New Seagate ST3000DM001 keeps 'ejecting'?
I successfully swapped out the original Seagate 1Tb drive in my 27" iMac for the above 3Tb drive (and a Samsung EVO 250Gb SSD) a week or so ago and everything went very smoothly.
Unfortunately I'm now getting an issue where the internal 3Tb Seagate will randomly 'eject' and I'm not able to mount it again without rebooting the machine from scratch.
It seems to happen if a large 'copy' process is initiated - i was trying to automatically recover my iTunes library by bringing all my files back to the drive from iTunes Match using 'Make Available Offline'...it gets so far and then stops/ejects :(
For info the machine is i7 3.4Ghz, 1Gb ATI G'Fx and 32Gb @ 4*8Gb (upgraded from the original 16Gb @ 4*4Gb)after the drive swap) of Kingston 10600 1333MHz CL9.
I'm not sure if the RAM as I didn't get the error in the intervening week ...but I also didn't try the iTunes download then either ??
I've just updated the Seagate Firmware to the latest but the error recurred just after so this update hasn't cured it..
*Slightly Shameless Bump*
Is this a good question?
