Unhappy External Drive cutting off..!!

sponsored links

ok not sure where to post it so I guess here will do.
I dj ,just re-formated internal drive and updated with all serv pak 2
bought a external drive a simpledrive 250 gig.
loaded it up with my music and continued to dj a gig.
for some strange reason the second gig I did the drive would keep cutting out....lights all on..the music plays from the drive and the music would stop and then you would see the auto play(box) kick on becuase it was reconecting to the drive and would have to restart..(thank god for old school cds..) but I tried the external drive on my home computer and it works fine. now the 100.00 question...
Do you think its the Harddrive-- or the usb ports driver? (its usb 2.0 not firewire) or powersuply to laptop? I am lost..need to get this fixed but do not know where to

If the drive works ok connected to another comp, i would say the drive is fine.

You need to have the USB ports checked, do this if poss by using another drive connected and see if this is ok or still doing the same.
