10.4: A fix for non-mounting USB drives in 10.4.10
Authored by: dan55304 on Jul 01, '07 07:02:41AM

I'm having a different problem related to a USB 2 drive. I have a 320g external Buffalo drive that has been running for a year on a MacMini serving up my music and photos.

Now, the drive periodically has the access light stay on and freezes all activity on the Mac until the drive is powered off. You know, the spinning lolly-pop of death. It seems to happen after the mini goes to sleep for some period of time.

I don't recall if it started after the .10 update or just before.
