  2. i went through a gigantic song and dance with a set of 2.5" drives and enclosures. i got a macally enc. and a samsung drive for a coworker. works great with 1 usb 2.0 cable. i had worse luck with the same drive and enc., needing 2 cables to actually power up the unit (if i used just 1 cable it would not spin up and just make clicking sounds). i tried putting the drive in his enc., and sure enough it worked with 1 cable. i ended up with a bytecc hotdrive, which worked fine with 1 usb cable, so all was well. i picked up a couple usb2 mini-b cables and kept one at home, one at work so that i wouldn't have to screw around with recabling if i popped between the two. i haven't used the drive in a while, but when i tried today yet again 1 cable failed me, had to use the supplied double-port cable. any suggestions on solving the problem with what i've got, a new drive, or a new enclosure? it appears that it's only missing the juice to spin up, once it's there it seems to run fine if i pull 1 cable.

    New SSD disk from Gigabyte

    interesting stuff about the hd, udaman. i don't own a camcorder and simply don't want to deal with tape. looked into the jvc everio and it didn't seem that great. maybe somebody will come up with something that can use the fledgling-standard 1.8" hard drives? laptop drives must be using too much juice, which is surprising.

    yeah. i want one of these things yesterday to do lots of queries on a database (which i would copy over just prior to doing so), but there's no way i'd use one to actually house data.

    New SSD disk from Gigabyte

    hello, all. i did 'come back' a few months ago to post something about pentium m adapters for desktop boards, and to wit there was no fanfare. i'll try to time things more optimally like this in the future!

    Is there a G-d again....

    you don't need to change the topic to express your hurt feelings, f_vo. i can try to locate a therapist in your area online if you'd like.

    i think it's a lot of peoples' opinions. i genuinely wish you would shut up.

    W500 WLAN 802.11a/b/g wireless card

    if you have xp sp1 you need the wpa patch (see google). if you have sp2 it should work if you 'allow windows to configure this wireless connection' (enable xp zeroconf)

    New forum software version

    the fact that your reply is like the only thing that fits on my 1600x1200 screen? on the main page i can only see 14 topics per screen before i have to scroll. everything seems to have large padding/whitespace. it's not the font.

    Offline Folders

    i leave it off because it constantly tweaks. either it goes offline when the network is available, or (even better) it sees itself as online but only shows selected/random files from the share.
