Hello all. Just bought a seagate 1.5TB external desktop hard drive and it wouldnt mount of its own accord and I had to force mount it when I wanted to use it. After a couple of hours transfering data across it started making weird clicking noises. This turned out (after some googling) to be a common problem regarded to be the signal of its impending death. So I took it back and got a refund.
The above in mind, Im wondering if anyone has experience of this drive:
Buffalo DriveStation TurboUSB HD-CEU2 1.5TB

Im wondering if there are any compatibility problems with Hardy Heron or any other reliability/performance issues I should be aware of.

All comments gratefully received.
