I have an Akasa SATA Hard Drive Enclosue with a 1TB Hitachi drive in it. The drive has about 400GB of HD video broken down into clips no larger than 10GB each.
I have been trying to transfer the footage from my enclosure drive to my pc in no more than 50GB at a time using USB2.
I haven't been able to transfer all my footage yet as every transfer never finishes as the drive disappears from my machine. I have other enclosures and drives again on USB2 and all work ok. Could it be a problem with the enclosure itself?
Do you have or tried an eSATA one - it's much quicker than USB2 (click here). And they usually come with a USB port as well, so if one connector fails at least you have another one that may continue to function. A few to consider at eBuyer click here, although Scan have a wider choice click here - Icy Box is a fairly good make.
If your motherboard doesn't have an external eSATA port, you'll need an eSATA internal-external adapter plate like click here. And at least one spare internal SATA header. G
