    Probably hardware failure. Dunno if there is anything you can do about it.

    I can't relate, but try searching if there's a vendor program that controls the sleep cycle on the drive. It could be retarded, and wanting to sleep for whatever reason. Most Seagate drives have official software that you can use to control the sleep cycle (or even better, completely disable it.) Of course, this requires that the drive have a fat partition on it so the software can see and use the drive.

    All else, like a previous poster said, it could be bad. I've had quite a few brand new drives that were just plain busted straight from the box.
