[PLUG] Weird drive quantum states

A number of times I have been copying things to a usb drive and the drive simply unmounts itself (or just plain disappears, if you'd prefer). No form of cajoling seems to reattach it, even though dmesg indicates it is mounted.

Just the other day I was backing up, like a good computer person should, and an external drive not only disappeared, but now only provides read errors (uh-oh).

What makes drives go away during use?
