My WD Passport (Model WD5000MT) when is connected with firewire800, works great for some minutes (i can copy/delete files, mount/unmount, etc…).
After 10/15 minutes my mac get totally frozen and I can do nothing.
The only solution is forcing shutdown with the power button.
These are my specs:
MacBookPro Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4Ghz
Mac OS X 10.6.2
All WD Software is up-to-date (Turbo, driver, etc…)
I had the same issue even with Mac OS X 10.5
Can someone suggest how to solve it?
