Filesystem sporadically unmounts
It's kinda sad that my second thread here is about the same drive than the previous one :?
But, anyway, I've got this (almost full by the way, hehe) 300GB vfat filesystem on an external hard drive, and I use it constantly. Recently, it started unmounting out of the blue. At first, it didn't happen too often, but it's been getting more and more common, and by now I can't go 15 minutes without the drive unmounting (I use it, among other things, for my music, so when it unmounts the music stops)
The problem is, nothing seems to be wrong with it: fsck doesn't report anything weird, and SMART tests say it's perfectly fine, so it's not some kind of mechanical failure. I bought it about three years ago, so I think it's relatively young.
I'm even starting to suspect of something stupid, like the cables (the usb cable I use to plug it into the computer and the cable that goes into the wall) or the drive case itself.
I'm totally clueless here, I know this might not be a software problem (although I sure hope it is) but if anybody could help me I'd be extremely thankful.
Edit: of course, if there's a breach of the rules by posting something that may not be software related in here, do let me know :)
