I have a 500GB G-Tech external hard drive (the one that was meant for the MBP). It's been working perfectly for over six months now. Starting last week, every time I had it plugged into my MBP I lost the internet connection. As soon as I eject it, the connection is fine again.
I'm connecting it with firewire 800, but I've also tried using the USB cord and it does the same thing. Any help?
