Freecom external enclosure - RIP

Well its not my week for breaking things - last week my dvdrw died now my extrnam hard drive is playing up

Kept getting USB device malfunctioned errors, tried it on a couple of different PCs.

My heart sank as the drive contains 250Gb of important data. It was recoverable but spanned over 40 DVDs :eek: Strange it wasnt working becuase the drive inside was spinning up normally so i managed to get the drive out of the enclosure.

Installed the drive ( it turned out to be a WD caviar ) in the main PC and thank god it works perfectly, so it looks like its the enclosure thats failed.
