    It's not by Seagate, it's been labelled wrong.

    I tried 3 HD's (WD, Hitachi, Seagate) on a external enclosure and none worked. It turned out to be a problem with the external casing rather than the drives. I switched to a acomdata enclosure and put the WD and Hitachi drive in and both worked. I think it's more of a external enclosure problem rather than a HD problem. My enclosure is this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16817729006. I've been running backups hours at a time for several weeks now with no problems. So if you have a drive laying around, this enclosure works fine.

    something that has always confused me is why does the enclosure of the HDD matter at all?

    surely it's just a case to protect the drive from dust/ damage? you could just slap an airtight plastic bag over it and you'd be sorted for an enclosure lol
