I am baffled as to why this happens. Is this hardware failure or some obscure bug in the USB subsystem? I've seen this twice before, same external USB enclosure, two different disks: once with an ATA drive, twice with a SATA (the enclosure can handle both kinds).
I am running Dapper 6.10. Any ideas most appreciated.
