    I have a Nexxtech harddrive enclosure, and it doesn't seem to want to work for an extended period of time. Once I get it to work and be recognized, I will turn it off, and the next time I turn it on, the computer will recognize it as a RAW disc. That is, unformatted. When I try to access it again after that, explorer will freeze. The jumper settings are set to master, so that's not the problem. I tried to put the harddrive into the computer, and all worked out fine. I tried another harddrive in the enclosure, and everything worked out great. So, its not the enclosure, or the harddrive, or any of the connections. I'm out of ideas. The harddrive is a samsung of sorts, and 80gig. I've formatted it to NTFS, because that's how I need it formatted. On a very rare occasion, the harddrive will show up, and will have no issues, but any files that I previously put on it are missing. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.
