i have a bunch of mp3 files and pro tools sessions on this HD.
i was uploading to my ftp site and i heard the power down sound
from it and then quickly it started up again, but then i got the colorwheel.

waited but ended up having to unplug and endure the warning because i didnt eject it first. but i had no choice because it wouldnt let me even shut the computer down.

when i finally plugged it back in, i did a disk utility diagnostic on it and it said there was no problem with it.

so i decided to try and copy a big folder to my desktop.
it started to work, but in 5 seconds there was that same power down power up thing and colorwheel.

what's going on?
