harddrive:
(on Windows XP(SP2) host)

- Will usually copy files from the system harddrive the first drag and drop
- any further copies prompt delayed write errors
- Then can't stop the device for safe removal
- The drive contents disconcertingly dissapear and the drive shows 0items on it.

I'm tried the Microsoft troubleshooter but as with most microsoft products its not worth the code.

I'm trying to figure out whether it's the system or the drive that's causing the problem - I think it's probably the system because I've tried the device on a m8s computer and it seems to work ok. I'm just not sure on how to go about diagnosing exactly what the problem is and how to fix it...

Any help or suggestions much appreciated.
