in general..i would suggest finding an external harddrive that has it's own power supply...not one that's powered by the USB connection...the one's that are usb powered...tend to cause problems

I agree with the suggestion to get a drive with its own power supply.

Also, I prefer to get a separate case and drive rather than get a unit already put together. It tends to be cheaper that way and then you also know what kind of disk is installed.
