Third Times the Charm


Coolmax 3.5" Black - Aluminum USB 2.0 External Hard Drive Enclosure

Actually, it might be more than that....

Recently, I've been in the market for a new USB 2.0 hard drive enclosure...actually two of them.

As part of my backup strategy, I had purchased two Maxtor One Touch II 300GB units. The USB/Firewire model, since my preferred attachment method was for Firewire. But, they kept disappearing every time I rebooted my computer and it was really annoying.

I tried switching to USB 2.0, but this didn't solve the problem.

Some blog I had come across detailed the dissasembly of the drives, and that gave the idea of moving drive internals into a different enclosure. At the time my preference was for external enclosures that didn't use a seperate brick (I still would've preferred this), and I still wanted to maybe use Firewire again. So, I got a pair of such enclosures from eBay and was in business.

It would consistently show up after reboots, so everything was great.... until I moved last summer.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
