I thought it might be the USB on my motherboard, but I've tried this on a couple of systems now.
Now I'm suspecting the USB controller in the external Plextor 740UF drive is the source of my problems.
When trying to boot this drive on a couple of systems, it'll hang for 5+ minutes before continuing. Then hang for another 5+ minutes.
This is with WinXP, memtest86, SUSE Linux, and BartPE.
Anybody else have this problem with this drive (firmware 1.01 or 1.02)?
Can you do me a favor and check it out?
