Need en external hard drive for digital music

  Wenailemhard 00:20 13 Feb 2009

I am a mobile DJ and I need advice on choosing an external hard drive that will hold 100,000 digital song files. I need one that will not be affected by vibration. The one I have been using for about three years will STOP playing when it feels just a slight vibration or any slight change in electrical current. This is VERY annoying!!!!!
Thanks for the help!!

Mount the drive on foam to stop vibration, allowing for ventilation.

Use a mains conditioner such as click here

Shock protected etc apart from huge capacity.

Only just been reduced in price.

Thanks for the help...I already have the unit mounted in foam with ventilation and it still stops? Didn't know about a mains conditioner...I'll look into that. Also, the Maxtor looks like a possibility.
Thanks again!
