Just to clarify... the process is slightly more involved if the drive in question has "more than one type of content", even if fully up to date, b/c then Windows (XP) doesn't give you the "do this every time" option. For that you have to actually access the drive properties autoplay tab, select "mixed content" then "select an action to perform" and then "take no action" and finally apply/ok.

I will always trust Seagate...

...if not to produce 100% failure-proof designs, then to do everything they can to fix the problem and make it right by the costumer.

Years ago I had a Barracuda die and need replacement under warranty. It was real clear when I sent it in that there was NO guarantee of any sort for my data. What I received back was a different drive (different serial) complete with ALL of my data. That's as good as I can ask for.

My WRT54GL running DD-WRT v.23 (can't remember if it is SP1 or SP2) at home has been running non-stop for well over 6 months (don't know exactly when the last time I booted it was, but it was most likely just b/c I was going to be gone for a week or two)

Can't say the same thing about the Netgear GS748T smart switch I have running at work, so I'm doubtful that Netgear vs. Linksys is the issue here... (yea I know, not apples to apples...)

The hardest part of climbing the ladder of success is getting through the crowd at the bottom.
