Hi Linus,

thanks a lot for your quick reply! My box runs 2.4. I think it's no
electronic problem because:

a) It runs with USB. After fixing some corrupt files it's working again.
Nevertheless would be interesting to know what the error was.
b) The harddisk comes up and runs repeatedly, when the error occurs.
